We were the originators of the comprehensive stained glass starter kit and there are many imitators. The difference between us and them is quality. We simply will not sell you a stained glass starter kit that is filled with dip in oil cutters, under-sized, under-powered grinders and a bunch of filler to make the kit look larger.
Every component of our kits is studio quality and chosen to give you years of quality service. You will not grow frustrated with our tools or need to upgrade them once you master your new craft. You probably don't know the difference (yet) but we do, and we want to start you with a set that's going to provide years of enjoyment.

These special three bladed pattern shears remove a tiny strip of paper from your patterns to make up for the foil that will go between your glass pieces during construction.
Choice brand breaker/grozer pliers are used to break away small pieces of glass along the score line for perfectly fitting pieces. Choice brand breaking (line) pliers.Just line them up to your score line and squeeze. They apply the pressure needed for clean breaks. A small glass pack containing about one square foot of Spectrum glass-- great for suncatchers. Glasseye trial edition CD containing 300 stained glass patterns.
The patterns never expire and there are some great ones on this CD. Bevel Cluster: I include this because assembling a bevel cluster is a great project when you're learning that will have you looking like a pro. You'll draw a pattern to frame your cluster in your choice of glass, then cut your pieces, foil your glass and bevel and assemble it. This project is a great confidence booster!
