Announcement   Welcome. RETIRING DOG BREED SALE!!!!
Sorry for the mess, I am currently re-designing my dogs. As the old designs sell out the new ones will be introduced. I will not be making the old ones any more so please ask me if there is an old style that you wanted in a different color and I will move that NEW design to the top of the list. I also have 20 new breeds being added this year, a slow process so please keep checking back!

All Stained Glass items are designed and made by me in my studio. I've been making stained glass for 28 years now. This is the real deal, not glass painted to look like stained glass, or plastic melted in the oven but real stained glass. Each piece is hand cut, ground, foiled and soldered to create the beautiful sun catcher you will receive.

A SUCTION CUP IS INCLUDED WITH EVERY SUNCATCHER!

I now offer online fundraisers for dog/cat rescue groups. For more information please contact me here, through Etsy. You will receive a response in one day or less! This is my alternative to giving donations. Please do not ask for a donation as I get to many to accommodate. Thank you for your understanding.🐾

About

Sharing The Light

My dog, Leben, was my inspiration to create dog breeds in stained glass. I wanted to see if I could make her little face for the window, and so it began.

When I first started my business I did mostly craft shows and word of mouth sales. Then one day at a craft show a fellow vendor introduced me to Etsy!

Set up for the site was so easy I was up and running in no time. The idea was to be able to reach everywhere. I love creating in stained glass and just want to share that love with the world. Etsy has allowed me to do this. They take care of the sales and I can take care of the creating. Etsy also allows me to customize sun catchers for folks. I love working with people to get the perfect sun catcher that they will cherish for the rest of their days.

Each suncatcher takes about an hour and a half to crate from beginning to end. The first step is to create the pattern. I then trace each individual piece onto its appropriate color of glass. The fun part is next, cutting! I cut each piece out and place them together. Once it's all cut, I grind the edges so they are smooth and fit nicely together. I use the foil method of stained glass so foiling is next. Each piece has its edges wrapped in copper foil. It's placed evenly over the edges of the glass and the smoothed down on each side. Next up is solder. Each suncatcher is soldered together. I use 60/40 solder. This means that 60% percent is tin and 40% is lead. Once each suncatcher has been soldered I then clean it and patina the solder. This means changing the silver of the solder to either black or copper. When finished with the patina I then clean and polish the suncatchers. Now it's time for a bag and then off to the customer!

I take great care with each suncatcher to ensure the best quality. If treated with love, your suncatcher will last a lifetime!

Recently I was given the opportunity to make trophies for the Schipperke Nationals that took place in Chattanooga, TN in March of 2015. A fantastic experience which paved the way for the Alaskan Malamute Nationals in Oct of 2015, in Springfield MA. I'm looking forward to many more opportunities.

Let the Light Shine In!

    I started stained glass over 25 years ago. I work with the Tiffany style of stained glass. The Tiffany style uses foil and solder instead of lead, making my designs more delicate. I design all my own patterns, which allows me to do anything!

Thank you for visiting. I hope you've enjoyed browsing through some of my most recent work. Each item is hand crafted of genuine stained glass, hand soldered and is an original design, not plastic or glass painted to look like stained glass, but the real thing!
Due to the handmade quality, no two sun catchers will be exactly the same. A photograph does not depict the true color of the glass due to light refection off of and through it. Please allow for these differences when buying stained glass.
Nothing is prettier then stained glass in a window (or on a mirror). I craft each piece to enhance the beauty of nature and bring it to your window.
Thank you for taking a look. I look forward to serving your stained glass needs in the future.

Please read all policies before purchase as they will answer a lot of your question. If you still have questions please contact me before you place your order. Thank you.
