I usually don't make jewelry, but I saw a bracelet like this in a magazine for like $1000, so I had to make one for about $2.50. Well, it cost a little more cause I bought new paints, but I barely used any out of them.

(You can see an oddly creepy shot from my TV on this one.)

I'm not wild about the chain I used;it's really hard to fasten, but it was the best the Hobby Lobby had.

How ironic, someone just gave me 3 puzzles
and said to do that with the pieces if we didn't
want the puzzle!!

Very cool idea!

What kinda paints did you use?
Any kind of spatter paint like?Huh?

Yeah, I got the puzzle at the thrift store a while back. It was pretty cool, but not my style for displaying (Mickey Mouse doesn't quite go in my room Smiley). I used cheap acrylic for the white to cover all the puzzle parts, and then some like $2 Roseart watercolors for the splatters. I tried to paint splatters, but the I was like screw this, and just got a toothbrush to splatter with. My only advice:don't stab yourself in the thumb with the needle while poking holes in the pieces, it hurts!

isewcute:I think that would be a great idea!

I have a "Crop~a~dile" eyelet/gromet thing
and I use that alot for anything I need holes in...
It has two different hole punch sizes.

But I will have to look into doing those...
