For many years my jewelry work was mainly fused dichroic pendant and earrings work. As the years went buy my interest shifted from doing production glass work to working with metal. I have limited my glass work to just large and what I feel are standout pendant designs. This is a beautiful sparkling dichroic pendant. The colors are a big wow better than a photo can show. You will be purchasing a truly unique one of a kind dichroic pendant.
It starts with cutting a large layer of black base glass. I then have close to 40 different small pieces of dichroic glass ready to stack. I use glue (this is just to keep the glass in place while building it) and stack a layer of different texture dichroic glass. Then stack another layer of glass going the opposite direction I will scatter some small pieces of clear glass followed by another layer of dichroic glass. Once I have all the dichroic stacked another layer of clear glass on top. The pendant is now close to 1/2″ high. Into the kiln where the glass is melted to where it becomes one solid layer of glass. I do not get in a hurry when I fire it nice and slow help to keep the bubbles down. I will now use my grinder to get it in the exact shape I want. I drill a small hole for the sterling silver bail. Using a diamond blade band saw I cut grooves into the glass where the sterling silver wire will lay. This is a a free form no design pattern in mind.
Back into the kiln for what is called fire polish. The kiln work is complete Kiln time is 2 days to complete the dichroic pendant. It is now time to take the sterling silver wire and bend twist forge it to give the wire character and then wrap wire around the bails wire for more strength.
You will receive compliments every time you wear this dichroic pendant you will not find another one like this is truly a unique one of a kind dichroic pendant
This dichroic pendant does not come with a rubber cord due to the size and weight of this pendant it needs to be on a much more secure chain. It is best to be safe.
