LGBT Mini-Star Ornaments  are COLORFUL CABOCHONS. Made to order will ship within 3-4 business days. They are created by layering clear glass frit with small bits of multi-colored frit glass into a mold to create a gradient rainbow effect, and then melting to 1425 degrees in a glass kiln.

Round cabochon is approx. 1.5″ x 1.5. Oblong cabochon is 1.5 ” in long x 1″ wide with approx. Both have approximately a 3/8″ hole.

THIS HANDCRAFTED BEAD is great to use in a necklace, pendant, earrings or other crafty creation. Place it on a beautiful ribbon and it will make a perfect gift for your favorite ART teacher. It is silky and smooth to the touch on one side and delicately textured on the other side…great for use as a tactile meditation tool to counteract any worries. Great for wire-wrapping!

GIFT CERTIFICATES are also available in any denomination – Please contact me to request one.

THIS GLASS BEAD IS KILN ANNEALED for strength and durability, but, it is still fragile if dropped on a hard surface.

Cindi Hardwicke – Owner/Designer

As a child, I loved to daydream while sitting in the shade of a Sycamore Tree on my grandfather’s farm in Virginia. I watched colorful sunsets, marveled at Rainbows, and watched the leaves change colors as butterflies & birds danced in the air. As an adult, I imagine myself there, fantasizing new characters and creations for you…

I have this inner drive to keep my hands busy
. . .So I Create.

In the Shade of the Sycamore Tree

Jewelry in Clay and Glass, Glass Stars for Home Decor and Weddings, Glass Mandalas, Clay and Glass Creatures: Dragons, Elves, Mermaid, Fish, Birds, etc.

All of my creations are all designed & individually handcrafted by me. I like to keep my hands busy & love to work with Glass & Clay.

I find Magic in the way glass magically transforms light & color into a visual dance an in the way that clay can easily be manipulated into Sculptural Forms and Clay Jewelry.

I share my studio with my son, Justin Pettingell, who creates glass pendants and glass fantasy creatures. Maybe, you’ll find few creations of his, in my shop, too.

I hope that you enjoy looking as much as I love creating. Maybe you’ll give one of my creations as ‘forever home’. Visit my Zibbet Shop to see all my creations!
