Hello everyone! Today, I have a jewelry piece to share with you. I designed a necklace using several products from ButterBeeScraps Artistic Treasures.
I had some fun creating this piece and adding some color to the bronze filigree pieces. The base is a beautiful Bronze Square Filigree and I painted it with Lumiere Pearl Turquoise Paint. Once the paint was dry I used steel wool to buff the filigree piece so some of the paint would be removed and the bronze metal would show. Doing this gives the metal piece a patina look.
Next I painted the Bronze Flower 8426 using Vintaj Patina Paint Quartz and Ruby. I painted the bottle petals with Quartz. For the middle layer of petals I mixed the Quartz and Ruby paint. Then for the top layer of petals I used the Ruby paint. Once the paint was dry I used E6000 to adhere the square and flower filigree pieces. Then when the adhesive was dry I gave the metal pieces a couple coats of Krylon Crystal Clear Matte Finish.
I added three 6x8mm Faceted Glass Abacus Beads - Clear AB to the center of the flower and I added one Clear AB SS10 Pointy Back Crystal Rhinestone in the center of the beads. I also added the Clear AB SS10 Pointy Back Crystal Rhinestones to the stamen part of the flower.
I used a metal hole punch to punch a hole in the bottom of the square filigree piece. Then I made some beaded dangles to hang from the bottom. I used Bronze Ball End Head Pin, Bronze Filigree Bead Caps (Item #CAP046-B), 6x8mm Faceted Glass Abacus Beads - Clear AB, 8x12mm Faceted Glass Teardrop Beads - Clear AB, Aqua Crystal Beads and Pink Flower Bead Caps to create the dangles. Then I attached them using Bronze Jump Rings.
To finish off the necklace I added some bronze chain and a lobster clasp.
This would be a perfect necklace for Spring--now we just need some warmer weather LOL!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I hope you have a wonderful week!
