Handmade Blown Glass Baubles

Mix of Colours Glass Ball

This lovely glass ball from Gifted in Design, is based on the Medieval Witch Ball. Traditionally, this is hung at the window where any potential trespassing evil spirits would be mesmerized by the reflective beauty of the ball.

Legend suggests the evil spirit would either be absorbed by the ball & trapped forever, or be scared away by the sight of its own reflection.

The hand blown balls on the site were crafted from a lead glass crystal mix. A fragrance bubble was added within the ball. Try dropping some oil into this bubble & hanging it up in a sunny window. Enjoy the beautiful reflections and the lovely aroma as the oil heats up!

Gifted in Design showcases inspirational gifts from British artists.
