They are gorgeous! I have been tempted to go to classes for stained glass work but should have done it years ago when my wrists were still strong. They have certainly lost strength now.

Have any of you had a go yet? I cannot see my husband doing any more glass work for a while due to his hands shaking so much, it is such a great hobby too but does need a strong steady hand especially when cutting the glass and soldering.

We used to get our glass from a company called Tempsford Glass, they sell everything including video or CD which show's you how to do it. I will try and find their web-site if anyone wants to have a go. It is possible to have a look around and find other company's too because it is quite a while since we were buying glass and equipment.
