These fused glass earrings are so cute! My inspiration for making these earrings came from the need for red dichroic fused glass earrings. There isn’t any dichroic glass that is red. There are a few that are close, but they are more of an orange color. So, I thought I would put silver dichroic glass on top of some red opal glass. I have made some pendants that are similar to these, as well.
I recently talked with a lady who puts red translucent glass on top of silver dichroic on clear glass. This also looks very nice. I later tried this, but I couldn’t see the dichroic through the red glass. So, I realized I needed to use a thin red glass instead of the regular thickness. I keep forgetting to buy the thin glass, but one of these days I’ll get around to it!
