GCD Theme: Jewelry (9-30)

Hi all!

Teri here, and I’m back yet again at the GCD Studios blog.

Heidi challenged us this month to make some kind of jewelry.

I came up with this necklace here.

What is pretty cool about this neckace is that the base of it is all Chipart chipboard. Ok, well, other than the ball chain. 😉

The oval is a piece of Chipart chipboard. I covered it with patterned paper from the Homespun Chic collection and sealed it up with Mod Podge.

The tag on top of it is chipboard, too. I covered it with aluminum tape I got at the hardware store. You can similar tape in the Electrical department.

 Then, I used the Chipart tool to spell “soar” on it and add a few flowers at the top. Once I did that,  I lathered on a coat of pink paint and Mod podge. Once dry, I sanded it with a nail file to rough it up.

The bird is also chipboard. I used the Chipart tool to add a couple designs to it. I painted the bird pink, let it dry and then roughed it up with a nail file.

When finished, I poked a hole through the whole thing and hung it on a chain.

I think this would make a really fun pin, too. Instead of a chain, tie a ribbon to the top of it and glue a pin back on the back of it.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today.

I’ll be back again soon!
