Sure.
cut a circle then cut it in half and layer different frits on it.

Thank you Jim ! Is there a way to do it with sheet glass (as I still did not work with frits and not have them). Is it possible with a saw ? Jan

Cut a half sheet of clear and butt against 1/2 sheet of first colour. Place your circle cutter in the middle of the join, score half circle on the colour sheet, adust length in 15mm, leave base as is, run second score. Replace colour sheet with second colour, score with same setting as previous, adjust length in 15mm ... rinse and repeat 4 times. Carefully run and break out each segment
