1. Cut clear window glass into
3" squares (teacher).
2. Arrange small pieces of colored
glass, glass noodles, and glass beads
on the clear glass.
3. Glue the colored glass to the clear
piece using a toothpick and white
4. Lay a wire “U” on the clear glass
and glue a glass piece over the top.
A piece of glass noodle works well
to secure the wire to the glass.
5. Place glass on a kiln shelf that has
been coated with kiln wash.
6. Place kiln shelves in kiln and
fire to 1450°.
7. When glass is cool, tie a piece of
