I wanted to make a Summer tree sun catcher but I hit a snag trying to find a variety of transparent greens in chips. Beads are too smooth and uniform to make the irregular shapes I want.
So on to the next season. Spring was much easier to make.
Peridot leaves and red glass drop flowers and a few deep green Czech rondelles to add a bit of variety in the green.
Then on to Fall. Chips in autumn colors were probably the easiest to find.
Natural carnelian chips come in a nice variety of autumn colors.
Throw in some golden glass chips, citrine, some garnet and a touch of peridot and you have autumn in all of its glory.
I now have three of the four seasons and maybe some day I’ll have a summer Tree of Life sun catcher.
