Traditional Bevel Flower

I just finished this traditional bevel flower panel.
The flower bevel is made from extra thick glass and has great refraction as the light flows through it. Sparkles are just everywhere.
I made the rest from various textures of clear (not colored) glass and even added a bit of iridized glass for a counterpoint of soft tonality. A very small red accent on each side set into the Jack Frost glass border and a rich black patina completes the panel.
This is the current trend. The use of textural glass in clear or very soft colors.
These panels compliment almost any decor and do not impose themselves on the room.
Yes, I had to put it on Etsy.

Jack Frost Bevel

Glue chip bevels...just like a normal bevel except the flat / clear center part has been glue chipped. They make a different look when used in place of a regular bevel.
They seem to add a dimensional look to a panel. They give more visual interest, more texture, and a way of harmonizing with the "jack frost" surround. 
Yes, it is going on Etsy.
