I have seen some beautiful dichroic glass set in sterling
silver as pendants, bracelets, earings and brooches on one of
the home shopping network. Has anyone in this group tried the
I took a 3-hour workshop on dichroic glass. Learn enough to
experiment. The firing process requires some watching over.
(Don’t have my instructions in front of me so this part is from
memory.) After reaching the firing temp, you need to quickly
drop the temp to somewhere around 900 F and hold for about 20
minutes. Then let it cool naturally.
There is a lot more to it than that, but this process suffices
for me because I sometimes use dichroic accents on PMC jewelry.
The glass fuses into the PMC but the usually shears parallel to
the surface. A dab of glue and it works beautifully.
