Bella! Feline Votives in Pink and Blue

Bella! You can’t miss those round eyes, curling tail and ebony black fur! I had the idea for Bella! and first used her on the tote bag, but knew I’d use her silhouette on many other things. As I sorted through my repurposed condiment jars with ideas for votives, I could picture her on these […]

Buy 2 for $25.00 on Many Gift Items

Each item on my website has $5.00 added into the posted price to cover average shipping. But shipping two of most items often costs no more than shipping one. I always give a discount at in-person sales at shows and in my shop, and I try to offer discounts to customers who don’t live close […]

Woodland Sunflowers Votive or Lamp

“Woodland Sunflowers” is different from all my other votives, and it’s because of an idea I had long before I began making these. This glass votive is etched inside by hand and finished with a handpainted design of woodland sunflowers based on one of my photos. It’s made from a repurposed glass roasted red pepper […]

Colorful Kitties Feline Votive

This votive is made with a repurposed pickle jar. I etched the inside, not sure what design I’d use on the outside, but certain I’d add color and pattern to all the workings in the glass. At first I thought it would be flowers, but then I remembered this colorful design that I’d been intending […]

Red Roses Votive for Valentine’s Day

I’d been planning a line of flower-themed votives and knew this painting would be on one of them, it only depended which jar I would use. I chose one where I could wrap the whole painting around, and you could turn it to find your favorite part of the painting. I etched the entire inside […]

Angel Daisies Votive

A photo from a warm and sunny June morning. Years ago I gave my sister some seeds and plants from my Shasta daisies and she grew them into a huge daisy garden. “Angel Daisies” features a whitewashed angel she had placed in the garden of daisies and she looks right at home. This glass votive […]

More New Feline Votives

Last week when I made five new votives trying out a few new techniques I had plenty more ideas but ran out of the label material I use to print the images I burnish onto the jars. I found an alternate material to try but didn’t care for it. The labels are available again and […]

New Feline and Flower Votives

Some more of my Star of Wonder votives, and then some new ones! Since we’re not recycling glass anymore I’m still using glass jars from condiments and pickles and such for feline and flower votives. They are etched inside and have either a vinyl label I’ve printed or hand-painting on the outside. Because I’m largely […]
