PROUDLY PRODUCED IN CANADA!
Each Land Ordnance Engineering Branch Badge Plate (in this case, the "JIMMY") begins as a clear glass plate which becomes transformed into an exceptional, high quality keepsake. With many 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 8" plate is framed in a black, 11"open faced solid wood shadow box lined with red ultra suede. Two custom engraved black plaques which sit on the frame add a personalized touch to these mementos, which can be either wall mounted or displayed on a stand. Included is a bilingual Certificate of Authenticity that is signed by Bonnie Saunders and applied to the backside of the frame. This certificate contains a brief description of the mission of the proud members who wear the badge or crest that is featured on the front of the plate. This is a great added feature for future generations to appreciate.
FOR THE PERSONALIZED ENGRAVED PLAQUES THAT SIT ON THE FRAME:
Bonnie recommends highlighting the rank/regimental number and name of the recipient on the smaller plaque. The second, larger engraved plaque provides an opportunity to include 3 additional sentences to better commemorate an occasion or words of choice. This is very important, as it will pass on historical details for future generations. There is a 60 character maximum for each sentence. Bonnie is happy to help you so the wording is perfect for the occasion.
Glass Treasures by Bonnie Saunders provides official products under license from Her Majesty the Queen in Right of Canada, the Department of National Defence and the Canadian Forces.
When you purchase a Canadian Forces Badge Plate, not only are you investing in a very unique heirloom, you are also supporting the many men and women who serve to protect us. A portion of each sale will be contributed towards the Support Our Troops Fund.
Be sure to have your camera ready! The proud recipients will be pleased beyond measure! I'm looking forward to receiving testimonials featuring the LORE Badge Plate. Stay tuned!

Sorry for taking so long for a pic of this totally awesome plate you sent me. I am loving it and the memories I have when looking at it makes me smile every time. I was with 706 Communication Squadron in CFB Borden, ON, "in the bunker". Proudly served as a 212 Teletype Operator and have many many great memories of the people I had met while serving. This plate will always be special to me and I know I will be ordering a couple more in later years to remember my recruit times and cadets. Thank you again Bonnie for the wonderful job and great plate!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! My husband loves his plate as do I. He was just like "WOW!" on Christmas morning looking at it. He has already taken it and put it in his office. He's like "All the other guys are going to be saying WOW where did you get that?!" Thank you sooooo much! You do beautiful work! Thanks again!
TESTIMONIALS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME!

"Bonnie, thanks for the fantastic plates! After 40 years of service in the Canadian Armed Forces I retired on 13 February 2019 and was formally presented with these in honour of my service. Col Nishika Jardine, an old friend and fellow member of RCEME, presented the Corps plate, and LCol Gabriel Dore, Commanding Officer RCSU (Central), presented the CIL plate.
The senior staff of RCEME were highly impressed with the corps plate and are interested in looking to make this part of their routine retirement presentations. If you are interested I'll pass on your contact information to them."
Lieutenant-Colonel (Ret'd) Charles Jansen
