Jewelry Inspiration with Alicia!

Good morning Quick Quotes readers, Alicia posting some off the page creations today!

I recently purchased some glass and trays to make charms. I had so much fun finding scraps among my Quick Quotes papers and stickers to create these sweet necklaces.

First, I made all 5 charms, then I decided I didn't want them all to be necklaces. I used the anchor as a centerpiece for a flip it card. I kept the others necklaces but incorporated one into a gift card for double duty!

These are super easy to make:
  • Apply a glue medium that dries clear to the back of the glass and press down on your image
  • Wipe away excess glue with a cotton swab
  • After drying cut your image around the edge of the glass
  • Finally use a super strong adhesive to adhere it to the tray
  • Add a jump ring and add to a chain or ribbon

For the gift card, I used one of the necklaces I had created and incorporated it into a card. I used coordinating Farmhouse papers and popped up the topper on pop dots to have room for the necklace to hang between that layer and the base of the card.

I put the chain in a zip lock to keep it from hanging out the bottom.  I cut a couple of notches in the paper to hold the necklace in place. I also used Versamark ink and a clear embossing powder to make some transparent wings.

I hung the necklace right over the center of the wings.  It is subtle but really fits with the chipboard sentiment.
