This fabulous miniature kaleidoscope is the perfect one-of-a-kind gift for a kaleidoscope collector or for an adult that already has everything & is hard to buy for!

This mini kaleidoscope was made by me in my Credit River, Minnesota glass studio.

{ description }
The glass body is partially made up of a glass, that when melted & wound around the mandrel (what I made it on)... it not only gets really streaky, which I love, but it turns a multitude of colors (& never the same colors twice!) The blue part of the body is made of a beautiful glass that gives me a nice range of blues & greens (sometimes reds & purples) depending on how it’s worked in the flame. I’ve done a little bit of opal yellow scrollwork around the body where these two glasses meet.

This little kaleidoscope gets its ever changing patterns from little beads inside the end of the scope, like the little cardboard ones we had when we were kids! Look through the eye piece & turn the whole kaleidoscope, watch the little internal beads shift & the patterns change. Beautiful...so easy to get lost inside this piece.

{ measurements }
**images are enlarged for detail.

- the brass kaleidoscope body measures: 2 1/2" (from brass eye piece to end) x 1" (bead width)

- the lampwork glass portion measures: 40mm x 25mm

Remember that colors & intensity will vary from monitor to monitor. I've tried to represent my lampwork glass pieces as close to reality as possible on my monitor, but they may appear a shade lighter or darker than reality on yours.

{ about my beads & glass objects }
...all of my glass beads & objects are handmade by me, one at a time, in my Credit River, Minnesota glass studio, so no two are ever identical. I use torch, rods of glass and some really cool tools! :o) My beads are made of soft “soda lime” glass rods, mainly Italian Moretti and Vetrofond glasses & American glasses by Double Helix & CIM (Creation is Messy). After each bead is finished, they immediately go from flame to a digitally controlled kiln where they’re annealed for strength, durability & safety. I clean out all signs of bead release & look them over thoroughly for any flaws or cracks.
