Amelia Art Glass Friendship Balls
These beautiful mouth blown art glass Friendship Balls are from Amelia Art Glass - the same company that make the gorgeous art glass Reed Diffuser Bottles. Traditionally Friendship Balls were made by glass blowers at the end of their shift, using left over glass from the days production. The balls of glass would then be given as small gifts to their family and friends.
These beautiful mouth blown glass baubles are hand made using traditional glass blowing techniques. They can be given at any time of year, but we think they'd be beautiful to hang on the Christmas tree too. Each ball measures 80mm so is a nice size to hang in a bright window. Each one is unique, so patterns and swirls in the glass will vary for each colour. There is a glass hanging loop is at the top of each ball, and this has been threaded with satin ribbon.
Please click on the images to see the various colours that are available, but please remember these are handmade - every one is unique with variations in the patterns and colours in the glass.
Each ball is presented in an Amelia Art Glass printed cardboard box (either white or grey with 2 open sides to show off the glass).
Purple, Teal Lime - swirled patterns of coloured glass on a transparent ball - very pretty.
