Each piece of my dichroic glass jewelry is handcrafted at my studio on the coast of Maine, where I get my inspiration. Complimentary colors of glass & dichroic glass are carefully layered until I achieve the desired effect. The layers are fired several times at temperatures between 1300 & 1800 degrees until I achieve the desired degree of dimension. 3, 4 or 5 layers fuse to produce irregular 3 dimensional fiery pieces.
Dichroic glass was developed for NASA. It’s glass on which very thin layers of metal have been deposited; causing some wavelengths of light (colors) to be transmitted while others are reflected, causing interesting - and beautiful - color shifts. The appearance of the various pieces of jewelry changes in different light and as light strikes them from different angles.
My camera cannot capture the breathtaking colors, and I cannot make any two pieces exactly the same, nor do I want to. Your piece will NOT be exactly as shown here, but you WILL receive compliments when you wear any of these unique pieces.
