What face width and style of lead were you planning on using? One reason there are so many sizes and styles is that each application benefits from an appropriately sized and styled lead. Many retail shops carry a limited selection but other studios in your area may be have a good suggestion (possibly that low heart stuff) and may sell you a few pieces.
For a real thin glass, perhaps even a "regular" height, narrow, flat H would work. You will end up easing over the flanges (both sides) to make the lead resemble a round came anyway! Kinda.
IMHO, foiled bevels usually don't look quite right. It's about scale and quality of line, I think.
But remember, every rule has an exception......

PS: After you test fit all of the cluster pieces, you may find you need to grind a tad off each piece, thereby fattening up the edge a little.

Of course, you could ask about the proposed use fo the bevels. Although the suppliers may not know/care.
