Dichroic Glass Jewelry and
Home fused Glass lampwork beads contact
The earrings have pure silver wires fused within. I have been experimenting with new shapes and designs. These new styles are fused with dichroic exposed for satin texture. The elongated diamond shape are especially time consuming to make and require multiple iterations of fusing.
Each pair is accented with coordinating gemstone or Austrian crystal beads. The wires are sterling silver. Unless noted otherwise the earrings are about 1" long from the bottom of the ear wires.
To make the barrettes light weight the thinnest glass are used when possible and quality made in France findings are used to make them durable. The barrette findings range in size from 50mm to 85mm. The size of the finding is given with each barrette. These curved findings come in one piece and will not come apart. Many of the barrettes cannot be duplicated because they are made from recycled dichroic glass where I piece the scrap dichroic and art glass together in coordinating colors, fuse and shape the glass many times before slumping it over a barrette mold. This is a time consuming process but hopefully you will appreciate the result.
