Description

Dichroic glass jewelry is some of the most beautiful silver jewelry to be created in modern times. American Indian jewelry from the Pueblo Indian tribes of New Mexico, Arizona and Texas has alway been a leader in southwest style silver jewelry. Now, dichroic glass pendants and earrings set in .925 sterling silver are leading a new revolution in handmade jewelry.

Once again the masters of the southwest are offering amazing creations. This time the artisans of Albuqueque have teamed up with the world renowned Taxco silversmiths to offer dichroic glass jewelry that is unsurpassed in quality and brilliance.

This type of sterling silver jewelry is hand made similar to Navajo Indian jewelry of the southwest. Using a combination of modern technology and old world craftemanship the artists have created something amazing. Dichroic glass using a sophisticated technique to deposit a thin coating of metal oxides and quartz crystals on the surface of shaped and polished glass. The result is an iridencence like that seen in nature in the rare fire opal. Imagine the color shifts of a hummingbird's wings as viewd from different angles. Because almost all of the light hitting this jewelry is reflected by the dichroic glass, the colors are alive and brilliant bringing out a purity of color unlike any other colored or stained glass in the world.

Pendant measures approx. 3/8" x 2" including bale

*20" Sterling Silver Chain Included
