14 Picasso-style dichroic glass pendants
This is a group shot of all the pieces. I got 14 finished pendants out of the 5 pieces I fired - here are those 5 pieces, fresh out of the kiln from firing:

From here, I engraved them with the Dremel, with a lot of emphasis on Zentangle patterns:

Next, I cold-worked them, using the ring saw to cut them into various shapes for pendants, and grinding away rough edges. Then they were ready for firepolishing;

This was the large piece of glass I fired, with the beautiful blues, purples, greens, and pinks:

As with all dichroic glass, the photos just can't do these pieces justice - they are so incredibly beautiful!
Such a fun (but incredibly labor intensive) technique - can't wait to make some more!
