Issue 64

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.

Reminder: There will not be an ezine in July and August. The next one will be sent out on September 21, 2014.

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.

More nice work to look at from the Worksofglass I especially like the pink fish in the "Gifts" category and the musical pieces in the "Stained Glass" category.

These galleries come from Tiffanyzauber a German web site. Click on "Galerie" at the top of the page (in the grey area) to view her interesting pieces. I'm sure some of them will give you ideas for your own work.

Well, some of the work on This Web Site is not exactly what I'd hang in my front window. However, I had to give you a chance to see it.


News Archives This site shows many tips and techniques. As I have always said, there is more than one way to do almost everything in stained glass work. On my web site I show you how I do it. On Better Stained Glass, David shows you how he does it. If you're having trouble with any technique, learn other ways to approach it. Whatever works best for you is the way you should do it.
