Kitras Art Glass still honors the old world tradition of glass blowing with studios in Canada. The 6" Birthstone Ball ornament is typical of their design, featuring tree trunk style threads inside the ball in a sideways pattern. Birthstone Balls take the amazing colors of the monthly birthstones along with highlight colors and turn them into an amazing glass creation. Sunlight brings these balls to life, we just love showing them off in a gorgeous niche window! The blown glass loop for hanging gives you a way to thread the ball with strong fishing line or ribbon. We suggest using a strong, sturdy hanger from ceiling or wall bracket. Each ball comes gift tagged and boxed. Honor the individual born in January with a treasure to enjoy for the entire year, each one comes tagged with the unique characteristics of someone born in that month.
