Old window art created from recycled glass

I took this old window I had and created pictures and designs from bits of recycled glass from broken bottles, dishes, leftover stained glass and flat glass pebbles.

Pattern or design used: My own design - Gayla Crosby

I collect beach glass and have jars full that I plan to make jewelry with, but would never use it all in a lifetime. I should consider doing something like this with all of my gorgeous pastel colored beach glass.
Thanks for the inspiration!

Do you know where this should go? Hang in in front of the window in your bathroom as a privacy screen and to let all sorts of pretty light in!!
