This is a stained glass suncatcher made using the Tiffany copper foil technique.
It is a butterfly made from Peridot green glass, Peridot being the UK birthstone colour for August. The other sections of the butterfly are clear, iridescent glass to give it even more shine.
I've made the little glass green head in my hotpot kiln and added tiny dichroic chips for a face.
I'm really pleased with this new 2014 design of butterfly and also with the idea of making one for each month / birthstone.
It looks absolutely beautiful hanging in the window where it catches the light and would make a lovely ornament for any room.
This also makes a super 'bird-scarer' as it will help to stop birds flying into windows.
The suncatcher hangs from a little chain which is securely attached to the top of the butterfly, to its quirky curls.
This item is absolutely individual. I never make two pieces exactly the same, I always use slightly different colours and textures of glass.
It is 12cm wide and 9cm tall.
The 4th photo shows a full set of all 12 Birthstone butterflies I usually have several different months in stock.
The 5th photo shows a birthstone colour chart in case you want a different month. If so please contact me and i will make one for you in the appropriate colour.
I keep one in stock of each design. If you order a colour which is not in stock I will make one for you within 3 days.
I started making birthstone stars and straight away someone said they wanted butterflies - so this is one in a collection of Birthstone Butterflies, for each month / birthstone colour.
