The AUTUMN COLLECTION - The Big and Bold Look !

A large Dichroic turquoise/copper donut pendant is the strong focal point of this Autumized necklace. The necklace also has two shades of teardrop glass pearls surrounding copper coin beads with mystic topaz and copper AB Crystals.
This 21 inch necklace has an oversized copper circle Toggle clasp. Copper French Hook 2 inch dangle earrings with mystic topaz Crystals and a copper ball complete the set.

Dichroic glass is glass containing multiple micro-layers of metal oxides which give the glass dichroic optical properties. The invention of dichroic glass is often erroneously attributed to NASA and its contractors, who developed it for use in dichroic filters. However, Dichroic glass dates back to at least the 4th century AD as seen in the Lycurgus cup. Dichroic glass is an example of thin-film optics.

AB Crystals are also used in this set.
