A Unique Piece of Artistic jewelry

Friday, November 19, 2010

Dichroic glass gets its fantastic brilliance from metal oxide being vaporized into glass sheets inside a vacuum. Initially used for the visor of NASA’s space helmets, dichroic glass has turned into one of the most beautiful and unique jewelry style available today. No two pieces are the same in color or reflection, but each one is sure to dazzle. Dichroic jewelry will make you stand out at even the most formal of occasions and you’ll wow anyone you meet with the unique coloration of each piece.

When these dazzling pieces of artistic jewelry are made, they are vaporized to give them their color filter layers, and then they are cut and stacked into the proper shape before fusing in the kiln. Dichroic glass jewelry is often kilned several times to ensure that the pieces stay tightly together. Finally, they are annealed, ground down, and firepolished to produce a soft, amazingly brilliant piece of jewelry. Many times, artists will do extra finishing work to bring out more layers of the glass and thus adding to the brilliance as well as the variety of colors in the jewelry.

Dichroic jewelry is one of the most unique kinds of jewelry on the market making them popular for all occasions. Whether you are wearing dichroic earrings, a necklace, bracelet, or a simple charm, there is no doubt that you’ll continue to stand out with all the unique reflecting colors. As you move about the room, the colors in your jewelry will sparkle and shift as the light hits the glass from different angles. These dazzling features are just a few of the brilliant things about dichroic jewelry that has brought it to the forefront of the jewelry industry.

Dichroic glass is also used in a variety of interior décor and china. Visit Beyondbeads.com to see unique wearable art glass at its finest.
