It's a fast-growing craft, and a lot easier than you think.

The materials are inexpensive and the equipment is available at craft stores. Choose among 21 different projects that feature exquisite hanging panels, five colorful lampshades, hinged jewel boxes, three types of vase, as well as a decorative dish, candleholder set, desk clock, and sand garden. Glowing full-color photos show each project, plus all the patterns to trace right onto the glass. Tips on displaying your work shows how to best position them for a dramatic and romantic effect.
Containing 21 original projects, this is a beginners' guide to stained-glass making that encourages the reader to use tools readily available in the home.
