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!

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

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!) Scrolling designs in silvered ivory & dots of blue. It has been lightly etched so it has a silky finish rather than a shiny finish you’d expect from glass.

Look through the eye piece & watch the colorful blue oil wand contents shift & change... twist the wand & get an even better explosion of colors & shapes! Psychedelic!! :o)

**images are enlarged for detail.
***the last photo shows scale of kaleidoscope w/ child. This is not the kaleidoscope in the listing.


{ measurements }
- the brass kaleidoscope body measures: 3 1/4" (from brass eye piece to end w/ colored wand) x 1" (bead width)

- the lampwork glass portion measures: 1.65" x 1" (43mm x 25mm)

- the color oil wand is: 6 1/4" long.

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 a Carlisle Mini CC torch w/ propane & 2 oxygen concentrators 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.

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.
