In this stunning piece of statement jewelry, I have created a gorgeous landscape in green and blue and gold dichroic glass! Then, a beautiful and colorful tropical bird on foliage, done in enamels, is fused into the glass. The dichroic glass in this piece is simply stunning and creates a sparkly landscape behind the bird! You will get compliments every time you wear this lovely pendant. It is 2 3/4" long including the silver plated owl bail. The width is 1 5/8". This is a big and bold piece of jewelry. I include an 18" silver plated ball chain.
Dichroic glass’ most distinctive appeal lies in having different transmitted and reflective colors, both appearing as completely new shades. The transmitted color is that which we can actually see through the glass. The reflected color is what we see when light bounces off the surface. In dichroic glass, these two colors transform depending on angle of view creating a remarkable play of light.
Dichroic glass is created by the dielectric application of multiple layers of fumed metal oxides onto a glass surface accumulating to a thickness of three to five millionths of an inch. These metallic layers create an “interference filter” producing a dazzling rainbow of transmitted and reflected colors. The applied dichroic coating is permanent, chemically stable, and can be tempered or laminated.
Every item in my shop is handmade by me in my 2000 sq ft studio. I have 3 kilns, grinders, saws drills, tools and tons of supplies, and a jewelers bench and tools. I love working with glass and silver.
