What Is Dichroic Glass?

"Dye-CROW-ick!"

The word "dichroic" comes from the greek word, "dichroma" meaning two or more colors. This presents when holding a piece of finished dichroic glass. If you tilt the piece a new flash of color presents itself!

 

Dichroic Glass is what originally inspired Jordan to begin working with glass in 2009. Since then, she has dedicated countless hours to researching dichroic glass, exploring new techniques, and developing her skill. She is the only instructor in the Boston area that can guide you through making art using this medium.

 

In her classes, Jordan will teach you all the tricks you need to know to create a beautiful set of dichroic glass jewelry. You’ll leave feeling confident with a piece that will have you bragging.
