Question hanging stained glass window that lacks hangers

I have a stained glass window that used to have two looped hangers soldered on, but they have since broken off. How else can I hang this in a window? I don't own a soldering gun, otherwise I would just reattach them. Is there any hardware available at local stores that I could attach to the window instead?

A couple of options come to mind.

One is to take the window to a shop that does stained glass and have them put a couple of hanging loops on it for you. (They would probably charge about the same as the cost of a soldering gun, and you will get a much stronger job.)

The other would be to put a wood (my preference would be oak) frame around the window and attach eyes to that.

I second the frame and eyelet option. You won't have the risk of new loops breaking and your window falling!

My father has a piece done in this way and it looks very nice.
