Would it be Window-with- colour- glass- Charles?, so that they know we are talking about a window?. 
Just a thought,

  I think the question here is, "I don't know the sign for "glass" as in Stained Glass Window".  If one doesn't know the sign, one can't describe it.  I think she's asking for help from native ASL users who do know the sign and could post it.  The only one I know is "mirror" which holds the palm to the face and turns it as if catching the light once.  My SW is down or I'd post it. 

  I went to one browser and this is the best description.  It's the one I have seen used. 


  The bent index finger taps the upper front teeth as if to show that something is hard.

  so COLOR-GLASS-WINDOW would be the best, I would think.

    Hi Jeni, 

    what is needed is a description of your handshape and kind of movement in words as accurately as possible (with words) Once I get an idea about what you are doing while you are performing the sign I volunteer to assist you in writing this "action" in SW 

    All the best
