Overview

Discover a novel approach to the traditional craft of stained glass. Noted artist Ed Sibbett, Jr.'s unique designs make use of beveled glass and "jewels" — specially cut glass that captures and refracts light. The facets cut into the glass make light dance, mimicking the inner fire of an expertly cut precious gem. The effect is stunning: the rich tones and linear designs of stained glass glitter with sparkling, elegant highlights.
The wealth of patterns featured in this volume makes it easy to achieve the exquisite beauty and lore of jewel-cut glass. No special skills are required. One-of-a-kind patterns incorporate beveled and jeweled glass right into the design. They are as easy to use as ordinary stained glass and readily available from craft supply stores.
You can create a dazzling array of stained glass projects based on Sibbett's designs. Over 80 floral, geometric, bird, butterfly, fish, Art Nouveau, and Victorian motifs appear in square, rectangular, circular, octagonal, and free-form shapes. Adapt them for door and window panels, box components, candle shelters, mobiles, mirrors, and lightcatchers, or any project that requires extra sparkle and sophistication.
