Stained Glass Valances


In the winter of 2005-2006 I took classes and learned how to work with stained glass, which was an interesting departure for me as I’ve never been interested in stained glass doo-dads. My original thought was to create quilts out of glass to hang on the wall. That also happened to be the same period of time when we moved into a different house and I had to make decisions about window treatments. One day as I was looking at the bare windows I said, “I’m  going to make glass curtains” and the idea of stained glass valances was born!

Dan and I worked together and created our first design, Noah’s Arc, loved it, got a copyright, and decided to bring joy to other people’s windows. We have been creating custom-made stained glass valances for people ever since!


Let the sun stream in with our artistic, innovative, glass valances. Whether you are doing one window or a room full, you will be amazed at how different your room looks! The process is very simple:

  • Begin by measuring your windows.
  • Select one of our patterns or create your own.
  • Choose the glass colors and textures that work with your décor.
  • Hang when completed!

They only take a couple of minutes to hang – no tools required! Yes, you can still have blinds or shades behind them. Email us with your measurements to get a quote.
