21  My "Ice Princess" necklace and earring set in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Anna D. on: April 01, 2005 05:11:01 PM

This wasn't difficult or anything, but I was pleased with the outcome.  This was my Christmas necklace. I had a ton of those Swarovsky crystal pearls and I have been using them for a bunch of different projects.  What do you all think?

Now I have got to go to Dollar Tree and see if I can find some of those "marbles"...they look really gorgeous with fabric! Great job you guys! Actually....I didn't see any that didn't look great!  I never heard of this before...my fridge has a lot of catching up to do! Grin

After the trip to Wal-mart and Dollar Tree.............
I found big "marbles" at the Dollar Tree, but they were kind of iridescent....my pictures didn't show up so well with them. I got some plain clear ones at Wal-mart...they are about 1/2 inch, but I really like this size. I used Mod Podge to put the pictures on and E6000 to glue big round magnets on...the pictures came from scrapbook paper and Japanese washi paper.

23  My "Vintage" necklace and earring set.... in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Anna D. on: March 29, 2005 02:58:40 PM

I love antiques and vintage stuff like you wouldn't believe, but can't afford to buy it all the time. I made this necklace based on a style I had seen all over the place. I put it together using beads and materials that I had on hand.  I wanted to make it look old so I tarnished my silver chain, wire and headpins using a hard boiled egg.   <You put the sterling silver on a plate with a shelled boiled egg next to it  and cover with plastic wrap...wait a few hours or overnight and it comes out a neat bronzey color.>  The dangles are made with daisy spacer beads, garnet colored druk beads and small smokey colored glass beads (from a multicolored package from Wal-mart). I went back and made earrings to match.  My mom later told me that garnets and bronze were a popular look in the 1920's.....I didn't know that, but thought the colors complemented eachother nicely. Smiley What do you all think?
