Stained Glass Screen Door Frog Suncatcher




This frog suncatcher is crafted from a green glass nugget and black glass beads. I have soldered a 3/8" long post on the back of the frog and this slides through your screen door, or window, and fastens with a bullet clutch on the back of the screen.

The frog measures 1 5/8" long, by 1 7/8" wide, and comes mounted on a card as shown in my pictures.

Stained Glass Filigree Celtic Cross Pendant Necklace




I made this Celtic Cross stained glass pendant from Lt. Gray glass that has an iridescent finish on one side, so the color will change depending on the angle it's viewed from. When you look at it from the front it looks gray. I've embellished this piece with antiqued sterling silver plated filigree. I used lead-free solder and came to assemble this pendant.

This pendant measures 2 1/8" long from the top of the bail to the bottom of the pendant, and it measures 1 1/4" wide. The pendant will come with the 18" chain shown in the pictures.

Stained Glass and Copper Spider's Web Suncatcher






I made this suncatcher from 1/8" solid copper wire that I have hammered and left uncoated so it will darken with age. I added light blue, dark blue and turquoise frosted glass nuggets, faceted glass beads in blue, turquoise and clear iridescent, and a frosted turquoise spider. This piece hangs from turquoise ribbon. I assembled this piece with lead came and solder.

The suncatcher measured from the top of the copper ring to the bottom of the spider is 9 1/2" long, and it measures 4 3/4" wide.
