Mix ad-laden rich-lady magazines, cardstock and severe boredom, and several hours later you get:



A beautiful necklace! I glued the pictures to the cardstock, cut them out with an exacto knife and sharp scissors, poked holes in them, and connected them with links from a chain.

Cool! Awesome idea! Smiley  How long did the cutting and glueing take you... with that many 'gemstones'?  Wink

Wow -- that is GREAT.  It looks so real!  Does it look real from a couple of feet away?  I have to make one of these!

W Magazine. It's insane how many jewelry ads are in there.

Not sure, I started and stopped and I was listening to NPR, but... three hours, maybe. Long.

That is so AWESOME!  It took me a minute to realize they were 2-D gems.  I love it!  I would so buy something like that.  It looks very Urban Outfitters-y and I mean that in a good way.

Ooh, very nice! Did you seal the surface with anything? (ie: decoupage glue)
