After collecting alot of glass, this was the first project I attempted.

The glass was found on a beach near the Mavericks surfing spot in Northern CA.

The small shadow box sits on a window sill in my kitchen so that I can enjoy the beautiful glass.

A suggestion/question
by: BookLady109

I love this beautiful Sea Glass Window Pane! Thank you for sharing.

I was wondering if you could use a Gallery Glass that mimics lead came.

I forget what it's called, but Gallery Glass sells it in a package of straight strips that are adhesive on one side, both sides are black.

They are easily cuttable with an exacto-knife, the color doesn't fade, and the strips can be bent into any shape.

I've used this product in painted "faux" stained glass French door panes; the window panes are about 15 years old now and still look new.

black pieces between sea glass
by: Leslie

Beautiful window!

What material did you use for the black pieces between the sea glass?

I loved what you did so much it inspired me to make something similar for myself.

I love how the black makes all the colors pop. What a great idea!!

Window Pane Thanks
by: Em

Again, thank you Alexis. I did look at Michael's on line but will check out the store. I thought I found one at Joanne Fabrics, but I miscalculated the space between the panes.
Thank you again!

Shadow box
by: Alexis

Em, I found the double glass shadow box at a craft store - Michaels. They don't have them all of the time, but it may also be something they can order. Hope you can find one.

More help needed
by: Em

I loved that you shared your instructions and I was looking forward to trying to make my own window pane.

However I have been unable to find a shadow box that is double paned.

Would you mind me asking where you found the shadow box or did you make it yourself?

Thanks again for being so generous with your talents.

Stunning sea glass window pane
by: Vicki

Your sea glass window pane is absolutely stunning!

What a wonderfully creative mind you have to come up with such a beautiful idea for your sea glass.

Thank you for sharing it and for inspiring us all.

Thanks for sharing
by: Em

Thanks Alexis for sharing your technique for this unique piece.

I have use the E6000 glue before. Did you try that?

Now I am anxious to experiment. I have some sculpy clay and I was thinking that may have been what you used.

I'll be anxious to see future projects from you.

Again, thank you!

Sea glass Window Pane
by: Alexis

Louiselle, Em and everyone- Thank you for the nice comments.

To make this small window pane I purchased a shadowbox that had 2 pieces of glass so that I could sandwich the sea glass between them.

Not knowing much about which glue to use, after trying at least 10 different kinds, I ended up using Duro super glue.

Even the glues made for glass to glass gluing didn't seem to work as well as Duro.

The glue is not as invisible on the back side as I would have liked, but again, the best of the ones I tried. (Any suggestions on the best glue?)

The pieces around the sea glass were made from Super Sculpey oven bake clay, painted black.

Hope this helps, it was a lot of fun make!

Please share
by: Em

Like all the other comments, I love this piece and like the others, I would love to know how to make one like it. I am getting a nice collection of glass but even with the worst pieces, I like to keep them intact and not ruin them with glue. This project or one similar would be perfect. I hope you don't mind sharing your amazing project.
