Things are not as they seem

You just never know what is going to happen when you open the kiln. I had used very similar dichroic glass for the wings of the dragonfly. Yet, when it was fused, they were very different. A lesson learned from this things are not exactly what they seem. This has happened to me before with some Bullseye striker glass. One color before it is fused and a vibrant pink when the kiln is opened. 
 The dragonfly is a bit over 7 1/2 inches in diameter. Depending upon how you hold the piece, the colors vary. They really do change as from the first to the second photograph.

These earrings will be going back into the kiln for a second firing along with a pendant. Wonder what will happen the second time around?
