Whenever we visit our family in Arizona, we love to go to craft shows and artisan shops and always get inspired. We have been lucky to find glass artists who are happy to share their discoveries. One such generous artist at a Fountain Hills craft show introduced us to the concept of glass tiles. Each tile has three layers: base colour, dichroic glass and a clear top. 

Each tile is cut to make matching pendants, bracelets, earrings, etc.

Jewelry Sets

When glass is melting in the kiln, it will stretch as it melts. The dichroic surface cannot stretch so it has to fracture. It fractures into patterns that cannot be duplicated.

In order to have matching pieces, the glass must be fired at the same time. (Like snowflakes, no two are alike).
