Earth Day Inspired Jewelry

Earth Day is tomorrow and I love creating new items from recycled pieces, I really wanted to do an Earth Day inspired piece (in this case pieces).

Used Tape Roll
Terri Sproul Mixer:  Tanazite Pearl, Ultra Fine Glitter
3D Crystal Lacquer
The Robin's Nest Dew Drops
Cereal Box
Fish Hook Earrings
 1.  Wrap the Tape Roll with Tule - tie knot in end.

 2.  Paint with 3D Crystal Lacquer and Terri Sproul Mixers.

 3.  Place a rim of Lacquer around the top add Glitter.  Allow to dry.

 4.  While drying create earring and pendant.  Use an oval template to create four circles on a cereal box (for the earrings) and two larger ovals for the pendant.

 5.  Cut out the circles
 6.  Glue the circles glossy side together and trim.

 7.  Tie tule around the circles.

 8.  Paint with Lacquer and Mixers.

9.  What you fingers will look like.  I would recommend washing them before wrapping the wire or you will glue yourself to your project.  It is also recommended that you allow the project to dry completely before wrapping (once again so you won't glue yourself to your project.)  Add Dew Drops for finishing touches.

Finished Set - Bangle Bracelet, Earrings, and Pendant
