Stunning Iridescent Square Dichroic Glass Post Earrings in Rainbow Colors
These little dichroic glass post earrings are stunning squares of iridescent dichroic glass. Handmade with two layers of fused clear, iridescent dichroic glass, these little stud earrings reflect all the soft pastel colors of the rainbow! There is a slight texture on the top of glass that catches the light and adds sparkle to the dichroic layer. These are small, feminine earrings that would be great for every day wear. They will go with anything in your wardrobe and can be dressed up or down with your fashion needs.
These delicate little earrings are square and measure just under .5 inches wide (1 cm ). They are mounted on sterling silver posts and fastened with sterling silver clutches.
What is dichroic glass? Dichroic glass was first developed by NASA as part of their satellite mirror systems. The extremely thin dichroic coating must be applied with lasers to the sheet glass in very controlled environments.
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. When the dichroic layer is on top, like it is on these earrings, the metallic colors become reflective.
All Umeboshi jewelry is handmade by the artist at Dark Hollow Studio in the Appalachian mountains of West Virginia. Each piece is carefully fired and annealed in a digital kiln for a perfect results!
