2  Five necklaces and a necklace stand in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by LovelyMiss on: April 26, 2016 09:44:46 PM
I've started having to dress up for work again, and decided my outfits needed some bling. 

I don't usually wear much purple because it doesn't go well with my skin tone, but I wanted something to wear for #PurpleforPrince, so I made this last week.





A bright a cheerful necklace...this one took quite a while, because all of the tiny pink beads are on their own eye pins.  It is actually quite long; there are more beads hiding behind the necklace stand.



Skulls and flowers.



Double layered.  The depth of the colors is kind of lost in the photo.



And this one, which is prettier in person.  Very sparkly.




I also wanted something to photograph necklaces on, so I made a necklace stand, which is holding all of the necklaces above.

I made the template in Publisher and cut out two layers of foam core.  I only did the slit in the back layer, so the wedge stand could be inserted (see below).



I just gave the layers a quick coat of spray adhesive and covered them in fabric.  I did them separately so I could stick them together, back to back, and the back of the stand would be fully covered.  If I made another, I wouldn't care so much, and would just stick them together, and cover it all as one piece.

 

The little notch in the wedge is to hold the chain/string so the necklace stays in place more easily.  I added a cross bar for more stability, and used hot glue to kind of "weld" the wedge in place.  It works well, and I got to make it all out of stash.  Grin



Thanks for looking!
