Pressed Glass Medallion Sun Catchers

I found these cool pressed glass medallions that are made in Germany and had to have them.  As usual, I had no idea what I would do with them when I bought them.  My inspiration ended up being a metal trellis that I saw in someones front yard.

I chose small glass cabochons as accents,
and cut a length of wire for each medallion.

Then I gently shaped the wire around the medallions and cabochons.

I wrapped each medallion and cab edge in a strip of copper foil,and soldered them in place.


These were commission pieces for a customer who gives them as gifts in colors that match the recipients decor color scheme.  Cool idea!
