I've been creating stained glass "window jewelry" (panels and suncatchers) for 9 years. I became interested in stained glass 25+ years ago, while living in San Antonio. A restaurant called the Crystal Baking Company was one of our favorite places to eat, and it had some of the most gorgeous stained glass and beveled glass panels I had ever seen. I honestly don't remember anything on the menu, but the restaurant sparkled.
I finally made the time to take lessons about 9 years ago, and I've been hooked (obsessed) ever since.
