Thinking about Neil Armstrong and his passion working with NASA…who knew the NASA research using dichroic glass would filter down to be used by glass artists? Multiple thin layers of metals and metal oxides are vaporized in a vacuum chamber to create the amazing glittering effect. Colors shift depending on the reflection of light. It’s true beauty cannot be captured by a photograph.

These two dichroic glass beads were made to fit onto European charm bracelets. It’s also fun to string them on a chunky silver chain to wear as a necklace.
