I am always on a quest to make red glass dichroic earrings. I order red dichroic glass, but after I fire it, it comes out more orangish-red. Anyway, these cute glass earrings are 1 1/8″ high and 1/4″ wide at the top.
I adhered the sterling silver plated bails with Triolyse. This is my favorite glue for gluing bails to glass earrings and glass pendants. I have found that the bond is very strong and very few bails come off in my “pulling test.” I have tried several kinds of glues, such as different kinds of epoxy, rear window glue, and E-6000.
I like the shape of these glass earrings, too. After firing these glass earrings, I ground them to a point and then fire polished them.
If anyone can help me with firing red dichroic glass so it stays red, or help me find a certain brand of dichroic glass that makes truly red dichroic glass, please leave a comment. If you are having the same problems, please leave a comment, so we can share in our struggles 🙂
