Multi-color dichroic glass pendant, 18-inch chain
We think this beautiful pendant will get you lots and lot of compliments.
The luminous dichroic glass is painstakingly made by hand by our friends at Renaissance Glass Studio in N. Carolina.
pendant measures about one and half inches long and three-quarters of
an inch at the widest part. Not too big, not too small.
Dichroic glass displays two or more different colors by undergoing a color change in certain lighting conditions.
How are these made? Glass sheets are coated with a microscopic layer of metal oxides. This coating acts as a prism and splits the light into brilliant colors. Since no dyes or pigments are used, 90 percent of the light returns to your eye as pure color. This explains the luminous color and unusual brilliance. It also displays multiple colors depending on the angle of the light entering the sheet. This creates the dance of colors unique to each piece. In nature, this effect is found in rainbows, birds, insects and even minerals - - especially opals.
The glass is fired in special kilns to just under 1500 degrees for 12 hours.
