A Puff of Summer

Admire a fleeting moment of summer any time with this real, hand-picked dandelion seed head preserved in a perfect, crystal clear sphere. This paperweight preserves the puff in clear resin at the moment before its parachute-like seeds fly away on the wind to start the flower's life cycle over again. The resin sphere displays the seed head's extraordinary natural architecture from every angle, and the subtle optical distortion of the resin imparts a sense of movement, making this an eye-catching accent for your in-box or mantlepiece. Great for the nature-lover, gardener, or lawn-care enthusiast who wants a trophy of a vanquished foe. Handmade in the UK.

      Comments about DANDELION PAPERWEIGHT:

      This is such a unique gift! It reminds me of my childhood -growing up in the country where lawns were not manicured and fields of countless dandelions were part of every summer. The orb is crystal clear and the dandelion head inside is huge and perfect.Glad we purchased!

        I was worried this might not be as beautiful as I'd imagined, but it is absolutely breathtaking. It's for my boss of 7 years at a corporate office who has everything. When I saw this, it was so magical and beautiful. She will just love it. THere is something so beautiful about dandelions... I want one for myself!

          This captured dandelion is ready to make the young and old think about the magic of making wishes. I taught kindergarten and every child had a beautiful idea about how the paperweight was made and their parents had ideas of their own!

          This pretty paperweight contains an actual dandelion perfectly preserved in resin. Would you display it on your desk?
