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.

like the fantasy

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
