The Feeling Groovy kaleidoscope necklace has plumeria blooms on the outside and colorful beach glass inside a handmade, 1 3/16-inch length. The Love Bird kaleidoscope necklace features a carefully carved Love Bird in a tropical setting and also uses frosted beach glass inside its nearly 2-inch length. Both have 24-inch sterling silver chains.

Unique Kaleidoscopes

For a unique gift, check out Gourd Gifts by Rhonda James. Using a real gourd, the exterior is hand painted, has a brass eyepiece and sits on a cherry-wood base. We also have Excellerations, a wooden, refillable piece that acts as a science project to show the inner workings of a kaleidoscope.

Stained Glass or Wood?

Kathleen Hunt and Joanne Jacobs create lovely works of stained-glass art, and Peggy and Steve Kittelson continue their beautiful stained-glass series as well. Meanwhile, Luc and Sallie Durette offer gorgeous wooden designs with stunning images.
