Crocheted Necklace

Today, I decided to work with Globecraft Memories bookboard bezels and Floral Flourishes to create a new piece of jewelry.  I am by no means a jewelry creator, but this necklace was fun to create.

I coated the flourishes with Cranberry Wine Enamel Powder.  I find it easier to coat the smaller pieces by dunking them directly into the jar, heat setting and dunking again.

The bookboard bezel was coated several times with Temple Stone Embossing Powder.  Since this is going to be a wearable piece of jewelry, I needed to coat both sides.  Once side one was completed, I flipped to side two.  The fun look I was able to achieve occured because the heat penetrated the other side and when I picked it up, the heated powder moved around on my craft sheet.

I coated the flowers with Real Rust Embossing Powder then placed the flowers and the flourish on the bezel.  I added a light layer of Glastique over the entire piece.  Once dried, I added a second layer.

While waiting for it the dry, I crocheted a necklace using wire and seed beads.

A close up of the necklace - I added small rhinestones to the flower centers to finish them.

Thanks for stopping by today.
