Gemstones and glass - in a suncatcher! This combination has been a favorite of mine all year - as an avowed rockhound and gem hunter, it makes sense. That is a red jasper cabochon gemstone in the center which I wrapped with lead came and then soldered onto a beautiful handmade stained glass flower. This yellow and orange flower measures about 6" wide. It is suspended from a stainless steel jewelry-grade paper clip chain.
I make every stained glass piece in my shop. It's traditional, Tiffany-method stained glass. I'm an artist who's been creating stained glass artwork for nearly 20 years, from the Pacific Northwest.
While my artwork can be used outside, it is NOT recommended, for the beauty and longevity of the artwork.
If you do hang your art outside, I recommend: - use it under cover from the elements - keep it out of the sun and rain/snow - bring it inside during extremely hot or cold temperatures
