About dichroic glass:
Dichroic glass consists of a base coloured glass which has been coated with thin layers of metallic oxides such as titanium, silicon, and magnesium to selectively reflect and transmit wavelenghts of light. The main characteristic of Dichroic Glass is that it has a transmitted colour and a completely different reflective colour. Furthermore, these two colours shift depending on angle of view displaying a wonderful, iridescent play of colors.
The fusing process:
The glass is cut to shape, the pieces are combined in several layers and then fired a number of times in a high temperature kiln to produce some stunning colour combinations and shimmering effects. Once fused the glass is ground to shape and fired once more to achieve the final polished finish.
The unique qualities of dichroic glass make it work brilliantly in jewellery. The color changes with its environment and viewing angle creating dynamic, wearable art.
I make every effort to present each item on our website as accurately as possible. However, dichroic glass is notoriously difficult to photograph. Furthermore, the images you see depend on your monitor’s display and colour capabilities. Actual colour of the product may differ slightly from the images shown.
