Dichroic Glass Pendants

To create these pretty pendants, all you need to do is place a scrap {or several} of dichroic glass on top of a colored or clear fusible glass circle and glue it down with a tiny drop of Elmer’s school glue.  Sometimes, it’s fun to use an irregular shape, as I did in the photo above, while other times it’s fun to find or cut a piece that’s a rectangle, square, or other regular geometric shape.

Dichroic glass is usually black glass with a shiny, reflective, and sometimes patterned coating on top, so when it fuses to the circle underneath, it gets that great thick black outline around it, which I think adds to the fun of the piece.  For this last one, I decided to take four tiny leftover pieces and put them together like a puzzle on top of a clear circle.  I love seeing the colors and patterns next to each other.

Once your piece is glued together, place it on a piece of kiln paper inside your microwave kiln and fuse it according to manufacturer’s instructions.  Let it cool completely; at least 30 minutes with the kiln lid still on and another 30-40 minutes after the lid has been removed.

Once your piece is fused and completely cool, you can glue on a bail, add a chain, and wear it!  You could also choose to turn it into a ring, a pin, a keychain, a magnet, or anything else you like.

I don’t know about you, but I just love the contrast of the reflective dichroic glass, the black outline, and the colored base…
Which one is your favorite?
