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, obscuring the design in progress, but also preventing the glass dust from becoming airborne.
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.
