Stained Glass Celtic Spiral Triskele Pendant
I crafted this pendant out of blue stained glass that has an iridescent surface, so it changes color depending on the angle you view it from. I made this piece with lead-free solder and came.

Country Garden Suncatcher
This suncatcher, or wall decor, is crafted from 3/8" heat treated copper tube, (I heat the copper with a torch to change the surface to all different colors). I clear coat the copper to preserve the colors. I used lavender glass for the flowers and olive colored glass for the leaves. The glass I used for the ground is green, purple and blue swirled together. I used light green cat's eye glass nuggets for added decoration and because they look like grass. The spider's web is decorated with three clear iridescent faceted glass beads to make it look like it has dew drops hanging from it.
This piece measures 9 1/2" in diameter.
I crafted the morel mushrooms from amber and cream colored glass. The glass I used for the grass is textured. I've embellished this piece with a green cat's eye glass nugget, olive colored Czech glass leaves that have an iridescent finish, silver bead caps, and dark topaz AB Czech glass beads.
Suncatcher measures 6 1/2" tall by 4" wide.
