Beyond its many meaning and beliefs the tree of life is always a favorite.  Represented in a stylized manner in stained glass, this project is very satsfying. 

A very beginner creation, the tree of life is fun to make in the fact that not two pieces are the same and you can give your tree the color scheme your heart desires. Acentuated and interlaced with glass nuggets the look is complete and sits on a table or window sill or hang it in the window for your pleasure! ...or better yet, it makes a wonderful present.

Remember to bring a dish cloth to dry your pieces. 

 This is a long class so be prepared to have something to drink and a snack with you (if you wish). For safety reasons, please make sure that you have closed shoes and your long hair tied-back.
