I used beads, chain and jump rings from Plaid’s “It’s Black-It’s White” line. You’ll also need some Mod Podge, images, initials, paint brush, 20 g. wire, loose beads, round needle nose pliers, and wire cutters.
Brush a layer of MP onto the bead and add your favorite image.
Seal the image with another coat of MP. Use the MP to add crystals and the initial sticker as well. Set aside to dry while you make some beaded dangles.
I was tickled to find this Patina Penny Ring made by Erin at Crafts & Such. Why? It uses my absolute FAVORITE FolkArt color: Patina! If you are looking for an inexpensive and quick jewelry project (and not just because it’s a penny!), this is the one. The copper of the penny and the Patina are beautiful together, don’t you think? Make several for gifts – and have some good luck at the same time! Visit the tutorial on Erin’s blog right here.
What a brilliant idea – paint chips turned to jewelry! I found this beauty over at Joanne’s J Spot, and I wanted you to see how far Joanne thought outside of the box. I never would have come up with this. I have so much FolkArt paint in my stash that I could make this, and maybe you do too. See the full post here.
Remember Shrinky Dinks? I loved them when I was young! Not sure if you are aware of this, but you can paint on shrinkable plastic BEFORE exposing it to heat – when it shrinks, it retains the color. Just like this necklace above from Alisa Burke. Alisa used a black permanent marker and acrylic paint to fill everything in. Go here for the full tutorial.
