Second, can anyone recommend a good adhesive with which to
bond fused dichroic glass to sterling silver?
Yes. Use a two component glue (in Europe I would recommend "Araldit"
but I don't know if it available in yur part of teh world. And yes,
let the metal surface where you want to glue be rough or roughened
and see to it that it absolutely clean - no fingerprints etc. Happy
