A dichroic glass cross I made in a glass class long ago.
Still saving it for.... something.

A small 3.5 x 6 framed stained glass window with candles
lovingly sewn on cardboard with tiny, tiny glass beads
Much more shiny than this picture shows.
Found at an estate sale a few weeks ago.
Not something I would usually buy.
A gold paper sticker on the back reads
Christine Senkyr
11205 Matilda
Cleveland, OH  44105
Curious, I looked up that name
and found this at the website ANCIENT FACES:
"Christine Senkyr (1898-1997)
Christine died on January 2, 1997 at 98 years of age.
Christine's last known residence is at Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio"

Touching to me to think  perhaps Christine made this and it found its way to me.
For this post.
For this Mary week. 
Beautiful stained glass windows in bead.
Delicate work. 

The Immaculate Heart of Mary
