I'm looking for colorful glass bevels, if there is a store online link that would be appreciated. I want strong colors other than just light blue, green and peach, and clear. I'm hoping for amber, brown, red, deep blues and greens. I just need rectangles, squares, or pencil shapes.

Have you thought of plating a clear bevel with the color of your choice to make the bevel colored?

The edges od bevels are pretty thin, so kjt's idea is the best. There are folks out there that do custom bevels from colored glass. It's labor intensive, so it's not cheap, but the results are really special. If you want to make something outstanding...

True. Here's my favorite:

You can also use jewels for some applications.
Have fun - Tod

funny I never thought of plating the bevels. The worst part of not thinking of it, is that I am already plating the rest of the piece. Thanks

Plating a clear bevel will give you the color, the part that will be missing is the surface difference of the glass compared to the beveled portion. On beveled artglass, this textured portion is removed on the beveled portion, giving a whole different look. It is all in the look you want. Plating a clear bevel is not a fix-all, and is not a replacement for the look of beveled artglass, you lose the "line" with-in a line.
