DICHROIC JEWELLERY MAKING

Dichroic glass is something special & unique, known for its multi-coloured & reflective properties

Dichroic glass is very unique in its craftsmanship, adding colours and creativity to fused glass, transforming ordinary glass into something fashionable.

 

Containing multiple colours, it’s opalescent, prismatic. The reflective property is a phenomenon known as thin-film physics, as seen in soap bubbles, the whirls of multiple coloured patterns. Dichroic fused glass changes colour accordingly to the light & angle that it’s held.
