What is Dichroic
Glass? The dichroic coating was developed by NASA
for its space program. The dichroic coatings are microscopic
particles of metal that are applied to a surface using a vacuum
process. Dichroic glass changes color depending on which
way the light hits it. The dichroic reflects the light in 3
ways, creating the different colors you see in a dichroic piece.
The dichroic process is applied to glass of different colors
and textures, and each change, and what the artist combines
it with, creates a different look. At Stoned Glass, we often
use more than one layer of dichroic glass to create jewelry
with incredible depth and reflective colors. Therefore
you will rarely see any two that look exactly alike.
Do you take
custom orders? Because all of our pieces are one
of a kind we do custom orders on a case by case basis. We can
melt your bottles flat and make plates/bowls to suit you but
you may have to allow some artistic license.
How do I pay
for my orders? We prefer PayPal. You can
use the secure link on our site and pay right on line.
We do accept checks and money orders as well. We will
ship your order as soon as we have received payment and it has
cleared. Since checks and money orders are sent in the
mail it will take longer. We also process credit cards via the
breakable? Yes, glass is breakable. Most
of our fused pieces are fairly thick and have been dropped by
us (oops!), and rarely break. Some of the thinner pieces
(float glass for example) is more fragile. All glass jewelry
should be treated with care. We do guarantee our craftsmanship.
We do not guarantee against breakage from dropping or other
Can I buy
your jewelry anywhere else? If you are lucky enough
to live in the Gilroy California area you can buy stoned glass
directly from us! We show our art at local art and craft
shows throughout the year. You can find us at the Gilroy
Art and Wine festival in September, Fortinoís Winery art and
craft show, and other local shows especially around the
