From trash digger to bling slinger, AMA.

Nov 17, 2017

IDOL Light is an emerging design company exploring the properties of light, glass, and perception. We are located in Philadelphia and just launched our first line of interactive light-centric jewelry on Kickstarter. The jewelry is made from upcycled scientific and dichroic (bi-colored) glass that splits white light and projects colorful geometry onto the wearer and their surroundings.

The glass used to make this jewelry is traditionally found throughout the scientific community in fields like astronomy, engineering, and laser optics. It is in everyday objects like cameras and magnifying glasses, as well as far away places like spacecraft, satellites, and even the moon! The tolerances for this glass are extremelyhigh because the tools they go in are extremely precise. Any imperfection, even those not visible to the naked eye, can render the glass “useless” and it is disposed of. That’s where we come in!

Many think of light as white and objects as having color but in actuality we are swimming in an energetic spectrum of colored light. These modern day talismans are synchronized with vibrant energy and are a reminder of this colorful existence.
