DICHROIC glass Cabochons PENDANT accent tile bead wire crafts PMC 90 coe (8)- All Fired up Studio
Welcome to All Fired Up Studio!
8 dichroic cabochons in variety of awesome blues,green, gold,reds: each cab has layers and layers of dichroic glass fused as one with a cap of clear on the surface. The cabs range in size from approximately 32mm x 35mm to 40 mm x 40mm and since everything is handmade they aren't exact they can be a little smaller or a little bigger. The quarter is used for reference of the size for the cabs so you can get an idea of size. All of the cabs have a black or purple iridized base unless otherwise noted and all of the edges are smooth.
This listing is for 8 handmade, Dichroic Fused Glass Cabochons or tiles that you see in the pictures above. This picture doesn't do its justice!! Quarter is for size determination and the Quarter not included in this listing!!
Every piece is designed and handcrafted in my home studio. I have been creating with glass since 1995. A lot of thought goes into each and every piece prior to its birth. First, I hand pick all of the colors, shades & textures to be used. I then cut the pieces to the desired shape and size. Some pieces are then ground down on my glass grinder to smooth out any edges or to simply shape them. I then carefully stack the pieces until I come up with a look that excites me. At this point, the piece is carefully placed into the kiln, careful that each piece stays in place and doesn’t shift. This is where the fun begins, over the next 24 hours, the piece will gradually heat up to 1400 - 1500 degrees. Once the piece has completely cooled down, I remove it for grinding a second time. The piece in then placed back in the kiln for a final fuse- called Fire Polishing, this is what gives it that smooth and polished look. In some cases a cabochon may visit the kiln many times before it is considered complete. Once all this is done then they go back in the kiln to anneal at 960F for 1 hour. I give much attention to annealing (cooling) my pieces properly, this insures that the piece will remain strong and maintain its strength & durability. I love what I do, and I believe it shows in each and every piece I create.
They all have nice edges and are cased or capped with crystal clear glass. They can be used for back splashes in bathrooms, kitchens or even the fireplace accents. They can also be used with PMC, with wire wrapping, you can add bails for pendants or blank bails for other jewelry types, it can even be used for door knobs. Your imagination is your own limit to what you can do with these cabochons. They are all flat backed and do not have a hole.

Dichroic glass pieces are very difficult to photograph because of the reflective properties of the glass.
I have done my best to portray them as they really look, but they really are more beautiful in person. Please remember that different monitors display colors differently.
