I designed this suncatcher by finding a picture of a happy looking giraffe, just neck upwards.
I traced it and then enclosed it in a medallion of blue, gently textured glass, as an African safari sky.

I rejected the idea of making a full body giraffe as glass is fragile, thin glass legs are especially prone to snap and I don’t want anyone to find themselves with a 3 legged animal if it had a little slip.  So Sophie just a head in the sky was born.

The giraffe itself is made from my blotchiestgiraffe coloured glass, lots of streaks and smudges. Eyes are prettyflower beads which make the giraffe smile and hopefully, also, anyone looking at it.

Each piece of glass is individually cut, shaped then carefully wrapped in copper foil before all the pieces are soldered together to create the oval suncatcher. Once the pieces are all soldered together I add a ‘frame’ of twisted wire. This gives the suncatcher neatness and also strength.  I then solder on little wire rings for hanging.

The suncatcher hangs from a little silver chain which is securely attached to the wire rings at the top. I always supply a strong suction hook so it comes ready for you to hang. I attach the chain using split rings so you can replace it, maybe with a ribbon, quite easily.

It is 15cm x 11cm. excluding the length of the chain. 

Please note that no two of my suncatchers  are ever the same even to the same design.  I deliberately don’t keep a record of the types of glass used so it is pretty impossible for me to make an exact match and that is my intention. I like all my pieces to be unique and I always use different combinations of glass.  

Posted out Royal Mail first class with lots of padding to keep it safe on its journey to you.
