House your small air plants in the beautiful hanging Diamond Terrarium. Lightweight in design, the stained glass terrarium will glint in the sunlight in the window while keeping your air plants happily suspended.
Measuring approximately 2-1/2″ wide by 6″ in height, we recommend hanging the petite terrarium from a secure cup hook or nail above the window. This ensures the safety of your plants as well as the glass art.
How’s It Made?
Handcrafted from art glass, we create the Diamond Terrarium using multiple steps. First, we cut the shapes for each of the terrarium sides from clear glass. Next, we shape the sides to remove any uneven edges. Once the sides are squared, we clean and dry the pieces.
We wrap each of the pieces in a copper foil. Solder doesn’t stick to the glass itself, so the copper acts as the medium to hold the pieces together. The solder adheres to the copper foil on the edge of the two pieces, and this holds the pieces together. We use a lead-free solder for safety; for you, and for your plants.
Once soldered, we add a patina to the solder to chemically oxidize the solder. This turns all of the solder lines black. Lastly, we add a wax to polish the glass and protect the solder.
The final touch is adding a length of chain to hang the Diamond Terrarium from.
