Handcrafted Diagonal Stripe Fused Glass Dichroic Pendant

$22.00

Although it is hard to see from the photo, this handcrafted fused glass pendant has rich blue, bronze and purple diagonal dichroic glass stripes running along the upper left side.  The dichroic glass on the lower right side is sliver toned with starbursts of bronze color.  The background glass is black.  The pendant is striking in good light natural light.  This pendant is set with a Sterling Silver wire that lays in a groove around the outer edge of the pendant and locks in at the top with a decorative handcrafted multi-loop bail.  This stone will not fall out of the setting.
The pendant measures 1 1/4″ wide and is 2″ long, including the bail.

THE PENDANT COMES WITH A FREE SATIN NECKLACE CORD, BUT IT ALSO LOOKS GREAT ON OUR GOLD AND SILVER NECKLACE CHAINS AND NECKWIRES.

Description

The Fused Glass and Dichroic Glass pendants in this collection start out as three layers of hand cut glass pieces that are carefully assembled, stacked, loaded into a kiln, and slowly fired to a temperature of 1400 degrees.  This melts and “fuses” the glass layers together. Each pendant is a “one-of-a-kind” piece and cannot be duplicated.

This pendant contains Dichroic Glass, which is amazing to work with, and keeps me guessing, because I never know how the heat will change the glass or what the finished piece will look like until it comes out of the kiln.

Dichroic glass was developed over 100 years ago.  It has the unusual property of reflecting one color (when placed against a dark background), while transmitting another (when held up to the light).  Dichroic has a shimmering effect similar to the iridescence observed in an opal.  Quite simply, different colors can be viewed in dichroic glass by examining it at different angles.  The colors are brilliant, saturated wavelengths of light, making them exciting additions to jewelry and decorative houseware items

 

Rather than relying on a “glue-on” bail, I chose to hand grind a groove into the outside edge of each shaped and fire polished piece of glass.  Then I inset a Sterling Silver or 14K Gold Filled wire tightly into the groove and finish it off with the decorative bail.  The glass piece is NOT coming out of that setting.

These pendants look great on one of our neckwires.  (See Accessories),

Each kiln-fired glass pendant comes with a satin necklace cord in your choice of size and color.  A necklace size chart is pictured below.  Our available sizes include:  16″, 18″, 20″, 24″ and 30″.
