Eye-catching and mesmerizing, these earrings are sure to be your best conversation starter.
Measuring approximately 3/8″ in diameter, these fused glass earrings are lightweight and delicate; comfortable enough for every day wear. However, the conservative size won’t take away from the vibrancy of the pair. These gorgeous coloured earrings are a perfect gift for your special someone.
The colour of the earrings are the dichroic coating, which is encased within the glass and will never fade or wash off. You can trust that you’ll enjoy the stunning colour for as long as you own the earrings.
How’s It Made?
Handcrafted from art glass, we create the Dichroic Stud Earrings using multiple steps. First, we cut and polish the glass to the appropriate size. Next, we arrange dichroic glass on the kiln shelf and top with layer of clear glass. The dichroic coating crackles during the firing process, which reflects the light from many different angles and create a unique sparkling effect. Because the colour is the dichroic coating between layers of glass, you won’t ever have to worry about the colour fading, or the delicate texture peeling or washing off.
Once we place the glass into the kiln, we fire to a temperature to ensure the edges round completely, creating a smooth rounded bead. Once the glass is cooled, we prepare the glass for the adhesive; a two part UV glue for maximum strength. During the kiln firing, the glass is annealed. Therefore, the strength and durability of the glass is increased, so you know the jewelry will easily withstand regular use.
