UHHhhhh... Pardon me, is that a PARTY you are wearing??!!
How much FUN is this!!??
The Dichroic Glass "jewel" (center piece) is layered with as many as six layers. With-in it, there is an added depth of hand etching (note the subtle spirals), design and exotic glass all fired at high temperatures to fuse into jewel quality. After the "jewel" is made, it is ground and shaped then placed on black glass designed with an etched mosaic of dichroic glass which is assembled around it, 24K Gold over glaze is painted on creating more detail and then re-fired at a lower temperature to retain texture to the glass and overall piece.
The Dichroic "Nuggets" are torch formed by ME!
Further wire wrapping and embellishments with 14K gold filled wire dichroic "nuggets" glass, more fired elements, niobium and beads.
Center piece is: 2.5" x 1.25"
