One of the wonderful qualities of glass is its depth -- using layers of transparent glass, your eye can wander around within a piece. I have used this quality in glass scenes, as in the landscape piece shown above in the header, and also in jewelry. Of course layers of glass make for a thick piece -- not always desirable in jewelry! So I have been working on create layers of dichroic (sparkly) glass that are still thin enough to make good jewelry. It's not easy to photograph these pieces because the camera doesn't know quite where to focus, but I do my best. My latest piece, below, was made with a base layer of red and three layers of transparent dichro. It's about 1" around and will be set in silver as a pendant.
