  1. About glass fused pendants:
    1. Glass fusing is the process of heat bonding of separate pieces of glass in a kiln. Temperatures reach over 800 degrees Celsius.
    2.  Air bubbles within the glass is common and gets formed when the air is trapped between the glass. 
    3. We offer a wide range of opal, transparent, iridised and dichroic glass.
    4. Dichroic glass is produced by glass and micro-layers of metal or oxides which give the glass shifting colours depending on the viewing angle of view,
