Dichroic Glass Pendants

27 Mar

Great Necklace Idea
The best thing about these little beauties is that you don't have to be a jewelry designer to make a gorgeous necklace for yourself. You just buy the pendant, run a cord or chain through the holes that run through the top of the pendant, and voila! You have a necklace that will be the envy of your friends and coworkers. These pendants are very affordable, and the colors are breathtaking.

About Dichroic Glass
The brilliant optical properties of dichroic glass are the result of multiple micro-thin layers of metal oxides. NASA developed dichroic glass for use in face shields in space suits. Layers of different metals – gold, silver, titanium, chromium, aluminum, zirconium, magnesium, silicon – are applied to the surface of the glass. The glass is then kiln-fired at extreme temperatures in a vacuum.

The resulting plate of dichroic glass can then be fused with other glass in multiple firings. Certain wavelengths of light will either pass through or be reflected, causing an array of color to be visible. Due to variations in the firing process, individual results can never be exactly reproduced. Each piece of fused dichroic glass is unique, and no two pieces can ever be the same.

    Your pendants are gorgeous! How do you keep the hole in the pendants for a cord? You do such a nice job of making the hole without it being so obvious.
