These hand-pulled glass stringers of copper/gold-reflecting dichroic glass are a great way to add the sparkle and flash of dichroic glass to your lampwork without the burning and scumming that often happens when dichro is worked in the flame.
Recently a friend of mine came to my studio to learn to make beads - she had never worked with glass before. By the end of the afternoon, she was making beads with dichro stringers, and she never had a problem with the dichro burning! Say good-by to the heartache of scummy, burned dichro and hello to the sparkle.
These versatile stringers are a great way to add a whole new dimension to your lampwork. Because the dichro particles are fully encased, you can use the stringer as a surface decoration on your beads, as well as encasing them further in the bead.
These copper/gold-reflecting dichro stringers are made from copper/gold dichroic glass folded in and wrapped around itself, and then encased in an additional layer of Reichenbach 104 Crystal glass. I then pull this bundle of glass into stringers ranging from 1.5-4mm in thickness that are loaded with copper-gold sparkles. These stringers are very labor intensive to make, and provide quite a challenge to keep the layers of dichro from burning before they are encased, but I think the end result is well worth it.
This listing is for 0.3oz of copper/gold-reflecting dichroic stringers which generally is 4-6 9" stringers, depending on their thickness. The beads are shown only as examples of what you can do with this stringer. The beads themselves are NOT part of this listing.
If you would prefer your stringers thicker or thinner, convo me and I can probably pull a special batch for you
