Astronomical Jewelry and Dichroic Glass Jewelry
What is Dichroic Glass? and Why it makes great Astronomical Jewelry?
Dichroic glass is glass containing multiple micro-layers of metal oxides which give the glass dichroic optical properties. A plate of dichroic glass can be fused with other glass in multiple firings. Due to variations in the firing process, individual results can never be exactly predicted, so each piece of fused dichroic glass is unique. Over 45 colours of dichroic coatings are available to be placed on any glass substrate.
It is the flexibility of being able to create so many diverse patterns, colors, and designs that make it a great choice for making astronomical jewelry.
