The name of the dichroic glass is called “Jet Stream.” I bought it from artisandichroic.com. I am not really sure why they named it “Jet Stream.” However, I name most of my glass pieces and some people probably wonder why I named it what I did 🙂
These dichroic earrings are just one layer of glass. My husband drilled the holes for the earring findings. I put a small piece of kiln shelf paper in the hole so it wouldn’t seal back up. I put the glass earrings in my small Skutt Firebox kiln and did a fire polish to round off the edges and corners.
The colors of these dichroic earrings really change after firing. You can see how the earring on the right has a little more green in it. The colors also change as you move them around in the sunlight. These are really cool earrings if I do say so myself 🙂
