Glass Treasures by Bonnie Saunders are extremely high quality pieces created by Canadian artisan, Bonnie Saunders. In 2003, Bonnie had the distinct honor of presenting a custom piece of art to His Royal Highness,  The Earl of Wessex, and, in 2008, the prestigious honor of presenting the very first Canadian Forces Badge Plate to Chief of the Defence Staff, General Rick Hillier.  More recently, on September 7, 2012 during the PPCLI's French Grey Ball held at the majestic Fairmont Hotel MacDonald, Bonnie had the distinguished honour of making a presentation to the Regiment's Colonel-In-Chief, The Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson. She presented the very first PPCLI Battle Honours Plate which was received with great adoration by Madame Clarkson.  In addition, Bonnie presented the very first Marguerite Cap Badge Plate to the Colonel of the Regiment, Lieutenant-General (Retired) Ray Crabbe who was extremely pleased with the gift.

Bonnie is proud to support the brave men and women who serve and protect our communities and country.  These admirable and meritorious collectible tokens will be cherished by members and their families forever. At present, Bonnie has received permission to produce quite a few Canadian Badges and Crests, many of which you are familiar with:

The Process
PROUDLY CANADIAN MADE


Each Glass Treasure by Bonnie Saunders begins as a clear glass plate which becomes transformed into an exceptional, high quality keepsake.  With fourteen complex steps from start to finish, the creation process poses a high degree of difficulty. The delicate procedures result in the brilliantly rich crackle which receives and illuminates light and provides a unique element of depth to each piece. These remarkable heirlooms are rendered individually by Bonnie, with all processes administered on the backside of the glass.

Each plate is framed in an open faced, solid wood shadow box lined with red ultra suede. Two custom engraved black plaques add a personalized touch to commemorate one’s service.  These framed mementos can be either wall mounted or displayed on a stand.  A bilingual certificate of authenticity is also provided.

“The beautiful Canadian Forces Badge Plates, crafted by Bonnie Saunders, make a unique and meaningful commemorative statement for a wide variety of occasions.  We were most pleased to have Bonnie present the very first CF Badge Plate to General Rick Hillier in Calgary, on 14 June 2008 at the Military Families Fund Gala, just prior to his retirement, as a unique momento of his outstanding service to Canada."

Testimonial:

"The RCMP Crest Plate by Bonnie Saunders is a very unique addition to the RCMP Foundation's licensing program.  The distinctive crackle pattern adds a vintage appeal to the RCMP Crest.  This plate makes a great gift for any current or retired RCMP member or any one looking for a true Canadiana Collectible."
