hanging stained glass

Hello! I have several unframed glass panes that I have painted with stained glass paint. Now I'm not quite sure how to hang them. Any suggestions?

I have drilled holes to add chain for a few of mine. Got pics of your lovelies?!

RE: hanging stained glass

I would actually be wary of drilling the glass myself...I'd most likely either put them in a frame or put them in one of those acrylic picture type frames that you can buy and drill holes in the acrylic or use hook eyes and chain on the wooden frame. What size are they?

RE: hanging stained glass

Thanks for the input. I bought a tube of 527 multi purpose glue that said it works on glass and metal (etc.) so I glued a thin chain to it (it's only 5" x 7") We'll see how it holds up in the sun.

RE: hanging stained glass

OK....on to plan B....the 527 didn't even last through today's rain! are some pix, tho (please keep in mind my purpose was to save the glass -- stained glass art is not my forte!!):
