This is a beautiful sparkling dichroic glass pendant and earring jewelry set with a pendant that has been wrapped with an argentium sterling silver wire!  The brilliant kiln-fired cabochons are the color of fire that shifts from copper, to orange and a deep red!  There is a flame shape in the top layer of glass on the pendant that adds to the suggestion of fire.  The sparkle in this glass is like millions of stars.  It was difficult to capture the brilliance and sparkle with a camera.  The dichroic layer was capped by a streaky clear glass that forms a protective and smooth dome over the dichroic layer, creating a beautiful depth of color. 

The dichroic pendant measures 1 inch wide and 2 inches tall, including the argentium silver wire bail.  The cabochon is a sparkling oval that has been securely wrapped with argentium sterling silver wire. A groove was routed along the sides of the glass to accept the wire.  This unique pendant can be worn alone or with the matching earrings.  A silver chain, neck wire or simple black leather cord would set the pendant off nicely. Necklace options can be found in the necklace section of this shop.  This listing does not include a necklace.

The earrings measure .5 inches wide and 1.75 inches long, including the ear wires.  The long, narrow cabochons that dangle from the ear wires have a narrow band of dichroic silver that mimics the wire wrapping on the pendant.  The ear wires are good quality sterling silver with tiny wire wrapping and a silver bead at the bend.  These earrings dangle beautifully and catch all angles of light.  They are sparkling and enchanting and can be worn alone or with the pendant.

Argentium sterling silver is a very high quality sterling silver that resists tarnish.  It requires less polishing than regular sterling silver and has a beautiful soft shine.   As with all wire wrapped pieces, these should be stored gently.

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 with lasers 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 because of it's ability to color-shift.  #P152
