Glass Fire Opals

Glass Fire Opal Necklaces by DJAjewels on Etsy

Many of my jewelry designs such as the one pictured here are made using glass fire opals.   Also known as Harlequin Glass Art, these are some of my favorite man-made stones!

Glass fire opals are handmade, so no two are exactly alike.  Each one has it own unique combination of color flashes.  Glass artisans make these glass gems using molten glass to which various metals are added producing the brilliant flashes of color inside them.

I found other jewelry designers on Etsy also using glass fire opals, so I put together a Treasury.  I hope you will check out my Glass Fire Opal Treasury!
