Inspired by the Mad Hatters Tea Party, Tippy Teapots are fun and useful as serving pieces, coin or key holders, or whimsical decorations. In the garden, water or food in a cup or bowl draws butterflies and birds!
Wind and light play with Dazzlers sparkling everywhere they are hung, trees, shepherd hooks, or windows.
Tippy Teapots all start the same way, with an amazing teapot, a mug or plate found at a thrift shop or garage sale…
If they make me happy, I bring them back and start looking for the perfect partner pieces. It can take a long time to find the perfect pieces but I know them when I see them!
Fortunately, I have a pretty good supply of pieces to choose from but I ‘m always on the lookout for more!
All possible perfect pieces are put in a box until I decide it’s Tippy Teapot time!
Then I mix and match until the tower feels just right, take a photo and begin assembly.
Dazzlers are more involved that you might think!
We start by scoring and snapping mirrors into a variety of shapes.
Then begin to attach mirrors to the lines which have been precut to the perfect length…
After the mirrors are attached, we go to our bead boxes (we have lots of beads and gems!)
And begin the decoration, affixing or using a slightly different process to string stone and glass beads. We also make seasonal pieces ~ each dazzler is unique and will brighten your day with sparkles and color! Dazzlers are reasonably priced, come in many lengths and colors and are available exclusively at The Shoppes!
