***"What is dichroic glass"? Dichroic glass (pronounced dye-crow-ick) is a type of glass that has amazing multi-colored, reflective properties, especially when viewed at different angles. Extreme color shifts can often be seen. NASA originally developed dichroic glass for use in satellite mirrors and it was also used on re-entry tiles of the Space Shuttles. Sheets of glass have a special coating applied to it that involves vaporizing various metal oxides into a fine dust with an electro-gun. The oxide dust settles on and coats hot glass inside an airless vacuum chamber. Needless to say, because of of the complex, expensive procedure, only a handful of companies produce dichroic glass for artists to use for their designs.
 

Butterflies are believed to be the embodiment of spiritual growth because of their magical transformation from a caterpillar to a butterfly.  Red Coral is said to calm life, to restore harmony in the event of an emotional conflict.  Black Onyx is said to be a powerful protective stone and is used as a defense against negative thinking.  Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.

 
The FLYING FREE handmade butterfly necklace was carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio.  The necklace will come with two informational drop tags: one with the piece's name; the other lists the materials used in the necklace and the language of the stones and metals. It will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
