This Yellow Rose bud was commissioned as a Christmas present. The design was originally a square panel which we placed into a 10 inch circular panel surrounded by a soft flexible brass U channel. Eventually our client returned the panel so we could attach a fine silver chain for hanging in the window of their home.
The following photo shows the beginning of the panels construction.

We recently redesigned our Garden Dragonfly by raising the wings rather than leaving them flat. The rods we use for these garden pieces are approximately 18 inches in length. The Dragonfly measures about 4 inches high x 6 inches wide. We have many varieties of glass for their wings including iridescents.
The following picture shows are large Garden Butterflies, Lady Bug and on a shorter rod the Garden Frog. We do make the butterflies in a smaller size and a larger size for the frog.

Our Boxed Alberta Roses have just recently travelled to Australia and Nova Scotia. The Alberta Rose is the official flower of the Province of Alberta and they come boxed as shown complete with a suction cup for hanging. They are a wonderful souvenir gift idea to take to friends and relatives wherever they live
We use Spectrum # 609.8 Clear swirled with Pink and White Wispy for the roses and various greens for leaves and yellows for the center of the roses. The roses measure approximately 3 inches wide by 4 inches high.
In January 2017 we were asked to make a hummingbird oval to be given as a gift in June 2017 for the Most Worthy Grand Matron of the Order of The East Star at its Grand Chapter 2017 meeting in Calgary, Alberta. This oval measured approximately 6 inches wide by 8 inches high.
This oval ended up going to Florida USA.

Early this year we made this Butterfly Trio Cluster. The top red butterfly was made with Bullseye #1311 Crimson Red, for the bottom left we used a Bullseye # 3346-30 Cranberry Pink, Azure Blue, and for the one in the middle a heads & tails piece of Youghiogheny. This suncatcher measures approximately 6 inches wide by 8 inches high.
