This blog was posted previously on my friends blog at Bee Keeper Studio . I thought I would repost with my designs on my blog as well, and share the wealth of how-to on making your own simple DIY Jewelry, great for fun gifts or quick projects for all ages. Enjoy.
For this project you will need these tools: diamond glaze (clear drying liquid adhesive), scissors, decorative paper, (no 1.) Making Memories “Paper Reverie” 18 pc set (comes in several color options, for this I used “Noir”, runs about $5 for a set), (no 2.) Necklace backing, Silver hoops for necklace making, Silver Blank ring, Silver blank double sided necklace piece, Silver Earring piece pair, Pliers, Disposable paint brush. (grab all of these at your closest craft shop!)
step 1 + 2. Take your bobby pin piece and add a little bit of Diamond Glaze on the flat silver part of the bobby pin with your disposable paint brush.
step 3: Then take your chosen piece, in mine I picked the black sparkly flower, and place the Diamond Glazed piece to the flat side of the plastic rose. Let it sit and dry. Should only take a hour or two to dry since it’s a lighter amount of Diamond Glaze.
step 1. Take your silver ring piece, and just like you did for the Bobby Pin, use your disposable paintbrush to add diamond glaze to the flat part of your ring.
step 2: Add your chosen piece for your ring and let it sit again, for at least 1 to 2 hours.
Now you’ve made an entire little accessory set as a gift — you can give them individually or as a fun set. The best part is you have several other pieces to use and make many more from.
