Deep Cobalt blue glass leaves are interwoven with icy clear natural and cultured sea glass along with black basalt stones. The highly defined details on the leaves are painted in black and fired into the rich blue glass. The smooth black stones were gathered off beaches from Door County Wisconsin off Lake Michigan. Basalt rocks cover most of the Great Lakes and are over a billion years old! It's no wonder they are worn so smooth.
The line I use to string the leaves is a special black filament made especially for outdoor use. Strands can be used indoors or out, but I recommend you bring them in during the freezing months.
The strands come in various lengths, and I'd be happy to customize to any length of your choice. Strands will be similar but may not be exactly the ones shown in these pictures; too many to photograph each individually.
About the glass leaves: each leaf is individually hand cut freehand from delicately stained or clear glass, hand painted in layers, kiln fired, and then carefully drilled under water in order to hang. I use the same methods and materials that have been used in painted stained glass art for centuries, but with a modern twist!
