A few weeks ago I wrote a post about fairy houses. I mentioned that I was working on a bracelet that featured a fairy door. It’s finished now!
Here’s a long view
The project was very different from the jewelry I usually make. They usually involve animals or gemstones. This features fairies and glass beads and pearls. Plus it was based on a design by Kate McKinnon in her book “Jewelry Architect”.
The clasp started out as a pendant that I bought from an Etsy shop in England. The bail was cut off, and it was glued to bead embroidery backing. The clasp was a project that involved a village - my husband and his saw and my beading friends who gave me great advice.
The door opens! I glued fairy scrapbook paper inside, but it could have held a little picture.
It’s one of a kind! Fun to make and fun to wear.
