Stained Glass and Copper Country Garden Suncatcher

This suncatcher, or wall decor, is crafted from a hammered copper ring that I have heated with a torch to change the surface to all different colors. I sprayed a clear coating over the copper to preserve the colors. I used purple waterglass for the flower, amethyst faceted glass jewels for the flower buds, Czech glass olivine vitral leaves, different shades of green glass gems, and lead-free came for the picket fence. This piece was assembled with lead came and solder.

This suncatcher, or wall decor measures 4 7/8" in diameter and hangs from suede lace.
