PROUDLY PRODUCED IN CANADA!
Each RCAF Badge Plate 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.

When I left the service, the only things I took with me were one uniform, my cap badge, dog tags, shaving kit and a lot of great memories. The plates are not only a great memento of my time in the forces, but they have brought alive all those great memories. The craftsmanship is superb and a fitting testimonial to anyone who is, or has, served in the Cdn Forces. Looking forward to receiving the next plate on my list."

"I ordered this RCAF Badge Plate for my dad back in 2012 in honour of his 25 years of service in the Armed Forces. He was very proud of it and had it displayed for all to see. I am very proud of my father’s service and still am! When he passed in Dec 2018 I made sure his cherished plate was safe and is proudly displayed in my home and it is now extremely dear to me. I was thrilled when asked to provide a testimonial for Glass Treasures by Bonnie Saunders and have been forever grateful that I was able to make my dad proud with his plate. Thank you Bonnie for doing this!”

"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."
