These colorful works of art come in a variety of sizes and prices, so you’ll be sure to find one that perfectly fits your needs and tastes.

Joanne Jacobs Kaleidoscopes

One of the most striking things that you’ll notice when browsing through our line of Joanne Jacobs kaleidoscopes is how colorful they are. The popular Klezmer oil-filled kaleidoscope has a piano theme on the elegant exterior that translates to the interior image. Secretariat, in purple hues, features an image of a horse on the exterior, ideal as a gift for a racing fan. The Blue Iridescent Trufflet Necklace Kaleidoscope is a real conversation piece, coming with a silver-plated chain that allows you to wear and take this unique kaleidoscope with you wherever you go. You will even find kaleidoscopes in a variety of iridescent colors that you can wear as a brooch, ideal not only as a conversation piece, but also as a unique piece of jewelry.

Value of Kaleidoscopes

Value is a concept I’ve been thinking about recently. Value is not the price you pay but what greater benefits you receive for the product for which you parted with some of your treasure.
We are often asked what creates a great value in a kaleidoscope. Value comes from quality materials, good construction, an aesthetic quality that is personal as well as the rarity of the piece.
Some friends were Facebook chatting about a $50 butter dish from a high end kitchen retailer. For $50, you could select a Spirit Kaleidoscope by the Collier Studios. This scope creates great value by using ABS plastic for the housing and FeMo clay for the interior object cells. No skimping on the mirror system or optics however and you have a great scope with a 2 mirror system.

For $100 (or a bit more), you can get a decent pair of shoes. For that same price, you could select a fabulous stained glass kaleidoscope by a number of artists such as Kathleen Hunt, David Sugich or Joanne Jacobs.

For $200, you can have a great meal in a great restaurant with fabulous wine. Or you can have an extraordinary signed, unique piece of art by Judith Paul or kaleidoscope jewelry by the Healy’s.
