All Things Sparkly

  • Geometric Rain Storm Mobile

    An abstract copper hanging mobile featuring dangling rectangle frames with cobalt blue glass rain droplets. The geometric copper wire frames have been subtly distressed and weathered with a dark patina finish. This metal mobile is reminiscent of autumn rainfall, when stormy rain clouds gather over woodland and rain drops start to pitter patter as they fall off tree branches onto the ground below.  The water droplets hang at random lengths creating a pitter patter effect of falling rain. Hang this geometric mobile in your home interior for year round blue highlights as the sun catches the glass beads. We love the British weather here at Earth Balance Craft and enjoy creating designs that capture the essence of the elements.

  • Rainy Days Suncatcher

    A copper rain cloud hanging decoration with seven rain droplets made up of hammered wire paddles and glass beaded droplets. Each droplet features two kinetic aspects; at the top the droplets dangle gently and at the bottom of each droplet the beads swing softly. This creates a beautiful whimsical ‘wibbly wobbly’ movement which catches the light with flashes of bright sunshine.  The opalite beads become illuminated in both natural day light and incandescent light.  Inspired by rainy days with the comforting pitter patter sound of rain drops falling to the ground.  I’ve fond memories of many summer days spent watching the garden from indoors with my nose up against the window listening to the rain.
