Sleeping Beauty

Sleeping Beauty...

Trying out an idea I have wanted to pursue for quite a while. Storybook, fairy tale doors.
My girls and I love to watch the tv series "Once Upon a Time" and I thought it would be fun to do some fairy tale inspired doors.

Premium Beads 3 days in the making....
I only get the urge to make these about once or twice a year due to the labor intensive, time consuming nature but oh my, I do love how they turn out.
Here is the process..
* make canes
* make beads
* cook beads
* sand beads by hand starting with 400 grit then again with 600, 800 and finishing with 1000
* gloss beads and heat set 5 times each

sit back and oogle their pretty glassiness.

These are going to be made into lamp pull/ceiling fan pull sets which I am then going to hang for display at this years Renaissance Faire. I think I will make some sort of display so they can hang from the top bars of my canopy. If anything I think they will look pretty!
