Letter from the Editor
by Maureen James
Our lives are filled with special people who provide support, bring us happiness, and add years to our lives. Remembering others with handmade gifts from the heart is a great way to show them how much they mean to us.

Calla Ornament
Design by Robert Oddy
A 10-1/2" x 11-1/2" free-form small lily panel. The project gives a sense of depth and life by staying true to the natural shapes, which requires intricate cutting. Painted shading on the underside and the use of copper foil overlays also add a realistic touch. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Home
Design by Karen Stephenson
A 12" x 13" panel with house, yard, and fence illustrating the word “Home.” Copper wire is used to define the window panes. The panel can be hung independently or with its companion “Welcome” panel that can be found in Karen’s book, The Illustrated Word. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Uraeus Purse
Design by Takaaki Tsuchiya
A 6-3/4" x 5" three-dimensional stained glass purse with Egyptian emblem. Two of the panels are built and one is inserted on each side of the purse frame from TK Stained Glass to finish the project. Solder drops are used to add the eye of the cobra. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Fashionable Lamp
Design by Mark Waterbury
A 16" Tiffany-style dome shade with stylized fleur-de-lis border. A Lamp Designing Grid, Full-Form Mold, and Magic Strips™ from H. L. Worden are used to design and build the lampshade. Tips for prepping the mold and strips for protection from the solder are included. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Marbleized Beads
Design by Geneva Perkins
Instructions for making beads using glass strips. Uniform strips are cut from sheets of Wasser glass using a strip cutter or the Morton System. These flameworked beads are perfect for use in jewelry or as decorative accents for home decor.

16-Page Pullout Pattern Section
The pullout section contains all of the patterns, most of them full-size, that you will need to create the projects in this issue.

Snowman Snow Globe
Design by Karen Stephenson
A 6" x 7" free-form suncatcher for beginners. Glass is prepared to receive the painted details on the eyes, nose, mouth, buttons, and snowflakes by lightly drilling with a diamond bit for glass. Arms are added using copper wire that is soldered into the design lines. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Elegant Fused Place Mats
Design by Darlene Johnson and Judy Lee
Instructions for making 17" x 13" fused place mats from Wasser glass. The floral design is created by cutting spirals in the circular pieces with a Taurus ring saw. Reverse firing is used to avoid the spiking that can occur when Wasser is fired onto regular glass.

Victorian Collection
Design by Mark Waterbury
A set of small, medium, and large Victorian copper foil panels. These three computer-generated designs are simulated in several different color schemes and types of glass and are done in 10-1/2"x 13-1/2", 16" x 16", and 24" x 12" sizes. They would be a great addition to any home as decorative panels or transoms. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

When Pigs Fly
Design by Leslie Gibbs
Free-form 8-3/4" x 4" and 7-1/2" x 3-1/2" flying pig suncatchers. This pair has wings of Clear Krinkle, which gives them added sparkle. Enamel paint and copper wire are used for the eyes, hooves, tails, and smiles. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.
