The dichroic glass in this glass pendant comes this way with silver and blue stripes. The stripes provide a lot of design opportunities. I have made a number of different designs with this dichroic glass. I made a small glass pendant with blue on top and silver on the bottom. I also made a couple that included stripes of both colors. These two colors go so well with each other. I really love the silver dichroic glass and who doesn’t love blue.
I added a clear layer of glass on top of the dichroic glass and then fused them together. This really makes the glass pendant really sparkle. Before gluing the bail on the back, I roughed up the sterling silver plated bail and a small area on the glass pendant with a dremel tool to provide a better surface for the glue to adhere. I use E6000 glue. Let the glue dry for a number of days and then gently pull on the bail to make sure the glue has an excellent hold. I always check the hold because I want to sell only glass pendants that have a strong hold. Sometimes the bail needs to be glued on two or three times.
