How It’s Made
Welcome to my handcrafted glass art jewelry gallery. Here you will find jewelry made from specially tested dichroic glass. Starting with several pieces of raw glass, I handcut and design each piece by using tweezers and layering different colors of glass. By manipulating time and temp, I can create a unique round, square or a 3D appearance. I have a 12″ shelf that will hold 50 to 100 pieces (depending on size) and then fuse in my kiln. 1350* is considered a tack fusing and allows me to keep specific shapes. I ramp my digital kiln up to 1500° to create a round shape. All pieces are annealed for strength and durability (cooled at a very slow rate).
From start to finish, each piece has approx 15-25hrs invested into it, depending on the desired effect. Because each piece is handcrafted, it is unique and cannot be duplicated. My goal is to design something special for you and to make you feel good while wearing my art designs.
