My dear friend, Eileen, loves making jewelry. She especially loves making jewelry out of supplies that aren't necessarily intended for jewelry. I have followed her lead and have become quite addicted to turning just about anything into a jewel.
Tuesday night in my meetup group, Eileen and I teaching the crafters how to make some very cool jewelry. My project uses a simple cut out wood circle from AC Moore. I made my own homemade Glimmer Mist (with a recipe from Eileen) and sprayed the wooden circle. This gave it the cool red tone. I used the Eastern Bloom stamp set from Stampin' Up! and stamped it with black craft ink. I finished it off by covering the piece in Versamark and clear embossing powder. I heat embossed it to seal in the image. Pesto! Add a black cord and it's done. I may add some beads later. Sometimes with projects like this, I have to set it aside and come back to it.
I found these heart boxes at AC Moore and had so much fun collaging it. I used the CANDY LANE PAPER from Stampin' Up! and a lot of Mod Podge!
