LADYBUG ON WILLOW
Prism Patch's Canadian handmade stained glass suncatcher of a ladybug crawling up one of three leaves on the tip of a willow tree branch was inspired by a childhood memory. It makes a playful and energetic window home décor accent bringing nature inside year round. The raindrop shaped crystal at the tip of the bottom leaf and black round crystals attached to her back as the ladybugs spots, gives this design extra sparkle. She is nick named "Lady Luck" by many who appreciate her work in the garden, but who knows maybe she'll bring that luck inside your home as well! An appreciated gift for gardeners, nature lovers, Mother's Day or a child's birthday.
Materials: Stained glass, raindrop shaped crystal, black round glass rhinestone crystals, copper foil, twisted copper wire, black patina, wax.
Size: Approx. 22cm x 11cm (8.6" x 4.3")
I have fond memories of ladybugs dating back to my summer holidays as a young girl at my Grandmothers home in Tavistock, Ontario. I loved to have tea parties and play under the massive weeping willow tree in her yard. Despite the heat of the hottest summer days there was always a breeze under that tree, moving the branches in a sweeping graceful dance, with at least one friendly ladybug crawling up a leaf on a low hanging tip to admire and play with.
Today ladybugs are still my friends but in a way I never imagined as a child. Today they are welcome friends in my garden to protect my plants from aphid damage and pollinate my flower and vegetable plants; as they move among flowers on the hunt for aphids, they move pollen too. I just love the double duty these little beauties preform - Lady Luck indeed!
