This wall piece is made of 4 dichroic pendants that have been tack fused.

Thank you!  It is made from COE 96 Fusing glass

I took black squares for the base, cut slivers of dichroic glass and stacked them on the base.  Then tack fused them together to make pendants.

I bonded the silver plated bails to the back on the top and bottom edge.  Then I used silver wire to wire them together.  Viola.  EASY to do.
