This lovely glass rose just exudes royalty and elegance. The intricate blossom features a deep purple shade, which is enhanced by 24K gold trimmings. This piece is best placed out in the garden as the sunlight showcases the colors beautifully. The leaves and stem are made of opaque green glass, and I threw in a couple of thorns in there, too. The blossom measures approximately 1 1/2'' in diameter, while the stem measures 7'' long. As with my other glass creations, this piece is kiln-annealed in my studio.
