Dichroic Glass

Dichroic glass is an opaque material, created by either stacking layers of metal oxides or mixing those oxides with glass. This creates a stunning effect that is unlike any other type of jewelry. I make all my own dichroic glass for use in my jewelry.

I love the flexibility of working in dichroic glass – how I can bring out different colors, how the colors shift as the light changes, how the material can be shaped, and how readily it can be fused with other materials.

If you’re looking for a truly unique piece of jewelry, dichroic pieces are a great option.

What is Dichroic Glass

Dichroic glass is a captivating material that appears to be different colors in different types of light. It dates as far back as the Roman Empire, where it was used to decorate the Lycurgus Cup in the fourth century, making the cup appear either green or red depending on the lighting. In more recent history, dichroic glass was popularized by NASA in the 1950s and 60s, when it was used to protect space shuttles from radiation. The reflective, color-shifting properties of dichroic glass is the result of thin-film physics. This is the same phenomenon that creates the iridescent coloration in soap bubbles, oil, and dragonfly wings. Today, this unique material is mostly utilized in jewelry, used to create earrings, pendants, beads and more. Dichroic glass jewelry is created by applying metal oxides to a glass surface and then firing it a kiln at high temperatures, which fuses the oxides to the glass.
