6 piece honeycomb and bee sun catcher

6 piece honeycomb and bee sun catcher

Handmade with love in Wisconsin 💙 with 60/40 & 50/50 tin/lead solder, copper foil, stained glass, and tinned wire.


As stated above, solder has lead. This is standard in the industry. Wash your hands after touching. Do not let children handle the pieces. If requesting a custom piece, you can ask for lead-free solder (note: it is much more expensive than regular solder and will increase the price of your custom piece).


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.

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.

Note that this is just the work that goes into making each piece- this does not account for the cost of solder, wire, flux, cleaning supplies, or anything else.

When an item is sold, Etsy charges me three fees- a listing fee, a closing fee, and a credit card transaction fee. it takes me time to package & ship everything. 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.

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 :).
