A stained glass suncatcher made using the Tiffany copper foil technique.
A butterfly made from lovely topaz aka yellow glass, topaz being the UK birthstone colour for November. The other sections of the butterfly are iridised textured clear glass to give it extra shimmer.
I've made the little matching coloured head in my hotpot kiln and added tiny dichroic chips for eyes.
I'm really pleased with my design of butterfly and also with the idea of making one for each month / birthstone.
This will make a wonderful present for yourself or for someone you love.
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've taken a little poetic licence with the colour as topaz is a more golden, darker shade than the yellow I've used .
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.
Please note : POSTAL CHARGES : . I always part-refund postage via Paypal where more than one piece is ordered to allow for combined postal charge. I do this as soon as I receive your order.
