Sometimes I get a cool piece of glass that I just want to hang in the window, without cutting it up!
I just love the colors and don't want to take even a little piece out of it.
This mountain sunset is a perfect example...
After I figured out how to accomplish this task, I went a step further, because I've
also been looking for a way to make suncatchers I can sell for less by finding a less labor intensive
means of creation. Aha! Two birds...one stone.
No fancy patterns, so time saved on design and cutting and grinding.
I gently form my design using 14 awg tinned copper wire.
Then I hammer, yes hammer it, flat. I wrap my glass edges in copper foil,
and solder it all together.
That's it...down and dirty!
