#416 - Metallic dichroic glass pendant with electroformed copper finding
This fiery pink dichroic glass pendant has been electroformed with copper and comes with a 24 inch copper chain.
The pendant measures just over an 1 inch wide and 2 inches tall.
I begin the process by layering multiple pieces of dichroic glass and melting it down into one large slab. I then cut the slab down into individual cabochons that I either melt further, cold-work or finish with the electroforming process.
The electroforming process can take anywhere from 12-48 hours, depending on the size and detail of the piece. Each piece is given a turquoise/brown/black patina, then carefully polished in certain areas to bring out the copper below. Finally each piece is sealed with wax or lacquer to preserve and protect the finish.
