The Original Dichroic Glass Jewelry by Rupama
Rupama has been working in glass for over 30 years. Working at Bullseye Glass Company at the start of the fusing frenzy and from there to Kroma Studios in Venice, CA. Developing the first line of dichroic glass jewelry in the 80's in addition to sculpture and mobiles, Rupama is always innovating, changing up the game. She has a dedication to quality, workmanship and timeless design that is evident in everything she designs.
Dichroic coatings are produced on a variety of glass materials. Originally developed as interference filters in scientific measuring and correction applications, they are a product of the technology call "thin film physics".
Up to 30 thin layers of metals and minerals are deposited on the surface of the glass allowing a narrow band of light to transmit as others are reflected. This is why as the glass changes direction, it also changes color. This process of coating the glass pieces is difficult and expensive with some colors running up to $10 a square inch. As an art material it is magical and unique.
