In mid 2021 a client in the west county of Alberta had a idea for a stained glass panel for his wife. The second photo shows the conceptual idea. Using our Glass Eye 2000 – Dragonfly software program we created the panel design, along with input from our client and picking the glass that we used.
The panel measures approximately 12 inches wide by 18 inches high. We used a combination of Oceanside, Sky Blue Wispy, Orange White Wispy, Cherry Red Rough Rolled/Waterglass, Rainforest, and an older piece of Spectrum Green that we had in our inventory. The panel was framed with 1/2 Zinc came.
The second picture is of our clients original design concept.
The next photo is of the design pattern.
This last photo was taken by our client with sunlight reflecting the panels colors on their stove top.

Tena one of our daughters obtained this beveled suncatcher many years ago and unfortunately it fell and needed repair. Upon taking it all apart there were 2 bevels broken.
We then rebuilt the suncatcher with the new bevels, fixed the bent wire, cleaned and polished. A good idea for someone building a new one, it is best to bead all of the bevel edges prior to assembly as it results in a much better looking finished piece. The picture below shows the completed and restored suncatcher,
We have these awesome clients who ask us to make unique stained glass items for their many adult grandchildren each year. For Christmas 2013 we made this bevy of multicolored geometric’s, each one has a clear jewel centre. They measure approximately 5 inches x 5 inches. When soldering we put a penny under the jewel which raises it higher in the geometric and shows it’s beauty to a much higher degree.

Here is another color combination of the quilt block we made in 2007. With snow on the ground even on a dull winter day stained glass will brighten your home.
In 2007 we made this Quilt Block use Bullseye (Red), Spectrum (White) and the Gold came from an old broken window, which we rescued before being disposed of.
