Review: Dichroic glass pendant by Nancy Giere

by on Sunday, July 4th, 2010

Let’s talk about Nancy Giere, because she’s a fused glass artist who makes really, really ultra-cool jewelry. What she specifically makes is Dichroic Glass jewelry, and her company is NGlassWorks – which is a cute way of including her initials (N.G.) into the word Glassworks. In her own words, dichroic glass is made in this process: “Different sizes and shapes of glass are stacked in unique designs and fired in a kiln. During the fusing process the glass comes alive and takes on a whole new character. After the first firing each piece is cold worked and fire polished in the kiln multiple times until I’m satisfied with the overall design and quality.”

Of course, she does not stop there. She creates unique pieces of jewelry with the dichroic glass she makes. I was lucky enough to receive a piece to look over. Care to zoom in with me for a closer look? ZOOOOOOM!

Hello pretties! "NGlassworks combines Dichroic, iridescent and sheet glass to create one of a kind art glass jewelry. "

I became a proud owner of a classic dichroic glass pendant from the Green Goddess collection. When I think of glass jewelry it makes me nervous, because I worry I’ll break it or that it’ll be super heavy. Well, the pendant does not seem fragile at all, and it’s not heavy because Giere has put it on a wide bail, and used a very strong black satin cord (which has a typical sterling silver necklace backing on the ends of the cord, so it’s easy to take on and off). The images remind me of two things:

1. Van Gogh paintings.

2. Jewelry that Angela from the TV show Bones would wear.

Are you a green goddess, too? Let's find thrones!
