Totally attempting to make one later, this would be a perfect detail to my costume for Halloween!

Check at craft stores and stained glass supply shops. Sometimes they have pre-cut circles of glass.

Haha, well, that was actually an accident. In science class someone put a tiny amount of water in a beaker, and superheated it. Stupid idea. The bottom cleanly broke off, they got superheated steam all over their work, and I got a monocle. But I don't suggest it. Use something like an angle grinder or glass cutter, and remember to sand off sharp edges
