Green and Gold Jewelry
Green Bay Fans get your Green and Gold Jewelry here!
Green Bay Packers fans will love this new line of jewelry by Coleen Goralski! Each piece is handcrafted by Coleen in her WI studio. The new Green and Gold jewelry line often includes dichroic glass to add a bit of shimmer to your Packers fan look. Each piece is hand signed by Coleen on the back of the pendant or earring. Pieces for the male or female Packers fan in your life. Great gift idea!
Each piece is hand cut from sheets of glass and then fired in a kiln for up to 8 hours reaching temperatures of close to 1500 degrees. Coleen also uses lampwork techniques which includes cutting thin strips of glass and using a large flame to pull the glass into shapes or thinner strips and then applying it to her design to be fused in the kiln. Packers fans can show their pride with unique handcrafted art pieces! These one of a kind handcrafted fused pieces are suitable for every day wear not just game day!
Dichroic glass is a product of the space program and is now available to artists and those in the optics or security industries. From my article about my other dichroic and fused pieces –
“Dichroic glass today originates from the space program and we can thank ‘Thin Film Physics’ for this beautiful and functional product. It is a costly process that involves cleaning the glass to the molecular level and coated with thin films of elements such as titanium, magnesium, zirconium and many others. The elements are then vacuum deposited onto the glass. Often up to 30 layers are used and the elements used are what give each sheet the colors in the final product. The time required in the vacuum vessel can take up to two and half hours. Other uses for dichroic glass have been used in the face shields for space suits, optical and security industries.”
