About

Handmade in Wyoming

How did you start your shop? How does it all work?
I started beading in gradeschool making jewelry for myself and my mom. I would walk to the hobby shop and buy tubes of beads, string them and then set up a table on the sidewalk to try to sell them. I didn't have much luck, but that didn't stop me.
Sewing was my favorite class in high school, and I would stay up late fashioning an outfit to wear the next day.
Years later, I lived in Arizona and was inspired by the beadwork that I saw in stores. I bought a book and taught myself the basics. After a lot of trial and error, I started to sell my creations at local craft fairs and stores.
Then I saw a fused glass stone. I immediately wanted to pair it with my beadwork, and Godyssey Glass was born.
The name? My gorgeous daughter Shealyn was trying on my jewelry for some photos and the word godyssey came into my head. Goddess and Odyssey together--or a woman's journey. Well, this is mine. Enjoy.

Dichroic glass is glass containing multiple micro-layers of metals or oxides. The main characteristic of dichroic glass is that it has a particular transmitted color and a completely different reflected color, as wavelengths of light either pass through or are reflected. This causes an array of color to be displayed. The colors shift depending on the angle of view.
Dichroic glass dates back to at least the 4th century AD. More recently dichroic coated glass was used in the laser industry as a product of interference, filter technology and vacuum deposition. It is still used in laser and photographic applications, and in theatrical film projectors such as IMAX.
I use dichroic glass in my jewelry along with regular fused glass to give depth and interest to my stones. I layer the glass and fuse at about 1450 degrees.
At this temperature my square cut glass pieces spread and round—somewhat like baking cookies!
To make my cowboy stones, I use regular fusing glass and heat to 1450 degrees. Then I add the 22K cowboys and fuse a second time at about 1250 degrees. When the stones have cooled, I do all the wire-wrapping, gluing, soldering and beadwork myself to create a finished piece of jewelry. This makes every piece Handmade in Wyoming!
