For almost 30 years (yikes!) I’ve been making small stained glass suncatchers with pressed flowers. These have always been very popular in the stores and craft shows I’ve sold at. Yet for some reason I’ve never put them up on Etsy – until now 🙂
They are made with a 2″ square clear beveled glass with a piece of pretty colored stained glass behind it. The real pressed flowers are arranged between the two layers of glass and fully soldered around the edges. I choose a variety of flowers which are thin but pretty: larkspur, delphinium, verbena, baby’s breath, baby marigold and a few others that give my work color and texture.
Years ago I made 80 of these for my own wedding favors; all last minute of course, staying up until 2 am two nights before my wedding to get them all done! It was worth it as everyone enjoyed them so much. In fact, I’ll visit people’s homes and still see them hanging in their house and looking great – 22 years later!
Yes, real flowers do fade over time but it seems to add to their vintage look and doesn’t detract from their beauty.
If you’d like to check them out, click here to view. I’m selling them either individually ($10 with free shipping) or in groups of three ($25 with free shipping). If you’d like a particular combination of flower and color I can do that for you! You can contact me through my contact page or via Etsy. Thanks and Enjoy!
