Stained Glass and Copper Country Garden Suncatcher

Country Garden Suncatcher
This suncatcher, or wall decor, is crafted from 3/8" heat treated copper tube, (I heat the copper with a torch to change the surface to all different colors). I clear coat the copper to preserve the colors. I used lavender glass for the flowers and olive colored glass for the leaves. The glass I used for the ground is green, purple and blue swirled together. I used light green cat's eye glass nuggets for added decoration and because they look like grass. The spider's web is decorated with three clear iridescent faceted glass beads to make it look like it has dew drops hanging from it.

This piece measures 9 1/2" in diameter.
