Creative April Showers

I love everything rain! I am truly a water baby, so whether it is the ocean, rivers, streams, lakes, ponds, rain, puddles and so on, I am constantly inspired by all things watery.  Many of my copper wire-work designs use the weather as my muse, so this month in April which is renowned for being very wet and rainy, I am sharing my rainy water inspired designs. Enjoy!


Rain Cloud Suncatcher

One of my most popular creations is this little hanging rain cloud.

Featuring five kinetic droplets of sparkly glass rain drops that sway gently with movement.

This design is the ‘mother’ rain cloud, the larger of my two cloud decorations.
