All that glitters...

I don't work too much with dichroic glass. It's not because I don't like it, I think it's stunning. I just get involved more in experimentation with other glasses and techniques. But every once in a while, the shiny, sparkly glass will catch my eye, and I will sit for hours playing with it.

Sunday, I got caught up layering transparent dichroic with different shades of transparent glass. I tend to like things simple and clean when it comes to dichroic glass, kind of a "less is more" philosophy. I got some interesting results...some good, and some okay, but all glittery.

  1. I learned a new word today, thank you;). Looks like you had great results with that di..dich..., um, glittery glass. I like it!

  2. Gorgeous! My daughter bought me one of your necklaces and I love it.

  3. Thanks Maggie Ann, it's so nice to hear that you love your pendant!
