Stained Glass Box

This is a box I made in a stained glass class about 6 years ago. Making a box or 3-dimensional object versus a window in glass (which I was more accustomed to) has its challenges. I used a pattern and then adapted parts of it for the sides and bottom. The challenge is in cutting every piece the same (and not your fingers), avoiding grinding as much as possible. Once the pieces are cut , you copper foil , flux and then solder together. One of the hardest parts for me was adding the hardware (hinge and chain). The box ended up looking antique rather than contemporary which I liked.
