Dichroic glass pendants- how they are made.

Dichroic glass pendants continue to be a best seller again at art and craft fairs. Pendant and earring sets are most popular just now, it makes sense really to buy a matching set. I get a lot of ladies asking me to make them dichroic earrings to match a pendant they have already. It’s better to buy a set as they are cut from the same piece of glass so they will be a perfect colour match.

It’s not surprising that dichroic glass jewellery is so popular, the colours are amazing, and what woman can resist a bit of sparkle. The tiny pieces of glass are all hand cut, this pendant has several layers of dichro, giving depth to the design, this is a large statement piece of jewellery.

I have been working with dichroic glass for a number of years now and I still love the moment when I open the kiln door as you never quite know how the cabochons will look until they are fired.

Here’s how I make the cabochons for dichroic jewelry , it’s quite a painstaking process cutting and layering those tiny pieces of glass .

I have added a new dichroic glass range to my website for those who like sterling silver. These pieces are designed and made by myself, hallmarked, and entirely hand crafted in my studio.
