Loop pendant made up of a fused glass bead centerpiece of pink, violet, blue, and green shades of dichrotic glass - my own glass work, is surrounded by pink, blue, and silver iridescent czech glass bead rondelles with little silver accents.
The fused glass center bead was made using a multi-leveled process - layering teeny little pieces of clear and black dichroic glass onto clear and black glass plates, and then sandwiching those plates together with a special non-burning paper that made the hole for the bead. Beads were then sawed from the resulting plate of glass, ground to the desired shape and then refired in the kiln at a lower temperature for smoothness and to give them some extra shine.
An eye catching piece that gets a lot of compliments.
The loop is double-strung with strong nylon coated wire and hanging from a satin cord which closes with a lobster-claw clasp that has a teeny starfish charm accent.
