Stained Glass Mobiles – Part 1

Back in September I made my first stained glass mobile.  It was a gift for one of my German relatives who got married over the summer:



I soldered hooks to the top and bottom of the largest circles and connected them to each other that way.  Because of that, the pieces tended to rotate sideways – room for improvement.  But I loved how it turned out.  This past weekend I made 2 more stained glass mobiles [with 3 hooks between the circles so they stay facing the same direction].  Stay tuned for a post about those!

I can’t seem to stop being enamored with glass circles.  Cutting them, connecting them, etc. – I do hope someday to branch out into other stuff!  But for now it’s frames, ornaments, and mobiles:

I started out 3 years ago with stars, and a spider web:

But since then it’s been circles.  Lots and lots of circles.  There’s 108 just in these 6 photos, which don’t include the 9 I’ve made for mobiles or the ones I’ve made recently for gifts!:

today i cut 27 stained glass circles for my 2nd circles project        i cut 45 new stained glass circles!

This Fall I bought primary yellow and primary red transparent glass sheets, which has added to my color repertoire 🙂  I don’t know how I lived without those 2 important colors for the past 3 years!
