Twisted Rainbows Handmade Dichroic Glass Post Earrings
Here are some pretty little post earrings handmade with twisted layers of dichroic fused glass. The rainbow pastels in these sparkly stud earrings are beautiful and look as if they were swirling in water.
The feminine post earrings shine with pink, soft greens, silver and pale gold. the dichroic bottom layer is over laid with squares of sparkling clear glass placed at 45 degrees to the bottom squares. This creates a floral look.
The posts are made of sterling silver and the clutches are hypoallergenic with wide bases to securely hold the earrings. These post earrings will be easy to wear at almost any event and will work well for active women and girls. This will be a wonderful gift for Easter, Mother's Day or a birthday!

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 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 capped, like it is in these earrings, the colors become rich and mysterious.
I make all my jewelry at Dark Hollow Studio in the Appalachian mountains of West Virginia. Each piece is carefully fired and annealed in a digital kiln for beautiful results! These earrings have their own inspiration, made especially for you!
