Weaving by the Zapotec Indians is done by every family member, from the tending of sheep by the young boys, to the women who card, soon, and dye the wool, and the men who actually weave it! I had to pick up several of their beautiful weavings while out in Texas this weekend. I also found a lot of gorgeous feathers and had to showcase them in a #copperandtorch copper vase! #weaving #handmade

Side view of the #terrarium necklaces…did you know that they hold water? You can actually plant a tiny seed and hang it in the sun to watch it grow! When you wear it and bend down, gravity and the design I created makes it swing out and not tip over! #design #copperandtorch #handmade #etsy

Did I mention that all of my styles- as in the whole product line,  are now available in COPPER?! That’s right! I haven’t updated all the products on the website yet, but I’m getting there! You are always welcome to place an order and then send me a message if you’d rather have copper instead of black! #copperandtorch #handmade #terrarium #etsy #copperandtorchdotcom #copperandtorchgoescopper

It’s all done by hand- hand cut, hand foiled, hand soldered, hand built, hand painted…my favorite tool of my trade is my hands. They look rough- not gonna lie. #bestjobever #handmade #makersgonnamake #glassartist #terrarium
