The hummingbird symbolizes the enjoyment of life and lightness of being. Those who have the hummingbird as a totem are invited to enjoy the sweetness of life, lift up negativity wherever it creeps in and express love more fully in their daily endeavors.
TINY POEMS FOR TINY BIRDS

I was intending to make a mobile with these fish but couldn't figure out how to bend wire strong enough to hold them. So, they will sell separately and if anyone wants both they can use 2 hooks. The aqua fish was quite a feat! The clear iridescent is a wind chime also.
Such a delight to make. The main glass in the man's gown was only made once a year by Uroboros for the Tiffany peacock lamp, so it was always rather rare. I loved it so I bought it years ago and saved it for something special. As it turned out Uroboros stopped producing this glass about 8 years ago! The rust background is hand poured antique glass, not often found any longer either. The circles ad purple in his gown are Bullseye glass and extremely expensive as the purple and fuschia are made with gold salts.
The piece still needs to be framed so I have not listed it yet. I'll enjoy having it awhile!
For years I have loved windows with small squares around the perimeter of the clear glass. You don't see them often any more. I have wanted to make them but could never figure out how to adhere them. Now I have found a way to do it with double sided clear tape, permitting one to remove them later down the road. For those who want to permanently adhere them to the glass, Loctite has come out with a glass glue that cures in 15 seconds ( maybe a few more). In an age when curtains are no longer in vogue these fused glass squares of my design really jazz up a room, throwing beautiful colors around the room and they are beautiful from the inside at night as they are iridescent and the outside. They are now for sale in my Etsy store in an array of beautiful colors. The glasses I fused in these first sets are among the most beautiful and expensive, purple and pink being made with gold salts.
