Green is my favorite colors, and I had all this great green stained glass left over from another project. So it was used to make this combo green and tan mosaic pendant.

The stained glass is stood on end so you can see the range of colors in the glasses.

with the glass on end like that does it make it sharp or dangerous? I love the way you can see different colors, totally cool looking!

When the pendant is initially done, yes the edges are jagged. But before it is sealed I use my grinder to make it level across the top and smooth all around the edge of the tray. No injuries from the glass are possible.

The glass is rarely solid color, so it is nice to be able to see all of them. Smiley
