• Info on Dichroic Coatings

What is a dichroic coating? In a simple answer, it is a metal oxide applied to glass within a vacuum chamber. The number of applications will determine the color achieved. Metal oxides used in glass work is also an ancient process and was used starting in A.D. 240 until the mid 4th century when the knowledge of the process was lost.

Testimonials from Clients

I would like to state that I love OHGW jewelry!!! I have eight pair of earrings I've gotten over about five years and a matching necklace and earring set. I have bought more earrings to give as gifts and the recipients loved them. I have had many, many compliments about the colors and beauty of the pieces when I wear them. I plan on purchasing more from OHGW soon. Carolyn does beautiful work!!

I absolutely love the way Carolyn designs and her use of dichroic glass in her pieces. I love the way the colors sparkle and change. I try to buy for friend's special occasions, but I always find something new that I can't resist and have to have for myself. It's an addiction, really.

I love these earrings. I originally wanted them to wear with jeans, but I find that they go with a variety of fabric textures and colors, and can be dressed up or down. The workmanship is good. They are well put together and hang nicely, not too heavy. I've received compliments whenever I wear them. Many people are not aware of the properties of dichroic glass, which was developed for the space program. It is always a conversation starter. I'm a happy customer and will definitely be back to Old House Glass Works.

The artist who owns and creates jewelry for OHGW is awesome! Carolyn is very creative and designs beautifully detailed pieces of jewelry. I have purchased bracelets, pendants, and earrings from Carolyn; I always receive many compliments whenever I wear them. I also have purchased OHGW jewelry as gifts for others, and everyone who receives the jewelry is very appreciative and loves to wear it. I always look forward to purchasing new designs!

Each time I purchase a piece from Old House Glass Works, I find that it is done with love and thought of the individual that will be wearing it. Unique in itself, it is masterfully created by Carolyn Sturdivant's talent in seeing what beauty it is and will become, to be enjoyed for a lifetime. The pieces I own make me smile. I get lots of compliments and asked where did I get them? You won't be disapointed!

The moment I walked into Carolyn's studio, I felt my blood pressure lower. I was surrounded by layers of colored glass waiting to become pendants, bracelets and earrings. Her glass creations reflect her artistic flair and I am the proud owner of several of her pieces. Whatever art I am wearing from her line, people comment on and are amazed at the depth of colors and how each piece is independently different. Wearable art is the best!! Thank you Carolyn!!

If you are a lover of original art, especially in jewelry that is so well constructed in the smallest detail, I would encourage you to explore the world of Old House Glass Works. The originality of OHGW allows the wearer to step into a realm that is just for you and is lovely enough to be worn in a formal setting or with jeans and boots! People are capitivated by the beautiful reflected colors in my bracelet, as I am myself. Joy is what wearing a piece from OHGW brings to me and anyone to whom I have gifted one of their beautiful pieces of art. Best wishes and sparkle to all!
