Fused Dichroic Glass and Sterling Silver Earrings with Faceted Cubic Zirconias
Lovely dichroic glass earrings in shimmering shades of black, blue, green and purple with hints of red and yellow formed into a diamond shape, each with an embedded 3mm clear faceted cubic zirconia for added sparkle.
The glass is first cut, layered and fused together to create the base shape. The edges are then ground to further define the shape of the earring and a small hole is drilled for the placement of the faceted CZ. It is then fused again to soften the ground edges and to permanently "set" the 3mm cubic zirconia. These gemstones are not glued onto the glass but fused into the recessed hole for a sleek look.
Each earring is attached to a sterling silver fan bail and hang from sterling silver earwires. These components are not silver plated but genuine sterling silver.
Each complete earring measures 1 1/8" (27mm) long from the base of the earwire and 1 7/8" (37mm)long from top to bottom. Earrings measure approximately 5/8" (12mm) wide at the widest point.
About glass fusing: Each earring is formed from several layers of sheet glass that is fused together in a kiln to form a single layer of glass. The glass is then cut and the edges are ground to shape each piece to create this matched pair. The glass is then fused again in the kiln to soften and round the edges for a finished look. Some pieces can be ground and fused many times in order to achieve a desired shape or closely matched pair.
