“Dichroic Amber Glitz” is made of dichroic glass which is of an amber color with beautiful flakes of gold. Dichroic (pronounced “dye-crow-ick”) glass, commonly called dichro for short, literally means “two coloreds.” It is derived from the Greek words “di” for two, and “chroma” for color. It was thus named because of its fantastic multicolored and reflective properties. When you look at this glass, it appears to have more than one color at the same time, especially when viewed with different lighting.
This reflective phenomenon is known as thin-film physics, which is also why you see swirling rainbow patterns in a soap bubble, floating colors from oil on water and the dramatic colors of dragonfly wings. These amazing dichroic design elements add flash and pizzazz, sparkle and intrigue to jewelry, creating a sense of luxury and artistic class. This piece is exclusively wrapped in copper and has two Swarovski Elements worked into the pendant. The adjustable chain that graces the pendant is handmade link by link with beads colored amber and brown, the clasp of this chain is also handmade and fired. Original design by Amanda’s Treasures.
HOW TO TAKE CARE OF COPPER WIRE JEWELRY
Over time your copper pieces will patina. Please use a jewelry cloth to lightly shine your pieces, please do not use liquid jewelry cleaners. You will notice that you can not reach every surface with the jewelry cloth, the areas that are left untouched by the cloth will stay darkened, this adds a more dimensional look to your piece. I would not recommend you sleep or swim with your jewelry. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
