Iridescent Reflections of a Stained Glass Window

Six years ago, when I created the Stained Glass Window you are seeing reflected on these iridescent glass beads, I would never have guessed that it would still be here today , let alone bring me as much joy as it did yesterday at my ( Playtime)


I dropped a pair of pliers and caused a crack to start in a the bottom left hand corner of the center window in the family room. The three 48" x 60" windows were only 4 years old then and I was preparing for our sons High School Graduation party, Having just spent $400 on redecorating the room and knowing that I was going to spend WAY TOO MUCH money on the party, I decided to not replace the window right then. Instead, I purchased a couple bottles of Glass Art Liquid from the craft section and started to play on a large piece of glass I used on my desk. what started out as a single Rose turned into 3 long stemmed roses. Then, a couple of rolls of Light tack masking tape, 3 tubes of clear Silicone Caulking, and many hours I had created a good seal to stop the double paned windows from suffering steaming for a year or so.........


.....well 6 years later, I just do not want to get rid of it. I will have to someday, just not yet.
