Sparkling Teal Dichroic Glass Cabochon Pendant and Dangle Earrings Set with Red and Black Streaks
The first thing that strikes the viewer of this beautiful dichroic glass jewelry set is the sparkle! Deeply embedded under a cap of crystal clear glass is a teal blue/green shimmering base that has a crinkled texture that captures every ray of light! The colors shift toward blue or green, depending on the angle of the light. There are streamers of red and black that streak through the glass, creating line and dimension.
The pendant is a squared oval glass cabochon, more rounded at the bottom and measures 1.5 inches (3.5mm) tall by 1.5 inches (2 mm) wide, not including the bail. The bail is silver plated.
The earrings are just delightful and dangle beautifully! They have a kidney shape with silver plated bails coming off the dip on the top like stems on a cherry! The ear wires are sterling silver. The cabochons on the earrings measure .75 inch (1.5 mm) tall and 1 inch (1.3 mm) wide.
Wear this intriguing jewelry set for a formal occasion, business or a fun day out! This handmade jewelry will make a great gift for your best girl friend!

What is dichroic glass? Dichroic glass was first developed by NASA for it's satellite mirrors and it is applied in extremely thin layers under very controlled conditions. Di-chroic means two colors and this glass reflects/transmits different colors depending on the angle of light. When it is worn with different colors, it appears to pick up and reflect some of those colors so it really enhances the total look. I call this the "mood" of the glass and it is tricky to truly capture this quality in a photograph. My jewelry usually looks better "in person".
I wear my handmade jewelry almost every day. People have often stopped me to look at the dichroic glass and ask or comment about it. Wearing this jewelry myself has been my best advertisement.
