See the many ways to decorate your home and garden with these Mercury Glass Spheres!

Indoor sparkle, outdoor shine. Decorate all your favorite spaces with the elegant warmth of these lit mercury glass spheres.

This blown-glass, battery-operated trio is as versatile as it is beautiful. Indoors, you can brighten your mantel, shelves, and tables with a tranquil glow. Mix with flowers to create a dazzling centerpiece for your next dinner party.

But why stay inside? As the weather warms, you can decorate your patio, deck, or garden with these gorgeous glass spheres featuring a new twinkling firefly lighting effect. They even come with easy-to-use attachments, so you can hang each sphere for overhead ambient lighting.

Perfectly balanced at varying heights, this trio can be displayed together or spread throughout your home--the decorating possibilities are endless! Because the spheres are battery-operated, you aren't limited by outlet locations. And don't worry about remembering to turn them off; they come with a handy timer function that automatically shuts them down after six hours, then turns them on again at the same time the next day. Using the timer function alone, you won't need to replace the batteries for more than two months.

Available in a brilliant selection of springtime colors, you're sure to find the perfect complement to your home and garden decor. And at this price, you may want to order more than one so you can mix and match.

About Mercury Glass

Many people ask Valerie, "Is it really mercury?" The answer is, it is real glass without the mercury! Our antique Mercury Glass look is achieved by a special six-step process—and no mercury.

Here's how we do it:

1. Starting with a piece of clear glass, we apply a layer of silver base paint.

2. Next, the painted glass pieces are placed into a vacuum-plating machine, where the paint becomes very shiny, almost mirror-like.

3. After this, we hand-apply a special solution onto the glass, creating the antiqued effect.

4. Once the glass has the proper level of antiquing (not too much, but enough to let the light through), each piece is fully rinsed to stop any further antiquing. Note: no two pieces allow the same amount of light through because each piece is individually antiqued.

5. Now the piece is ready for color! Each piece is hand spray painted, matching the Pantone hue chosen by Valerie.

6. Finally, if the glass is going to be used outdoors, we apply a UV coating treatment to help keep the color fresh, even after exposure to the sun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SKY BLUE These are just out of this world - the sky blue is beautiful and is truly representative of the blue sky here in New Mexico (no humidity. I just ordered another pumpkin - it is just beautiful. Love you Q and love you Val. 08-20-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by Just Ok I thought the light would radiate orange, but you can see its xmas lights. Why not put same colored lights in it at least! Why does pumpkin have black spots. Didn't see that on tv.. It would just take a little more detail to make a really nice product. 08-17-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by Pretty while they lasted. I purchased these a few years ago. They worked fine until this year. This past spring I was changing the batteries and the battery cover broke on the smallest one. I was then down to two. The next time I changed the batteries, the middle size one stopped working unless I held it in my hand to apply pressure to the battery cover. I am now down to one that works. It's a shame because they did look very nice in among my shrubs in front of my porch. 08-16-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful soft seasonal decorative lighting! This was my first order for the lit spheres by Valerie and I certainly wasn't disappointed! I ordered the pumpkin color to go inside the large metal pumpkin with the fruit and berry garland offered on Valerie's most recent show. It makes a beautiful table centerpiece but would be lovely on a front porch also. The middle size globe came broken which is very disappointing but I'm going to call customer service and see if I can keep the other two sizes and get a price adjustment since this color option isnt available now. So pretty I will definitely be ordering other colors! 08-14-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by Midnight is Grey The presentation video looks like the Midnight color is black. When you look at it on QVC site it looks deep blue. The color is actually a dark grey. It is fine for me but may not be what is expected by others. They look pretty when lit. 08-12-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not impressed I thought I was one of the lucky ones who got the pumpkin spheres but when I opened them up today I was disappointed in the color and the black spots all over the middle size one...You can see the black spots even when the lights are on...The color is not like the picture or on air...I am not impressed enough with these to keep them at almost 60.00 when you factor in Shipping and taxes..The other two have the black spots too but not as much as the middle one..I have two other sets one in gold and one in Christmas colors from years ago...They are made much better then the set I received today...I have them ready to go back so someone can get them on wait-list or "as is".. Good luck!! 08-11-16

They are so wonderful with the timer...you set it once & everyday at the same time these enchanting beauties turn on!!!! Definitely worth the purchase!!!! They make your home come alive with magic! Thank You so very much Valerie!!!! 08-11-16
