Announcement   Welcome to Ornamentalglass. (NOTE: Due to Spectrum Stained Glass closing for economic reasons, I can no longer get the iridized glass that I have used for my Rainbowlightcasters for many years. Click on the dichroic, top left, RainbowLightcaster to see a few pics of my next generation of RainbowLightcaster. It has replaced my previous version this September 2016. Any of my designs are available in the new dichroic type. If you would like one of the dichroic type press the custom button, tell me what you would like and I will make you a listing. The new dichroic ones reflect the image from the design on either side of the piece, with a spectacular array of colors around the image. The color changes when the angle changes. They have a leaded crystal at the bottom which sends rainbows around your room. They also change color as they turn, Blue/magenta and copper/green. As with my other RainbowLightcasters they are for inside only. The cleaning and hanging instructions will be the same. Any of our RainbowLightcastes can be made custom for you, from our selection of designs, pick the front and back design and color of glass you would like. I have been working with glass in unique ways for over thirty years, and have shown my work at fine art and craft shows throughout the southwest, as well as fine art galleries. I am self-taught so many of my techniques are specific to me. I am now showing my RainbowLlightcaster house ornaments and my latest jewelry line here on Etsy. I have been crafting and constantly improving my RainbowLightcasters since I invented them 40 years ago. They are constructed from a pure silver image, iridized stained glass, leaded crystals, and beautiful glass beads. I hand bevel all the stained glass and dichroic glass used in my work. I have been working with dichroic glass since it first became available in 1987. Dichroic glass is high-tech glass that has a molecularly thin layer of metal deposited on it in a vacuum chamber. Each of my pendants is a hand beveled doublet of dichroic glass This gives it fantastic optical properties. When back lit it has a color shift between two to three different colors depending on the angle viewed. When worn the pendant will show this color shift on the beveled edge. The glass also has a reflective color shift which will change as you move. While you wear your pendant, light and viewing angle will change causing a wild variety of texture and hue. I never use commercial decals or designs, each pendant begins with my original hand drawn art. I do not melt the dichroic glass so the glass retains its brilliance and crispness of design. I also drill a precise hole in each pendant instead of gluing a bail to the back. This makes each pendant fully reversible. All bead work involved in these pieces is wonderfully crafted by my wife Elsie Marie. I have many more designs and will continue to add to my shop. remember please check out my blog,( ornamentalglass.tumblr.com ) which includes even more of my glass art and has a video of me at an art fair demonstrating a RainbowLightcaster....Thanks Richard Elvis

This is my second time ordering from OrnamentalGlass. I ordered the same cold worked jewel again because I loved it so much (the first was a gift). I hadn't ordered a lightcaster before and I have to say the dichroic glass option is truly stunning. The shop owner, Richard, is beyond kind and communication is fast and efficient.
