Fused Glass Dichroic Jewelry Necklaces

My favorite part of working with glass is designing something unique, from the original sketch to the shiny finished piece.  I created some fused glass pendants that incorporate different types of dichroic glass.  The color of dichroic glass shifts as the angle of light changes creating a rainbow of colors within each pendant.  My favorite is the fish tail swimming away on an wavy blue ocean.

Each pendant is made from layers of dichroic and Bullseye glass and fired in my JenKen kiln to temperatures ranging from 1425 deg F to 1550 deg F depending on the final thickness.  I use E6000 to attach bails to the pendants and let it cure 48 hours.
