Bling Bling in Circles

Necklace created by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Media Mixage Circles Three
Hi there blog friends.  I’m going to share another product of one of my gift making sessions with you.  I’m determined this year to make handmade gifts and I’m pushing to try different things than folks are expecting from me.  As I mentioned yesterday, I made a bunch of hatpins at the same time and while I was doing that, I created other elements – not really knowing what they would be used on but I wanted something ready for the inspired moment.  The moment came – as it often does when I’m involved in a great movie and want something to fiddle with, so I pulled some of the elements together for a necklace.  The beads were from my stash but are readily available at craft stores (teardrop pearls, chain, rondelles) and the round elements are bezels from the Spellbinders Media Mixage line called Spellbinders Circles Three – Silver.  I filled each circle with jewelry elements I had picked up at Michaels  (Bead Gallery), then poured Ice Resin over the top and let it dry.  Once dry, I put the pearls and rondelles together and attached them to the chain and finished off with a clasp.

Thank you for peeking in to see what I’m working on friends.  Thanks for you sweet comments about my pincushion and hat pins yesterday.  I’m a bit of a pincushion collector – I love them and have found them to be a surprisingly welcome gift!  I am working on more as the tick tock of the holidays is upon us :-)

    I am not going to allow myself into the Mixed Media thingy. However, I must admit that the necklace is beautiful and am sure whomever you made it for is going to immensly enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed looking at it. Bless you Becca.

    Hi Becca –

    Your hatpins and pin cushion yesterday were so gorgeous! Almost like something you would find at an estate sale from an old Victorian mansion. Your necklace today is simply stunning! Again it has that timeless quality to it and I just love it! How difficult is it to work with resin? I have some on order, but I have to admit that I am a little nervous about using it.

    Thank you for sharing your gorgeous art pieces with us.
