WELCOME

WELCOME TO ROSE COLORED GLASSES.  WE ARE SUSAN AND PETER MILSKY AND WE MAKE WIRE WRAPPED FUSED  DICHROIC GLASS JEWELRY AND ACCESSORIES.  SUSAN MAKES ALL OF THE GLASS BY COMBINING SEVERAL DIFFERENT GLASSES AND FUSING THEM IN A KILN TO 1700 DEGREES F.  THE PIECES ARE THEN CARVED, SHAPED 

AND FIRED A SECOND TIME TO SMOOTH THE EDGES.  PETER THEN DESIGNS AND WIRE WRAPS THE FINISHED PIECES IN STERLING OR GOLD FILLED WIRE TO CREATE ONE OF A KIND JEWELRY.  DICHROIC GLASS GETS ITS NAME BECAUSE IT HAS COLOR SHIFTS SO THAT TWO OR MORE COLORS MAY BE SEEN DEPENDING ON THE ANGLE OF LIGHT HITTING THE GLASS.   BY COMBINING SEVERAL GLASSES AN ALMOST INFINITE NUMBER OF EFFECTS CAN BE ACHIEVED.

WE HAVE INCLUDED PHOTOS OF SOME OF THE PIECES WE MAKE.  THE PHOTOS CAN ONLY GIVE AN IDEA OF THE BEAUTY OF DICHROIC GLASS AS IT DEPENDS UPON LIGHT AND SHIFTS IN COLOR TO GET A FULL APPRECIATION OF ITS BRILLIANCE.  ABOVE IS A PENDANT AND EARRING SET WRAPPED IN 14K GOLD FILLED WIRE AND TO THE RIGHT A TRI DROP NECKLACE ALSO WRAPPED IN GOLD FILLED WIRE

WE HAVE BEEN MAKING GLASS JEWELRY AND ACCESSORIES FOR ABOUT 13YEARS.  WE ARE FORMER MEMBERS OF THE ARTISANS' GUILD OF CAPE COD, VILLAGE CRAFTERS, AND PETER IS A MEMBER OF THE EASTHAM CULTURAL COUNCIL.  WE HAVE TAUGHT JEWELRY MAKING ON CRUISE SHIPS AND HAVE GIVEN CLASSES IN LIBRARIES AND SENIOR CENTERS ON CAPE COD.  PLEASE GET IN TOUCH WITH US IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN HAVING US TEACH A CLASS.
