Here are the other 3 from the Holiday Candle Cozies I designed for my gift giving this year.

This is the first in a series of Candle Cozies that I designed to add to the Holiday items for 2008

There is a group of 4. They average 5" wide and 4" deep. The series includes an Angel, Christmas Bells and a Snowman, along with this one.

Check my pattern section to get a peak at the other designs mentioned.

Can also be used as a shelf sitter, if one does not want to burn candles due to allergies.

Holiday items

Can you believe it is already that time of the year. Time to break out the holiday colored glass and get busy with those craft fair favorites. Every time I have done a show, people have requested some beveled items, so I added these to the mix for this year.
Love this time of the year. The kid comes out in me. I enjoy the wonder of the holiday season, the family gatherings, the promise of the New Year, and the joy seen in the eyes of the little ones. The other bonus is I don't feel guilty working on glass cause the yard work is done till spring.
I designed the blue angle to fit some of the stamped wings that I had in inventory. Will be making them in different colors. The small angels are glue chip bevels 1 1/2" square. I designed these with glass wings, last year, so to change things up, I decided to use the stamped ones. They make lovely attachments to the top of a gift box.
New this year there is a group four (4) of candle cozies that I have designed as gifts.

Lamp Design for my Aunt Mickie

My aunt had asked me to design a lamp for her. She loves claddaghs and thought maybe shamrocks would be nice. I asked, what about celtic knots. The colors are not final. Having a tough time deciding on the background glass. I may add a 6th panel also. ©Stained Glass Creations from

Anniversary Frame

This piece was designed as a gift for my husband for our 15th Anniversary.
I had a few bevels that I had used for engraving
and wanted to try something new.
The twisted wire used to depict the stem and allow to extend the number of buds and leafing.
If you attempt to make one be sure to use cardboard between the bevel and back glass, in order to have the room to insert the picture.
