This one of a kind idea was inspired by a customer who has hundreds of Zippos! When he saw our bolo ties made with dichroic glass, he knew exactly what he wanted. We got to work creating a Dichroic Glass Zippo Lighter that looked just like our bolos.
First we fused the glass. Next we cut out a shape in the dichroic that mirrored the silhouette of the front of the Zippo. After we created a good match to the shape, we then sliced the glass cab across where the lighter was going to open. With a seamless split in the patterns, the top and bottom of the lighter came together perfectly. We polished and beveled the glass on all sides. The final step was to set onto the face of the lighter with epoxy. And then, a new product was born…A one of a kind dichroic glass zippo lighter!
These lighters are durable, fashionable, fun and functional. We create them in a palette of either warm or cool colors. Patterned collages with the amazing metallic effects that will light up your life. Magnetic stands and plastic display flames are included with each lighter purchase. Making these a great piece of art to store on the mantle of your fireplace or next to the BBQ for and easy light in the wind. Please call or email us for current dichroic zippo photos.
