Kiln Size Needed:  Any

Equipment/Machinery Needed:  Ring Saw / Grinder

     Introducing the next sensation in Dichroic Jewelry! Kate MacLeod will lead you through creating amazing jewelry pieces that are… wait for it… kiln formed concentric circles! Seriously? That can be done in a kiln? Here-to-fore reserved for glass blowers and torch workers, the layering of color, and not only color, but Dichroic color, in concentric circles is perfected, explained, and made simple. The handouts alone are worth a gold mine as Kate throughly explains the properties of dichroic glass with diagrams, charts and color properties. Not only that, Kate has perfected the use of Dichroic scrap! Make the most out of every square centimeter of your Dichro. This is the next big seller in Dichroic jewelry. Whether you simply tether it as a pendant, wire wrap it, or use a stunning bracelet finding, the glass process will take your work to the next level. Kate’s formulae are included in the extensive PDF’s as dichroic-cake stack charts, along with firing schedules, and a comprehensive explanation of the CBS Dichroic color bar. Are you ready to take the next step into Dichroic Jewelry? This is it, no if’s, and’s, or but’s.

This process does require a tile saw or good ring saw. A red Taurus saw will work with a super slicer blade. A kiln with at least a 6" shelf is required. Pieces are flat so a deep kiln is not required. All other processes are completed with your basic studio essentials.
