example of what can be made

What is dichroic glass? Dichroic means two coloured, and dichroic glass is glass with a coating of micro - thin layers of metal oxides applied to the surface. These relect light wavelengths and causes an irridescent effect on the glass. The glass appears to be different colours when viewed from various angles and lighting. They create wonderful and diverse combinations of colour to your silver piece.
