Discover a treasure in this handmade one-of-a-kind dichroic fused glass pendant!  The large pear-shaped dichroic glass cabochon in this unique pendant is securely wrapped up in heavy gauge argentium sterling silver wire.  Argentium sterling silver resists tarnish and is a jeweler's delight!  

This fascinating cabochon came out of the kiln with a lot of character.  It has a sparkle and depth that will hold attention for a long time.  There are many layers of dichroic bits with layer of clear glass on the top.  This allows light to come through the pendant as well as reflect off of it!  The colors are mostly blues and purples with hints of pink and flashes of teal!   I love to wire wrap pieces like this and never know what I will do until I start to work!  Each piece is wrapped differently as a result.

This statement pendant is beautiful on level after level of dichroic splendor, thus it's name, "Splendid Treasure".  When the light reflects off of this pendant, the fascination is undeniable!

This listing is for the pendant only.  This pendant looks especially nice on a strong silver necklace and will set off your wardrobe beautifully.  Necklaces are sold separately in the necklace section of this shop.

So what is dichroic glass? It's characteristics are just amazing! 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.

I make All Umeboshi jewelry 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!
