Purple Cat

This stepping stone is the first mosaic I made.  No, your eyes are not deceiving you, and Yes, that is a purple cat.   Everyone laughed at me for using purple stained glass, even I was laughing, but when we saw the final project I knew I had picked the right color of glass.  This purple cat greets me everytime I walk up my front steps.  It brings life to my dead flower bed.  


On the left is an old chair that belonged to my grandmother.  I painted it purple and mosaiced the moon and sun on the wooden seat.  Even though it is stained glass on the seat, it actually is comfortable to sit on.  To the right is an old metal table that started to rust.  After sanding, applied rustoleum and painted blue; I mosaiced a duck in water on the table using stain glass.  I love the way these two pieces came out and have them displayed on my front porch where they are often used. 

Snow Divas

These snow divas are made of stain glass, their faces and bikini's are heat set painted.  They can be used as christmas ornaments or used year round as suncatchers.  What a cute gift tag they would make on any gift. 

Angel Plates

These cute little angels are made out of small saucer plates and candy dishes with stained glass wings.  I used different textured glass for each angel.  Some angels stand alone by their wings, others are meant to be hung on a window or wall.  These angels will spread their wings and brighten any home with peace and love.

Stained Glass Cross

This stained glass cross takes on a different look when hung on different colored walls.  The blue outline and rose are made with stained glass pieces placed on a glass picture frame. I used clear textured glass for the interior of the cross.
