Create beautiful colorful jewelry using dichroic glass (pronounced "dye-crow-ik"). This special glass changes color and can be combined with other glass. It will look different depending on how light hits it, what it's blended with, and even the kind of light its in. In this class held at Studio 34 Creative Arts Learning Center, students will design two pendant size cabochons suitable for necklaces and one ring.
Please note: Prior glass-working experience is required for this class. Please wear closed toe shoes. Please bring safety glasses; if needed, they are available for purchase from the studio for $5.
