Alison MacVicar Dichroic Jewellery
Alison graduated from Glasgow School of Art in Jewellery Design and has refined the techniques of combining dichroic glass and fusing glass to produce stunning pendants and earring sets. No two pieces are ever identical, even if the same materials are used, as small changes in firing time or temperature will result in different colours, textures and finishes. Alison creates her beautiful handmade pendants in her studio in Stewarton, East Ayrshire, Scotland. Each pendant or set is presented in a black linen gift box and prices start from £20.

As featured in Knitting Magazine, Quick & Crafty Magazine, Simply Knitting and Let's Knit Magazine.
We also support Brenda Dayne's Cast-On: A podcast for knitters. Why not have a listen to the latest episode?
