Hello everyone! Today, I have a jewelry piece to share with you. I designed a beautiful shabby fleur de lis necklace with lots of sparkle.
I get a lot of emails from people asking different question about the jewelry I design from where to purchase supplies to jewelry tips and people wanting to know how long I have been designing jewelry. It has only been in the last couple of years that I started posting some of my jewelry pieces on the blog so a lot of people think it is something that I have only been doing for a short time. But I have actually been designing jewelry for many years 15+. I wanted to bring something new to the blog and handmade jewelry really started to take off a couple of years ago and become very popular so the timing was perfect. I love designing jewelry and I hope you enjoy the different pieces I share with you. :)
Here is the necklace I designed. I used several products from ButterBeeScraps and then a few things from my own stash. I started out with the BRONZE FLUER DE LIS TIBETAN CHARMS (#J352-B) piece. I spray painted it using Krylon Flat White and then I lightly buffed it using steal wool (grade #0000) to reveal some of the metal. Then I sprayed it with Krylon Crystal Clear Satin to seal the piece. Next I added a bit of sparkle with the SS8 CLEAR AB POINTY BACK CRYSTAL RHINESTONES, SS10 CLEAR AB POINTY BACK CRYSTAL RHINESTONES, and white flat back pearls to the fleur de lis.
Here is a close up look at the fleur de lis. To create a dangle at the bottom I added some TEXTURED BRONZE CABLE CHAIN (#CH521-B) and then I created a beaded dangle. For the beaded dangle I used a BRONZE BALL END HEAD PINS, BRONZE FILIGREE BEAD CAPS (#CAP052-B), CLEAR RHINESTONE AND BRONZE RONDELLE SPACER BEADS – 6MM (#BD006-B/CL), clear tear drop bead, and a white rose bead.
I created some wire wrapped bead strands using bronze wire, BRONZE FILIGREE BEAD CAPS (#CAP052-B), CLEAR RHINESTONE AND BRONZE RONDELLE SPACER BEADS – 6MM (#BD006-B/CL), clear oblong glass beads, and white rose beads. I made four of these bead strands and then added TEXTURED BRONZE CABLE CHAIN (#CH521-B) and a smaller bead strand in between to create the length of the necklace.
Here is a close up of the smaller bead strands.
Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed this jewelry piece. :)
