Fused Glass Star Suncatchers

The cool, frosty green star suncatcher on the left makes me think of lovely lime sherbert, and its plum-colored companion on the right makes me think of red wine. These are only two of the many fused glass star suncatchers that glass artist and Esty seller Denise from dpholkdesigns has available, for the very affordable price of $8.00. It's not often that you can get such beautiful handmade art at such a low price!

As is often the case with Esty sellers, Denise is willing to customize orders, so if you don't see the color you want, or if you see the color but want it wrapped in copper instead of silver wire or vice versa, all you need to do is ask. These would make terrific little stocking stuffers, a prominent piece in a lovely gift basket, or even a "topper" for a beautifully wrapped package, that then becomes part of the gift itself. And since Denise is so flexible, you can match the color to the recipient's kitchen or sun room. The glass stars themselves (without the wiring) measure approximately three inches across -- which means they can also double as lovely Christmas ornaments.

Be sure and browse the rest of the shop -- click on "vases" and you'll be delighted by Denise's mini magnetic glass "pocket" vases, that can brighten up a refrigerator or filing cabinet. Naturally, they're also perfect stocking-stuffer size!
