Issue 68

Welcome to all stained glass enthusiasts. These Stained Glass Gems have been found during my frequent browsing and deep digging for helpful and or unusual stained glass web sites, as well as other information pertaining to stained glass. I do hope that there's a gem or two that will brighten your day and be helpful during your stained glass journey.

I want to wish a Happy and Prosperous New Year to each and every one of you.

My next three ezines will be coming to you from our travel trailer as we spend some well earned time traveling the southern and south western United States. We plan on visiting as many stained glass studios as possible during our wanderings. We have no plans or itinerary other than to end up in Arizona, to visit family, before we head back home.

By the way, all links are working at the time of posting this ezine. If you're having trouble opening a link, try a different browser.

Stained Glass Blogs and Web Sites

Please remember the importance of not copying the designs you see in the following blogs and web sites. Copyright laws must be adhered to.

Look what you can do with Clear textured glass. These panels are beautiful without any color.

Delphi Artist Gallery has several hundred pictures in their gallery. It's a great way to get your creative juices flowing. Once again I must remind you not to copy any of the pictures. However, you can let your imagination run wild!

Coriander Traditional Stained Glass and leaded Lights is a great site for anyone that enjoys Art Deco, Art Nouveau and Victorian stained glass.

Have a look at Robert Oddy's web site for some unique patterns, plus a free pattern to show you what the patterns and instructions guides are like.

Although Robert's patterns aren't for beginners, I know there are a lot of you that are very capable of working with them. These patterns will make your skill level grow by leaps and bounds and you'll learn new techniques that you won't be taught in any classroom. Have a look at what he has to offer and download that free pattern...it's beautiful and something I know most of you would love to make.

Best deals in art glass suppliesDelphi Stained Glass Supplies is a place where I have bought supplies online and over the phone for many years. Some very helpful people work there, and I recommend Delphi as a reliable place to order your supplies.


I want to encourage you to have fun and experiment with your glass. Try new things and different techniques. It's amazing what you can do when you "think outside the box."

Look for your next ezine on January 25, 2015.
