My father recently replaced our house lights and gave me the dozen beveled glass panes that came out of them, around 4"x2" each. I really would like to use them for something cuz I hate to see them go to waste. Does anyone have any ideas on what I can make with them? Thanks for your thoughts.

Wow, these would be great!  You can paint on them and hang them as ornaments or in the window as sun-catchers.  You can sandwich a photo between 2 as a floating frame.  You can paint one side and cover the paint with a layer of cork to use the other side as a coaster.  You can glue them together in a box shape and use them to hold stuff.  You can paint them each rainbow color and hang them in the sun in a line.  There's just so much you could do!

I would etch a decoration on them or paint a stained glass pattern on them and hang them up.  Or sandwich preserved flowers/leaves or something translucent and solder the edges.

What I probably would be tempted to do is to take piping, a dowel, or even an old branch, etch a motif onto each pain, solder the edges to frame them and attach a jumpring to the top of them, and using different layers of chain, dangle them from the piping (whatever you use) and hang them in front of the window, or as wall decoration - or even a hanging centrepiece.  You could decorate the hanger a bit more, and intersperse it with old chandelair crystals too.

If you can find an old light fixture or chandelair, you can do something similar too.  I have to admit I would  love something like that.
