"Midnight Jewel" is made from one of my organically grown gourds. It's hand carved using traditional old fashioned tools and the design meticulously painted to make it pop against the black background. The carving has been carefully painted black for contrast. The design features a metallic red 8 pointed star (woodburned) with carving and a ring of red, pink and purple sparkling stones around the opening. The house is finished with 2 coats of UV marine spar varnish. There are drainage holes on the bottom and a sturdy leather strap for hanging. The seeds have been removed and the inside has been left natural for the birds.
This would make a lovely one of a kind gift for a birthday, housewarming or holidays.
Approx. 10 1/2" tall, not including stem and 8 1/2" diameter.
