The material:
Dichroic glass consist of a base coloured glass which has been coated with thin films of metallic oxides to selectively reflect and transmit wavelengths of light. The results is a glass displaying a wonderful, iridescent play of colours.

The fusing process:
Each dichroic glass jewel is an original unique creation completely hand worked. In a time intensive 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.

The colours:
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.
