[Stained Glass Gems] Magazines for the Glass Hobbyist
December 16, 2012
I can't believe that the holiday season is upon us. Here, in Central New York State, we have had beautiful sunny days and green grass.
For those of you that aren't familiar with Central New York weather, we usually have at least a foot of snow and temperatures
in the low 20's by now. If it would only stay this way until spring (sigh)!
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.
Please be aware that any of the glass work in these blogs and web sites is there to enjoy, not to be copied.

Spain, showing some interesting stained glass. The 8th picture down is quite some entryway!

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."
Look for your next ezine on January 20, 2013.
"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
