This beautiful copper-foiled stained glass suncatcher was handmade by Tamara Goldsmith in her Portland, OR studio.
These magical hand silhouettes are delicately balanced to hold a single crystal briolette on the end of a jewelry chain. The solder lines on this piece have been given a black patina, and are waxed for a protective, shiny surface.
Hangs from the top with a lightweight blackened chain.
Measures about 8" wide, 6" tall and hangs from the top of the chain to the bottom; about 14" in total.
60/40 lead/tin solder was used and the border is lead came.
Lead is not dangerous to have in your home in an art-piece like this unless sanded, causing lead-dust to be airborne and inhaled or somehow ingested. However, it is always a good idea to wash your hands well after cleaning or handling the piece.
