[Stained Glass Gems] Magazines for the Glass Hobbyist
December 02, 2015

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 apologize for not sending out an ezine in such a long time. Many things have taken place which became a priority over anything related to glass work. Life is in balance once again. We have moved from NY State to Arizona (one of the priorities to get moved before feet of snow came down). I'm ready to get back to my first love...stained glass.

Stained Glass Blogs and Web Sites

Please be aware that any of the glass work in these blogs and web sites is there to enjoy, not to be copied.

Galeria Witrazu is an awesome site to browse through. Beautiful, unusual, differet, those are all words that come to mind to describe this site. Enjoy!

PDQ Patterns This web site has patterns both for sale and some are free. If you are looking for something to make for a Christmas present, this might be the place to find the perfect pattern.

Stained Glass One has some very nice work. Their suncatcher page might give you some ideas for Christmas ornaments and quick to make gifts.

If you know of a web site or blog that you think the rest of this ezine's readers would like to see here, please let me know. You can contact me Here

How to Prevent Glass Cutting Problems is for anyone that has trouble cutting glass. How to Use Running Pliers goes hand in hand with cutting glass. They are not used just for running straight lines.

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 the next ezine around mid January.

Signature


"I want everything we do to be beautiful. I don't give a darn whether the client understands that it's worth anything, or that the client thinks it's worth anything, or whether it is worth anything. It's worth it to me. It's the way I want to live my life. I want to make beautiful things, even if nobody cares." ~ Saul Bass
