This month Sakura Hobby Crafts sent us some amazing jewellery findings to work with. But to be honest with you, I've never fancied myself as a jewellery maker, ever. I've tried making some pieces over the years, but never really got the hang of it. So when Sakura sent me these pieces I knew I would have to figure out a way to make these pieces sparkle!
Warning the following project is rated EASY!
Choose a rub-on of your choice and rub in onto the back of your glass.
I used a metal large tag ring and removed the paper center. I cut a transparency circle to fit. I did use a very thick transparency. Insert transparency circle back into the frame.
At this point you could put your rub-on's on the entire surface of your circle, but I really wanted the angel to show thru so I did this step last and it worked out well. I glued my glass piece directly in the center of my transparency and let this dry.
DO NOT LIFT THIS PIECE ONCE YOU'VE GLUED IT DOWN. THE RUB-ON WILL LIFT OFF.
I used a hole punch (Cropadile) and made a hole at the top of my ring. I inserted an eyelet for extra support.
I glued beads around the edge of the glass, using 3D Crystal Lacquer. Then I surrounded the entire base with 3D Crystal Lacquer as well. BEFORE the lacquer had time to dry, I sprinkled some glitter around the edges.
I really like this piece, it looks so pretty around my neck and it is something I will wear often. I hope you will try to make something similar. I can't wait to see your creations using this technique. And to help you get started you can order your jewellery findings from http://www.sakuracraft.com/index.htm
