My necklace turned out
even better than expected!
I am so surprised that this worked out as well as it did...you just never know what magical powers Jewelry Resin will have on a simple piece of paper and some plastic bead slices. Yesterday's post showed you how I made these faux jewels.
Then I had to figure out how I would hang the slices. I tried to drill into the plastic, but the original pieces are very brittle and chipped when I tested this idea. In my jewelry component stash I found these bars...does anyone know what they are called? I have no idea why or where I got them!
For some reason they fit perfectly on the back of my pieces. I have also been testing a new glue: Quick Grip. It was perfect for this project.
I arranged my bars and applied some Quick Grip and then carefully placed my flat bead slices onto the bars.
A few jewelry components later and I have the best choker ever! I plan to wear this at the Bead and Button show this weekend!
