These hand-pulled stringers of magenta dichroic glass have been encased in magenta pink Effetre Rubino Oro glass.Like my other dichro stringers, these are a great way to add the sparkle and flash of dichroic glass to your lampwork without the burning and scumming that often happens when dichro is worked in the flame.
These versatile stringers will add a whole new dimension to your lampwork. Because the dichro particles are fully encased, you can use the stringer as a surface decoration on your beads, as well as encasing them further in the bead, and the bright pink encasement opens up many more options for use as either surface or deep decoration.
These dichro stringers are made from many layers of magenta-blue dichro wrapped around a base of Effetre Rubino Oro, a luscious magenta pink glass, and then encased with 2 layers of Effetre Rubino Oro glass. Because Rubino has a strong tendency to reduce to a muddy color in the flame, a final encasing layer of Double Helix Zephyr, a COE 104 clear glass has also be added before pulling the glass into stringers ranging from 2-4mm in thickness that are loaded with sparkles.
These stringers are very labor intensive to make, and provide quite a challenge to keep the layers of dichro from burning before they are encased, but I think the end result is well worth it. This listing is for 0.3oz of magenta-blue dichroic encased in Rubino pink and clear stringers which generally is 4-6 9-9" stringers. The bead is shown only as an example of what you can do with this stringer. The bead itself is NOT part of this listing.
Due to a sharp increase in the price of Rubino glass, I am having to increase the price of these stringers. The ingredient in Rubino glass that gives it the gorgeous magenta pink color is gold, and as the price of gold has increased, so has the price of Rubino glass.
