Something I have been experimenting with recently is making jewellery and beads using Stampin' Up! products. I had seen someone using washers to make jewellery so thought I would try my own twist and see what happened. I took the Stampin' Up blossom punch and cut it into pieces to make some petals and design a flower. With a bit of inking round the edges and on the cardstock a flower was created. I then used crystal effects a really good lacquer which dries clear and has an easy use nozzle and with the help of a soft paintbrush a built the flower on the washer. Oh before that I embossed some sparkly glitter to the washer to give it a little sparkle.
Really pleased with the finished pendant which I will put on a nice cord (have just used this twine for the photo as it was all I had to hand) Have got a few other ideas and will be trying them out over the next few weeks. It is a really inexpensive idea as I bought a pack of washers at the hardware store for a couple of pounds and there are 12 so can make some lovely gifts and wear some myself.
Hope you enjoy.
