A closeup of one piece to show the detail.
The colors in these glass cabs are much more intense than the photos show - there are metallic and irridescent effects in each piece. Some of the closeups will give you a better idea of how the pieces look; the metallic sparkle and shine of the glass is often lost in photographs. The dichroic glass relects and transmits different colors and looks different depending on the surface it is placed on, the angle of light and other factors. I guarantee the actual cabs look even better!
Multiple pieces are available for some styles, while others are one of a kind. Not all are shown. Each piece is handmade; so even when there are multiple pieces available, they will have slight variations. Some will have small bubbles.
You can also make beautiful wire wrapped jewelry from these glass cabs. These are some samples of my work; I also make pieces with Sterling Silver/Goldfilled wire.
Below: "R" pieces - $6.50
Larger pieces; these are ideal for wire wrapping into beautiful jewelry (or add a glue on bail for a fast gift!)
"W" pieces - $7.50
Largest pieces and/or more dichroic. Impressive jewelry pieces or when used as a focal point on a gourd.
These are examples only!
These items are beautiful when inlaid into your gourds or used as accent pieces.

Small Silver Bail
Etched Dichroic Glass Cabochons
The dichroic glass is engraved prior to fusing so the design is embedded inside the cabochon. Designs are Petroglyphs (spirals, kokopellis, running sheep, etc.). NOTE: These are samples only. Your piece may vary.
If you have a preference as to design or basic colors, please send me an email.
