This window depicts a pair of cardinals - I used a little artistic license to make the female more colorful than normal. The leaves on the tree are enhanced with the placement of green glass vintage rhinestones. In this detail photo you can see the use of small seed beads to outline and enhance the birds.

Multilayer Glass on Glass Mosiac window. The tree trunk and branches are on the second layer which is recessed about one half inch behind the front layer. The foliage is created with piles of beach glass with seed beads applied. There are other groups of leaves created the same way and applied to the front layer which also contains the border.
