This sweet beveled copper-foiled stained glass suncatcher was handmade by Tamara Goldsmith in her Portland, OR studio. The flowers were gathered and pressed by the artist, and sandwiched between a thick beveled glass and a softly textured / tinted back-piece, for optimal sparkle and translucency! The sunrays capture hues of orange and red. Flowers are dried for a minimum of 6 weeks, and they are sealed very well to prevent trapped moisture and the formation of mold. These adorable pieces are the perfect size for gift-giving and can be made in a wide array of colorways. Soldered to an 8” steel chain, and each jumpring has been soldered into an enclosed ring for sturdiness. The solder lines and lead came frame on this piece have been given a black patina, and are waxed and buffed for a protective, shiny surface.
The glass piece measures about 6" long, 3” wide.
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 or 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.
