So I had this big framed picture that I inherited from my mother and I decided to reuse the glass and the frame (I gave the print and mat away). I bought some stained glass from a friend of a friend who was getting out of the stained glass business and used glass beads leftover from other window projects to reproduce "The Kiss" by Gustav Klimt. Enjoy!

Stunning! My mouth dropped open when I saw the preview. It was even more stunning to see the whole photo.

Very difficult to re-create in glass, but you did it!

Thank you all for the kind comments! The toughest part of all was how to render the woman's face.

This is stunning! Did you tack fuse some of it or is this all glue?

@6PetalGirl: Yes, it's sold, but it's gone to a good home! The buyer promised to love it and treasure it. Couldn't ask for more!
