Pink Rose & Crystal Cross Necklace and Earrings - Guest DT for ButterBeeScraps

Hello everyone!  Today, I am very excited to tell you that I am a Guest Designer for ButterBeeScaps.  I love using all of the beautiful metal filigrees, rhinestones, and jewelry findings to create jewelry.  So when Monique, owner of ButterBeeScraps, asked me if I would like to guest design I was happy to say yes! :) 

But before I get to my project I wanted to let you know there is a 
fantastic sale going on over at ButterBeeScraps and it ends Monday night at 11:59 pm PST.

Here is a look at the goodies I received.  I have been having so much fun creating with these beautiful pieces and I have several ideas already sketched out for future projects.

This is the pink rose and crystal cross necklace and earring set I created.  To start I added glossy accents to the floral image and then placed a Small Round GLASS Cabochons (#CAB018) on top and moved it around until I had it centered on the image.  Then, I set the piece aside to dry for a few minutes.  Once the piece was dry I turned it over to the back side and fussy cut the excess of the image from the cabochon.  Next, I added glossy accents to the back of the glass cabochon and placed it inside of the Small Bronze Round Cabochon Settings (#F018D-B).  

I used E6000 to adhere the cabochon setting to the Bronze Decorative Cross Pendants (#J397-B).  This is such a pretty cross and it has a lot of detail.  To finish off the cross I added some SS16 Light Rose Flat Back Glass Rhinestones.  I added a couple of jump rings to the cross and then I added some chain and beaded spacers.

Here is a close up of the beaded spacers.  I used powder pink crystal beads and darker pink beads along with the Clear Rhinestone and Bronze Rondelle Spacer Beads – 6mm (#BD006-B/CL).  I thought the beaded spacers were pretty and would dress up the chain.

To create the earrings I used some of the Bronze Ball End Head PinsClear Rhinestone and Bronze Rondelle Spacer Beads – 6mm (#BD006-B/CL), and the same beads that were used for the necklace.  I also used the Bronze Ball End Head Pins along with the 1-Step Ear Wire Maker Tool to make the ear wires.  

I hope you enjoyed today's jewelry projects.  If you like to make jewelry this would be a quick and easy jewelry project to make for a Christmas gift or any other occasion.

  1. Beautiful, Heidi! I love roses a lot and seeing that single rose in the center of the necklace is gorgeous. I'm sorry I haven't commented much. The last couple months have been heavily occupied caring for my elderly mother. Christmas is coming up so if I don't get to comment during that time, I want to wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas time together!


Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment!! I really appreciate it!!!
