1  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 12 ENTRIES / Macaroni Bling-Bling and Iced Out Popsicle Sticks on: June 01, 2006 10:47:52 AM
I've been thinking about making this little project for quite a while and voila- the perfect opportunity!
The items from the list that were used:  Penne (pasta), gimp, popsicle sticks

The "chain" is made out of penne shapped pasta that was spray painted with "platinum" metallic spray paint.  The cross medallion is made from two popsicle sticks  - one was cut in half and trimmed down to make the cross piece and then glued to another full stick.  I spray painted it as well.  I coated all of the pieces with clear laquer spray because the silver was sort of rubbing off  Undecided

Then I "iced out" the cross by gluing on rhinestones in different shapes and sizes and added a little silver glitter for extra sparkle.  I glued a small piece of pasta to the back of the cross to create a "bail" to hang it on.  I strung up all of the penne and the cross onto silver metallic gimp.  I'm really quite pleased with how it turned out.  I'm sure aspiring rappers everywhere will be scouring the supermarket and craft store shelves to create this original piece of jewelry!   Cheesy

2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Be-jeweled baby t-shirts (inspired by the cutout jeweled necklace) on: June 01, 2006 08:02:27 AM
I was so inspired by the collage jewel necklace (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=80184.0) that I decided to try my hand with it.  I came up with this nifty idea of scanning in the jewels then printing them on inket t-shirt transfer paper.  I then cut out individual jewels and ironed them on in a necklace form onto a couple of baby t-shirts (adult t-shirts would look awesome too).  Here's how they turned out.  I haven't washed them yet so hopefully I did a good enough job setting the paper.
