This is my second bluebonnet panel. The first one I made was a leaded glass panel. It was a challenge because of the many small pieces. In this stained glass panel I used the copper foil method for the majority of the piece. I used lead came for the border. This latest design has 82 hand cut pieces of glass. Some of the pieces are as small as the fingernail on my little finger.
I will admit that bluebonnets are not my most favorite thing to do; mostly because I prefer to work with lead rather than foil. However, bluebonnets are popular, and I do get requests for blue bonnet panels. Occasionally, I work up a new design (because I don’t like making the same piece twice) and after submitting an estimate I don’t hear back. This makes me wonder, what happened to my design? So now, I usually have a blue bonnet panel made up and ready to go should I get another request.
This bluebonnet panel measures 14.5” x 21.5” and is framed in zinc. The border glass is an opalescent glass in a creamy honey color. The blue border is in an iridescent blue glass which gives it a subtle sheen. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested and I will let you know if I have one for sale.

That is just beautiful. I wish I could do something like that. It is always something I have wanted to learn how to do but like a lot of things never got round to it.
Thank you! Keep it on your to-do list. You never know when you might get the chance to try it out.
did not see this in your store?
It is still available. If you are interested in purchasing it, send me an email at email@example.com
Do you still have this piece? If so, how much is it?
Marjo – I apologize for the late response. My site has not been sending me notifications. I do still have the panel. If you are interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you details.
I have a antique window- one upper 6 paine and one lower 6 paine panels for glass ( approx 10″x12 “). Craftman would like the glass panels /paine to actually be 9 7/8 x11 7/8inches for ease in slipping in the window paines. This was in my grandparents house that was destroyed. I have found a wood craftman who has put the windows back together, I would like stained glass panels of Texas wildflowers esp bluebonnets, paintbrush bloom and 4 other texas wildflowers. I want clear glass background and actual flowesr doesn’t need to be large as I want to be able to see outside. If I do both window portions, that will be 12 total needed – wouldn’t this be lovely antique to pass down to my children? I had considered dried wildflowers between 2 paine but concerned would fade and lose their color. Can you do my desires or have other ideas or suggestions. Any assistance is appreciated. Thank you kindly. Patricia
I sent an email to you.
Real? Sadly, no. Glass? Yes.
I cannot get the link to your store to work. Will you send it to me?
Thanks for letting me know. Here is the pattern:
