What jewellery lover could not fall in love with this amazing colour changing, shimmering glass! Shake Your Glass use it to create a selection of glass pendants and earrings that will make you feel glamorous. Dichroic (pronounced dye-crow-ick) glass is fondly referred to as “dichro“. It is a colour shifting glass that appears different colours when held at different angles. The dichroic coating reflects particularly vibrant colours hence making it so popular for accessories.
Originally designed by National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) for use on satellites and space shuttles it is now also commercially made for the use of glass jewellery and art.

Expect to see amazing depth in my dichroic work. I have experimented with the glass in the kiln uncovered to give a matt look and covered with clear glass to give a gloss finish. Etching designs and layering glass create a unique Shake Your Glass twist. Know that your dichroic piece will fetch compliments when you wear it. Prices start from just £8 for dichroic stud earrings.
