the Glinda convex mirror

In All by Mark Evans

The Glinda convex mirror is made from a silvered round frame that has spokes of silver leafed cones topped with a sphere of clear crystal. Each spoke is studded with small glass cabochons. The frame is circled with large crystal spheres. To me, this is a fairy tale inspired mirror!

I’ve updated Glinda. I’ve added beautiful hematite spheres between the spokes and lightly champagne colored jewels to the inner frame. More is more as someone said….

The Glinda convex mirror is about 21 inches in diameter. It is currently in my studio pending being shipped to one of my showrooms.

Jewelry for walls!

Of course, the Glinda convex mirror is a tribute to the character that L. Frank Baum created for the first of his Oz books, The Wizard of Oz. Glinda is the good witch of the South and embodies all the pretty, fairy tale goodness of a perfectly perfect sorceress. Who can forget the dazzle that Billie Burke displayed as Glinda in the classic 1939 movie for the Wizard of Oz?
