New Fused Glass Dichroic Technique

One of my goals is always to try new fused glass techniques. Well, this is one of them, it’s based on Mark Lauckner’s Patreon courses. He is a fabulous artist and I love his techniques, so unique and fascinating. I won’t go into how to make the technique, but I will tell you I find it a bit addicting. It’s a technique that requires cold working so here are some of the pictures prior to cutting them into shapes.

This was my first try at the technique, I love these so pretty. Especially the how the dichroic comes up the sides. They are transparent so I drilled holes in them. I didn’t take pictures of the back of the pendants but the back is pretty cool as well.

As you can see, I went a bit crazy. The pictures don’t even do the pendants justice. You can also see the tiny champaign bubbles, but it doesn’t bother me. I just love them all. Again, I drilled holes in each of the pendants.

I also changed the technique up a bit and here are some pictures of some of the pendants I created. I remembered to take pictures of the back. They are so pretty.

I also added some color to them. So beautiful, I’m curious which version is your favorite.

I know you are wondering, Karen did you keep any of these beautiful pendants? So, I normally wear my snap necklace and this technique is mostly transparent which is difficult with snap jewelry. That being said the bottom two pieces were mostly opaque, so I put snaps on them and kept them for myself. They are stunning.

One of the things I love about Dichroic is how many different techniques that can be used with Dichroic Glass. Here are just a few other Dichroic pendant techniques. For even more Dichroic Techniques check out the blog posts at the very bottom of this post.
