Finished this today. Hard to show the dimension in a picture.
I love it! I have been wanting to make some of those but they look so complicated. I have been afraid to try. Are they as hard as they look?
smickerdoodle, not really hard, but rather tedious. I'm sure there is an easier way to make them than I do, but I don't know it! I drew a pattern, cut out 12 pieces of glass and started putting them together. I lay out 4 pieces, solder them together flat, then put 2 pieces together x2, solder one of the 2 pieces at a right angle to one side of the flat piece, then attach a single one to each side of that, then repeat on the opposite side of the star. That would make more sense if I had pictures, but maybe you get the idea.
Very nice! I'm sure this takes VERY precise cutting to get everything to come out even. Did you attach twisted wire to all the edges?
Way over my head, beautiful!
Just beautiful!!! Can you give us the dimensions of the pieces? I would like to try one.
WOW - can't even imagine doing a project like that. Very nice job. Glad to see you back.
Sheesh, I thought I'd already commented on this! Anyhoo, LOVE it!!! I have a book (stained glass) on making Whirlies...3-d glass projects...butterflies, birds, flowers in 3-d...just 10 or 20 more things I wanna make some day...lol!!! I think I even have a book(old one, I scrounged at a used book store) that has those stars you see with candle holders inside for tea lights. If you want the pattern let me know. I'd show the books I mean but I screwed up my computer and now I can't download pics!!Grr! Does anybody else just out of the blue one day, think...hey, I don't know what that program does..so I mustn't use it...I think I'll delete it!?!? BAD JANE!!!!lol!
Jane, thank you! I would love to have the pattern for the ones that hold a tea light. Can you email it or do you need my address?
