I'm not wanting run of the mill 12V low vol lights. I have done google searches but have yet to find anyone that has custom dome style copper garden lights.

Any suggestions?

You realize that copper is toxic to plants, lichens,and moss.

ESD has a line of copper and brass on display here in San Diego but I can't remember the brand name. I think they are made in Carlsbad Ca. Rod

I have gotten lighting from that CCL site above, they're knock off's, but comparable in quality for the most part, on what I have gotten from them. And fairly well made, I was impressed. But really cheap.... FYI I think they have a minimum order of a $100? (Easy to do, even on small projects, but hard to order a single light.)

Oh, copper is great for snails slugs too, the goo they excrete creates an electrolis reaction high eneough to give 'em a little zap thats uncomfortable enough to keep them from going on copper surfaces.

Larry,
Acually copper is one of the 16 nutrients that plants can not live without. They due however need minute amounts and it is very toxic to plants in excess amounts.
