Stained Glass & Copper Wire Heart Sun Catcher




This whimsical play on a heart-shaped sun catcher is a unique gift for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, or birthday. I begin each handmade piece by starting with a copper wire framework; then, using a variety of materials and design elements, I fill this shape with colorful and distinctive features which I later solder together to form this imaginative version of a Valentine.

Although each handmade piece is unique, I have included the same design elements in all sun catchers: a 4-point starburst, copper flower cutout, 7 glass gems, 4 larger beads, and a variety of seed beads which are strung on curled copper wire.

Please be advised that this item is not a toy and therefore should be handled with the utmost care. It also contains lead materials, so consideration should be used when children are around. Although I use acrylic paint to cover all solder parts, normal care should be exercised when handling any item with this material.

Each heart shape is approximately 6 inches in height and 6.5 inches wide. Because of its small weight, it can be displayed on a window using a suction cup. (Suction cup not included.)

I am currently offering free USPS first class ground delivery on this item.
