Patterns for South Beach Frame
Created for Stained Glass, Fused Glass & Mosaic Glass
Full-size patterns for 13 art deco wall sconce patterns designed to fit into the South Beach Frame metal wall sconce
by Carole Wardell and Crys Soderholm
Patterns for South Beach Frame presents 13 full-size patterns specifically designed to fit the South Beach Frame metal wall sconce. The designs have a decidedly art deco flair that is reminiscent of the architectural style found in legendary ‘South Beach’ Miami Florida. A 5 page instruction section is included that features tips for using and adapting the patterns for stained glass, fused glass & mosaic projects.
The 13 full-size patterns presented in this book were specifically designed to fit into the South Beach Frame. However these elegant designs are perfectly sized to hang as independent panels in most windows. These patterns can be easily adapted for custom sized traditional stained glass windows by adding background and borders or repurpose them for fused glass or mosaic applications. Each pattern in this book is shown fabricated in stained glass but that is only the beginning of the possibilities.
