Glass update week 8

So, last week I was rushing towards the end:


I made it!  I was all bunged up with cold and just wanted to go home and lie down but I pressed on.  Halfway through the class I was a quarter of the way through, I pressed on and finished at 1 minute to 9!

 
 The outer border is clear glass with texture - it's called English Muffle.  It looks nice up close, but is hard to see in the photos!
 
 
I can't believe all of those nuggets are leaded.  I can't believe the whole window is leaded!  Next week I solder...
