I was inspired to make this after seeing a witch ball in the "moorland cottage" room of the Castle Museum in York. The museum has myriad recreations of domesticity throughout the ages. Every object had at least one use, if not three or four. But there in the window-- something mysterious and glamorous, even! A glass ball, decoupaged with roses. I, like many unseelies before me, was certainly mesmerized by it. This is my take on the witch ball-- made with love and mindfulness.

What happy customers have said about this witchball:

"I have this hanging on a living room window. It catches the afternoon sun, and shoots tiny shafts of red around the room."

"This little witch ball hangs from the beam over the fireplace, it is so dainty, lots of detail very pretty."

All my jewellery is made by hand by my partner Mike and myself in a converted 18th century naval school on the wild North coast of Scotland. All pieces come gift wrapped.
