Many of the distinctive kiln-formed glass spheres
that Dolores Barrett creates for
her unique jewelry collection
are made with dichroic glass.
This is glass that appears to be different colors
when viewed from different angles.
Other pieces are made using clear, black,
or colored glass fused with metallic foils.
Hints of gold leaf, silver luster, textured
or jewel-tone glass inserts peek out
of the characteristic holes serving to invite
the viewer in for a closer view.
These variously-shaped pieces are made with glass and
fused 24K gold foil with
transparent colored-glass interiors.
Shapes, patterns, colors and glass come together to
express this artist's unique vision.
