Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend

In this case, diamonds definitely are a girl AND a boy's best friend. I've made this glass panel to be a prize at No2Son and his Beloved's Jack'n'Jill party.

This will be a pre-wedding fundraiser in September.... a sort of wedding shower plus party featuring yummy food and drink, dancing to a DJ, prezzies, raffles, games, maybe a silent auction. Everyone is invited from both the groom's and the bride's families, plus next door neighbours, school and Uni friends, quite possibly anyone they have come in contact with in the past 25 years!. Party Time!!

Wow. You're an artist, too! That's a lovely gift for some lucky bidder. I've never heard of a Jack n Jill party. Is this a British or Canadian thing??

Really lovely....I am making the assumption that a Jack and Jill party is a help along before the wedding with money and gifts...i sure wish I lived closer...I want those diamonds!!!!

This is exquisite. The beveled edges of the pieces in the middle really do add some sparkle.
I have used stained glass patterns for my mosaic work in the past and have tried cutting glass, but have not mastered the art yet!

Aw, it`s gorgeous. Where did you learn to do this stuff? I can do smaller stuff but it cannot be compared to this.

You MADE that? So this means you are creative and talented too? Holy smokes!

What is a Jack and Jill party?

FYI, happy bloggers, I've never actually been to a Jack'n'Jill party, but it's definitely a Canadian thing. A month or so before the wedding we hire a community hall and host a big party, both bride and groom's family, friends, distant rellies, neighbours, just about anyone is invited. There are tables of really good prizes on display... electrical goods, kitchen stuff, my glass panel, whatever we can acquire through the year (after Christmas sales are the perfect time to shop!), and each item has a box with it... we sell tickets (say $1 each or 5 for $3) and people put tickets in the box under the item they want to win. If you're really desperate for something, you put as many tickets in as you can, maximising your chances. Bride and groom keep the cash! There will also be a 50-50 draw, some games of chance, dancing to a DJ, food, shower gifts etc. It also allows the bride's family and groom's family to get to know each other if they don't live in the same area, as in my son and his fiancee's case.

Quite lovely. And from your own hand? I would almost think the fairies had left it on your stairs.
