Welcome to Reflections of Glass. I enjoy making beautiful stained glass pieces and want them to be affordable for everyone who enjoys this medium. I have always loved stained glass, but thought it was too expensive, which is one of the reasons I decided to learn how to do it. I enjoy the artistic side of it, as well as working with the glass itself which always has a special characteristic about it. I now have begun to incorporate other elements such as seashells and glass nuggets into the design that complement the piece and the natural environment it is meant to reflect.

Stained Glass Candle Holders

This is a wonderful set of stained glass candle holders for use with tea lights, and they also look awesome during the day reflecting the natural rays of the sun. When lit, the candlelight creates a beautiful shimmering backlight on the glass and produces brilliant colors and reflections. The vertical sections are 2” to 3”respectively on each side, and the clear glass base is about 3.5” square. These candle holders were comissioned as a set to be given as individual gifts, so I took the opportunity to use various combinations of glass.  One uses sea green hues in baroque and rough rolled, another is made with hues of blue waterglass and clear reed, and the other is medium blue and clear hammered glass.  Each type of glass reflects the light differently.  Which is your favorite?

  1. I just discovered that you are a follower of Style Key West. Thanks for your interest. Your glass art is beautiful and I've enjoyed browsing through your past posts. I tried to reach you through your etsy site but I am terrible with computers so I don't know if you received my message. If not please comment on Style Key West which comes up on my gmail and I can reply. I'm interested in trying smething small like the votives (really beautiful) in our shop. Hoping to hear from you.
