Fused Dichroic Glass Teardrop Necklace in Shimmering Pink
A unique fused dichroic teardrop shaped pendant on a base of black layered with several styles of dichroic glass for lots of shimmer and sparkle. Mostly shades of pink, green and yellow with hints of blue in this one of a kind piece.
I have attached a hand formed sterling silver decorative bail that was oxidized to darken the recessed design for some contrast.
This pendant started out in a solid teardrop shape for the initial fusing. I then ground the edges to further define the shape and drilled a large hole for the bail. The glass was fused a second time to soften and polish the ground edges and drilled hole.
Pendant measures 1 3/4" long (including attached bail) and 1 1/16" wide at the widest point.
This necklace comes ready to wear on an 18" sterling silver snake chain. If you prefer different style chain or no chain at all, please contact me for pricing adjustments.
About glass fusing: Each piece of fused glass is formed from several layers of sheet glass that is fused together at about 1500 degrees to form a single layer of glass. The glass is then cut and/or the edges are ground to shape each piece. If faceted cubic zirconias are added, holes are drilled into the glass for the placement of the CZ. The glass is then fused again in the kiln to soften and round the edges for a finished look. Some pieces can be ground/shaped and fused many times in order to achieve that perfect shape or matched pair for earrings. After each kiln fusing, the glass is properly annealed through a very slow rate of cooling to insure its strength and durability.
Dichroic glass pieces can be difficult to photograph as the colors can change based on the light conditions but I do my best to showcase the true colors.
