The mystical tree of life is masterfully rendered in stunning dichroic glass, celebrating the unity and inherent beauty of all things.
The resplendence of dichroic glasswork dates all the way to 4th century Rome, where it was prized for its ability to change color and its mesmerizing iridescent sheen.

In 2003 Johana Vazques was a single mom in Guadalajara struggling to support five children on her own when she heard about Dichrodreams -- a local enterprise which taught locals the art of dichroic glassmaking. Johana entered the training program and was soon making beautiful jewelry. She began earning a living wage, and her family's future changed forever.
Johana puts it this way: ""Through my hard and skilled work I have been able to give food, shelter, education, and medical attention to my five kids. Two of the older ones now work in the company. It has been a world of opportunities for all of us.""
Iridescent dichroic glass is made by combining crystal and metal at high heat, an art form that originated in ancient Rome. The artisans of Dichrodreams took the craft a step further by incorporating sterling silver into the mix in 1999, experimenting with new techniques. The result is an exceptional work of art. Today Dichrodreams jewelry is sold in 55 countries, making it a leader in the dichroic glass and silver jewelry industry.
I get a lot of compliments on it. Love it!!
I bought this pendant to go with my earrings and I couldn't be more happy. The colours are brilliant and I love the way they shine in the sun. Have received many compliments. I wear mine on a black leather necklace and it looks great.
I just received this piece in the mail today and it is beautiful. The multicolored nature of the piece will allow me to wear it with most anything. The large vale will accommodate most chains, I put mine on a black velvet cord and it is stunning. I would recommend it to all.
