Quartz Mushroom Sun Catcher
Handcrafted copper art made by me at home in my studio from the finest raw materials that mother nature has to offer. Sustainably harvested and crafted into fashionable heirloom quality works of art.
A whimsical one of a kind sun catcher to bring some magic into your life. This is handcrafted with a handblown piece of glass, clay, real lavender, twigs, tiny leaves and a hexagon Quartz crystal. I start by sculpting the mushrooms around the glass and that becomes the center piece. I then use real twigs and other foliage to build around it. After it is built to my liking I put in my tank to be electroformed with copper for 2 days. The process of building one of these takes about a week from start to finish. The copper is given a nice vintage patina to pull out all of the little details and then it is sealed to help preserve the finish.
I love to hang my sun catchers in an east facing window to catch the sun as it rises in the morning. The crystals hanging below will catch the light and spray rainbows across the room.
From top to bottom the sun catcher measures about 9 1/2 inches and is about 3 inches wide.
A piece of suede is attached to the top for hanging purpouses.
Clear Quartz Properties:
Clear Quartz is excellent for amplifying the energies of other stones or to enhance groups of stones. Clear Quartz produces a force field of healing negative ions while clearing the surroundings of positive ions, protecting the aura. It dispels static electricity, and cancels out the harmful effects of radiation and radioactivity. Clear Quartz brings strength and clarity to the intellect, aiding concentration and memory retention, and filtering out distractions.
