This fused glass pendant is topped with dichroic glass. An exploration of texture and color play, the Carved series is the definition of deeper engraving.
As with all glass, the carving and engraving is done underwater to keep the glass cool, also preventing the glass dust from becoming airborne during the process. The water obscures the design in progress, so I am always happy when a piece comes out nicely.
Some pieces from the Carved series tell a story and require the telling of it. In every pendant, the natural textures in the dichroic glass are embellished with carving.
When dichroic glass is the top layer, it has a subtle texture. Dichroic glass is already magical, and now you can feel it, too. I love that there is no light reflection bouncing off this series and the details are clearly visible from every angle!
Measurement of the glass is 1/2″ wide x 5/8″ tall.
*Please note the necklace cord is sold separately.
The sterling silver bail fits onto a 1/8″ (4 mm) chain or cord.
Each handmade Thistle Glass piece has been properly annealed in a kiln for added strength and durability, and every bail has been professionally heat set to ensure the best bond possible.
