Beautiful Butterfly

I've been experimenting with a new kind of dichroic glass called crinklized dichroic, as it leaves a crinkle effect. It comes as a smooth surface and when it is fired, the dichroic surface crinkles, sending thousands of miniature crystalline-like mirrors upwards and creating dynamic shapes throughout the glass. I've noticed some of the colors turn out with this effect better than others. I made this butterfly pendant and the pink really turned out great. If you click on the picture, you can see it bigger with more detail. I'm sure I'll be experimenting lots more with this glass, so stay tuned!
