A former coworker of mine, Joni, and I were discussing a pendant I had on, as well as my Fenton Art glass bead bracelet. Joni mentioned making dichroic glass jewelry. When she brought some in a few days later, I took one look and immediately hooked!
I’ve posted a photo of some of the pendants and earrings I bought from Joni – at relatively inexpensive prices too! Aren’t they fascinating and lovely? The photos really do not show how exquisite and elegant the pieces are though. As the light hits each piece you see different colors and sometimes different imagery within the patterns.
I’m so intrigued by the colors and feel of these glass items, as well as how unique each piece is. I’ve always been a fan of art glass though, having grown up near the Fenton Art glass factory in Williamstown, WV.
My glass jewelry also reminds me of how my dad (having been a truck driver) would bring home glass marbles for me when I was a kid. I loved playing with marbles!
Dichroic glass is so interesting! I continue to marvel at how the appear, when the light hits the variety of colors in the glass. Also, I put my attention on how I can see shapes or pictures within the pieces. Each seem to conjure mysterious and magical wonderings.

If you’ve had a dear pet cremated you can contact someone who makes dichroic glass, and ask about preserving a tiny bit of their remains in a memorial glass dichroic pendant. How loving is that?
