This happy, green, mossy lil' mobile will bring great happiness to any room! The monarch adds an extra splash of color and joy.

I made the stained glass leaves myself, attached them to a stick from my yard, and added the rest of the decorations to bring this beauty to life.

⭐WHY DOES THIS COST WHAT IT DOES?⭐
If you have never made stained glass before, it is quite the process!!! I do everything by hand- I am not a machine- and I am a one-person shop. Even "simple" leaves take awhile.

First step: cut the glass. Grind to make everything to fit. The time this takes depends on the difficulty of the piece.

Second: wash all the glass to get grime off.

Third: clean each piece- both sides and all edges- with rubbing alcohol. Then, carefully apply copper foil tape around the edges. It has to be precise and symmetrical on each side. Burnish (push down) the foil.

Fourth: apply flux and then solder the back, sides, and front (and make sure the lines on the front are beaded, smooth, and look nice).

Fifth: clean everything with a flux neutralizer.

Sixth: apply polish/wax. Let it dry. Buff. If it's a mobile, assemble the pieces. If it's a plant stake, spray the stake with a clear coat.

Note that this is just the work that goes into making each piece- there is also the cost of the glass, solder, wire, flux, cleaning supplies, etc.

Also, when an item is sold, I'm charged transaction fees.

Lastly, glass is fragile (duh), so it takes awhile to make sure the order is packed in a way that will make it safely to its destination (10-15 min per order).

So please don't complain that the cost is too high. If the cost is too high, kindly learn how to do stained glass and make your own. Have a great day :).

notes
The leaves are made of stained glass and assembled with solder. Solder has lead in it; this is standard in the industry. Use good sense and wash your hands after handling. All stained glass pieces are polished and coated with wax to prevent oxidation.
