[Stained Glass Gems] Magazines for the Glass Hobbyist
May 11, 2017
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 the delay in sending out this ezine. I had some health issues that kept me from doing it. All is well
From now on I will only send out 4 ezine issues a year, one each season. I will try to pack each one full of information.
If you have something stained glass related that you'd like me to write about please let me know. My contact
information is at the bottom of this page.
Please note: All links have been checked and are working. If you are
having a problem with a link either try a
different browser or copy the link and paste it in the address bar.
Please be aware that any of the glass work in these blogs and web sites is there to enjoy, not to be copied.
Cute and simple! Check out some of the other catagories. Great
ideas for using up your scrap glass.
Diachroic Glassman has many How To videos on YouTube.
They are well worth your time to watch. I learn something new
every time I watch one, and I've been working with stained
glass for 43 years. There is always something new to learn. That's what makes glass work so enjoyable.
Coriander has many photos of their reproduction Art Deco/1930's Stained Glass. If that style interests you, you'll find
lots of ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
If you know of a web site or blog that you think the rest of this ezine's readers would like to see, please let
me know. You can contact me Here
I get a lot of questions about how to choose the right lamp base for
the lampshade you just built. This article should answer your questions. The way I have always done it is to take
the finished shade to a place that sells bases and try the shade on the bases until I find the right one. I know
that many of you can't do that, thus this article.
With the summer holidays coming, here are some places to find patterns appropriate for the season:

This sounds interesting.
I have not used it but I have heard good things about it.
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.
Delphi 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."
"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
