This listing is for 3 tiny glass fireflies on stainless steel wire. These could be used as a plant pokers or miniature garden decoration: these mini fireflies would be a magical addition to your fairy garden or look cute simply stuck into a potted plant. These are handmade by me using Italian glass and stainless steel wire. These miniature fire flies are slightly over 1/4" and it is just about 3/8" from head to tail. The butt is made with glow glass and it will actually glow in the dark! It needs to be activated in sunlight or with a light bulb. See the last photo - it glows quite brightly! This last photo is me carrying my treasures back into the house after photographing them outside. They were activated in the sunlight for maybe 30 minutes and already were glowing so bright!

These miniature fireflies are a lampwork glass fairy garden accessory handmade by me. They are fully annealed for strength and durability in a digital kiln. The wire is stainless steel and will not harm your plants like other metals could. It will be safe for outdoor use and would be great poked into a planter out on your porch or deck. The sun would activate the glow glass all day long and it would glow brightly at night while you are outside enjoying your porch in the evening.

It is also great for indoor use. This miniature firfly would be a magical terrarium decoration. If you do not live in an area with fireflies you need to travel to the Midwest during the Summer to be able to see these little bugs! There is nothing better than sitting on your porch and watching their little lights flit thru the trees and grasses. Kids catch fireflies in mason jars. My little glass fireflies would look similar in a terrarium.

The wire on these little fireflies are approximately 2 inches long. Convo me if you need it cut shorter. Even though this wire is very thin, it is also very hard and I use bolt cutters to clip the wire down.

These photos show the actual fireflies you will receive. Please convo me if you would like any variations in color, etc. I am happy to take custom orders.

I have just recentlly learned about fairy gardens from another customer and I am completely hooked! I went right to work to make one for me to have near my computer at work and I also put one outside in the yard.

My fairy garden accessories are safe for indoor or outdoor use. Please see my other listing for more miniature garden accesories:
