These Stardust Stud Earrings are created using Dichroic Glass. This special glass was developed by the space industry for window filters on space craft. It is created by depositing several very thin layers of rare metal oxides on the surface of a piece of glass. The particles are then bombarded with an intense electron beam in a high temperature vacuum chamber.
Dichroic‘ is defined as the property of exhibiting more than one colour when viewed from different angles. Dichroic glass possesses a similar effect that is witnessed in nature on insect wings, peacock and hummingbird feathers. When the dichroic glass is fired in the kiln, its reflective qualities are enhanced to make it sparkle and shine an increased amount. These Stardust Stud Earrings are a great addition to any jewelry collection. They glow as if they had their own light source within the glass.
These charming little Stardust Stud Earrings will accentuate your festive attire! These earrings have hypoallergenic (surgical steel or silver plated) stud findings and come in quite an array of colors. If a matching Stardust Pendant Necklace is desired, we will match the set as closely as possible as each piece is truly unique. Each pair of Stardust Stud Earrings comes gift boxed with an information card.
As these earrings are handmade, there may be slight differences between the item pictured and the ones you receive.
Please take note some colors are more active and can shift or display more colors than others.
We call this type of glass “Stardust” Glass because it reminds us of looking above at night into the universe and seeing the multitudes of stars sparkling across the sky.
