This small but bold colored paperweight is loaded with pieces of dichroic glass that reminds me of the photos of an asteroid belt I once saw. However it was not near as colorful. Each paperweight is a one of a kind design, no two are alike.It and will make a beautiful and affordable gift for any occasion, especially for those who are hard to buy gifts for.

All paperweights come in a red flocked pouch, wrapped in bubble wrap and boxed up.
If you would like a personal message sent with it, just put it in the SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS section.

It was created by layering many pieces of cut hand-cut glass layered in a mold, and then fired in a kiln. It was then fused at 1500 degrees for several hours and then slowly cooled (annealed) to ensure durability to the glass to prevent breakage in two separate firings. Then the edges are ground to create a more finished piece, and the firing process is then repeated to create a beautiful polish.
