Glass BEVELS, Jewels, Medallions, Nuggets

The things in this section are manufactured items designed to be incorporated into a stained glass window, lamp, or whatever else you choose, or in some instances may simply be wrapped in lead or foil to become the finished product. You can make money easily during your other wise unoccupied evenings by wrapping nuggets in lead or foil for sale on the morrow. (Gift Shops and Flea Markets are excellent outlets.)

Working with nuggets is a good way to get started in stained glass because it requires no glass cutting, is a low-budget undertaking, and shows quick results. Somewhat addictive, it is a pleasant way to spend a rainy afternoon.

During the Victorian era, stained glass artisans often included glass "jewels" in the windows they created for their wealthy patrons. These craftsmen used the jewels to create a frame to encircle important parts of the design, or studded the repetitious border with jewels, alternating them with plain strips of colored glass. They might also use these jewels to depict the centers of flowers, or to emphasize important centers of interest.
