Part of the Gemstone Collection, Amethyst (February's birthstone) is an exquisite stained glass, 3-mirror kaleidoscope whose oil cell is filled with dichroic glass pieces and small baubles in varying shades of purple with a hint white and pink. The body is an opalescent purple stained glass finished with a dichroic glass jewel enhancement.
Easy to hold and breathtaking to view, the oil cell has square glass knobs on either side, affording the viewer an easy turning method. It is finished with Sue's signature patina she adds to all her soldering, resulting in a copper effect, on the eyepiece end, four little feet, and other adornments. This is truly a gem of a kaleidoscope.

"In my mind I see a sunset, light off the water or sea smoke. I can see it finished and I make it."
Sue Rioux has been pursuing artistic endeavors from a very young age. She started as a water-colorist, literally selling her paintings at local art shows starting at age nine. This experience taught her the critical color theory she uses to this day. She moved on to creating stained glass art of all kinds for many years. But she found her true niche designing and creating award-winning glass kaleidoscopes. Her creativity seems to have no bounds, with exquisite oil-cell kaleidoscopes, as well as her signature stained-glass barrel styles, all copper soldered and decorated with special glass details. She works from her home studio, surrounded by the nature that inspires her.
