A suncatcher inspired by two of the brave Hobbits of the Shire, the Ringbearers Frodo and Sam in The Lord of the Rings. The suncatcher is handmade from beveled glass, which catches the light when placed in sunlight, and clear , yellow and green stained glass which I have handpainted and fired to an enamel finish.

The central motif is a bright variegated orange sunflower, accented with a brown glass center and green glass leaves. To me, this sunflower symbolizes the brightness of their spirits in dark places. Sunflowers are beautiful, while also nourishing. Their stalks grow thick and strong, and their roots hold to the earth with all their strength. I often find the stalks in our garden still standing, even after the hardest winters.

The bright sunflower is flanked on top and bottom by the Hobbit doors of Sam and Frodo, in bright yellow and green. (P.S. Did you know that after Sam and Rosie married, they moved into Bag End with Frodo until he left for the Undying Lands?)

There is an option to include a removable "One Ring" and/or removeable silver Mallorn Nut (inspired by the small nut gifted to Sam by Galadriel, which he used to plant a new Party Tree after the Scouring of the Shire - the only Mallorn between the mountains and the sea). They can be attached with a small clasp or discretely removed as you wish. Select "no additions" or "with One Ring and Mallorn Nut" when making your selection.

* If the "with One Ring and Mallorn Nut" is not visible as an option when you order please email or use my contact page to request the addition to your order if you wish!

I am a huge fan of the books and films, so great care was taken in interpreting this design into stained glass.

“It would be the death of you to come with me, Sam," said Frodo, "and I could not have borne that."
"Not as certain as being left behind," said Sam.
"But I am going to Mordor."
"I know that well enough, Mr. Frodo. Of course you are. And I'm coming with you.”
- The Fellowship of the Ring

“Come, Mr. Frodo!' he cried. 'I can't carry it for you, but I can carry you and it as well. So up you get! Come on, Mr. Frodo dear! Sam will give you a ride. Just tell him where to go, and he'll go.”
