Hand crafted in the U.S., each bevel piece is cut and polished to create a fine quality cluster. Light is reflected and refracted by the bevel angle of the glass, creating a stunning prismatic effect in certain lighting conditions, and adding depth and elegance to any design.
This bevel cluster measures 10-1/4" x 10-1/4". 12 pieces.
Delphi Tip: Always lay out bevel clusters on pattern before cutting glass to adjust for small differences.
Step-by-Step: Beyond Basic Bevel Design
1. Define your project borders and center lines on graph paper. Arrange bevel pieces.
2. For additional options try repositioning bevels. Add space in between to incorporate cut stained glass or additional bevels. You can even remove pieces to alter the design.
3. Once you find a pleasing design to fit your space carefully trace bevels, then add pattern lines for glass to complete the design.
