Stained Glass Hand Trace

First, you can use the template we provide you with your Stained Glass Onboarding Kit.  Or you can use an 8.5″ x 11″ piece of paper, place the paper and hand being traced on an even surface and trace around the hand with a pen or pencil – just like making a hand turkey!

3.) It’s Time to Craft a Stained Glass Hand

We carefully cut the glass in the shape of the hand and fingers.  Then we grind the edges to make the sharp parts smooth.

We then lead the glass so each piece is wrapped in metal ribbon and soldered together.

After the hand is complete, we etch the name of the person’s hand along with the year into the hand.

4.) The Hand is Complete

After the hand is complete, we will carefully package the hand and ship or deliver the hand(s) to you.

Once the hand arrives at its final destination,  it can be a sun-catcher, on an easel on your favorite coffee table, or as an ornament on your favorite tree.

Make It Personalized

Make your order even more personalized with a custom message or icon on the hand.

Now grandma can easily identify her grandchild’s hand and favorite activity.
