Royal Loop Bridge Lamp Shades by Hannah Murphy

Almost a lost art, Victorian "sugar shades" are not really made of sugar, but tiny glass beads the size of sugar grains, applied to one or more panels of custom sewn lampshades.   Striking results can be achieved with the endless possibilities,  either formal, informal, or novelty lampshades.  Almost any picture or decal can be used.  For instructional video to learn how to make these beautiful lampshades, click here:  How to Make Victorian Lampshades Instruction Video

Sugar shades are difficult to photograph because of the glare caused by the flash against the glass beads.  The pictures may look distorted or "washed out".   In reality, they are gorgeous!

 Current estimated completion: 5 - 6 weeks.
