Mini Witch Balls 3"

Introducing Witch Balls: magical protection for your home! These one-of-a-kind, hand-blown glass spheres make a unique and dazzling addition to any space - and yet there's more to these beauties than meets the eye.

Witch Balls are designed to draw in negative forces, suck away bad gashes, and offer up some peace of mind. Attuned by cosmic power, each carefully crafted Witch Ball comes with 3 to 5 strands inside to help capture evil spirits lurking in the air. Your personal sphere is guaranteed to be completely unique with its own burst of colors, strands, bubbles, and size - no two will ever be the same!

Each piece is handcrafted with love by a certified, professional artist so you can rest assured that your Witch Ball is made with care using natural materials. As each one is individually created and inspired by mysticism, color patterns may vary slightly from what’s pictured - but we think it’ll just add to the magic charm.

Witch's Balls have been very popular since the 18th century. First in England, then in New England, but their actual origin is considered to be much older.  For well over 3 centuries hollow glass spheres have been hung in windows to ward off witch's spells, evil spirits and ill fortune.  Hanging these decorative glass balls in the window or on the porch is thought to tantalize mischievous spirits which may be threatening a home's tranquility.  The wayward spirit is mesmerized by the ball's reflective beauty.  When the spirit touches the sphere it is absorbed and trapped in the web-like strands of the glass inside the ball, deemed forever harmless. 


A witch ball or speculum was a device used for scrying or divining things.  Sometimes the speculum was a magic mirror, a polished stone, or a crystal ball.  Some witches fashioned specula from black bowls filled with water.  By gazing into the reflective depths, a witch could find answers to urgent questions, predict future events, or see faraway places.  In maritime villages, witches sent out the glass globes fishermen use to hold their nets afloat.  The globes were usually made of dark blue or green glass and appeared quite innocuous.  Biddy Early, a well-known Irish witch, had a favorite blue glass bottle with which she used to view the future. 

Witch balls measure up to seven inches in diameter, and are occasionally decorated with enameled stripes and swirls or varying colors.  Some are mirrored for use as convex mirrors.

Crystal gazers sometimes claimed they used balls to see the spirits of dead souls that had been banished.  Therefore, the seer was thought to be dealing with spirits.

Hollow glass balls have been suspended in the windows of homes for centuries to ward off evil spirits. Legends say that evil spirits are attracted to the beauty of the ball, and upon touching its surface they are pulled inside and become forever trapped within the glittering web, thus protecting the home from any harm.

Now commonly known as "Witch Balls", these colorful glass balls originated in England during the 18th century, as people hung them in their windows to ward off demons and their evil spells.  Let the magic of our glass artists protect your home.

Our glass art witch balls begin as clear recycled glass. As the ball of molten hot glass is formed, the ball is rolled into color glass granules to provide the design. These granules are added to color 40 to 60% of surface of the finished ball, allowing sunlight the to brighten the sphere, and the strands inside the ball to be visible. Each witch ball is handcrafted unique. No two are exact. The size is about that of a grapefruit, approximately 6" diameter. Hand blown witch balls can be irregular in size and shape and consistent with the artist’s vision. These balls are sealed, and will work well as pond floats. Let the magic of our glass artists protect your home.

I really think it’s a beautiful unfortunately I don’t have a place to hang it in my apartment so I have it in a dish in my front table, so I’m not sure if it’s working or not but I still love it and will take it with me wherever I move… I would love to buy another one.
