My high school, Omaha Central High, recently had to replace the beautiful glass in their auditorium chandeliers because a lot of the panels had broken over the years. Fortunately they saved the old panels and asked me to think of ways I could reuse the glass for fundraising items and donor gifts. I ended up making a stained glass window for their fundraiser using purple nuggets and “C’s”. I also made a lot of hearts with a little “C” hook and jewels in the middle. I loved being able to contribute to my school in this way!
This was a really fun window to be a part of. My Aunt designed it for her good friend who lives in Texas and I executed it. I had the sheet of mouth blown glass for years just waiting for the right window to be a part of. The design originally was made using a rondel from Kokomo Glass, but it accidentally broke. It ended up being the best thing to happen because the rondel Ed from Crystal Forge made for me was just perfect. Once the window was done, I crated it up and off it went. I can’t wait to see it hanging in their living room. Once they send the picture, I’ll add it to the blog!
