Dreaming of Spring

by: Jennifer Tough

I think I can speak for everyone at beadFX - We're all itching for spring to come. It's teasing us at the moment with fabulous warm weather, and sunny skies. However, it is March, so I'm not going to get my hopes up just yet. I was playing around with some collage images, and found a tiny butterfly that would fit perfectly into the TierraCast frames. Step 1) Choose your image, and cut to fit the frame. Step 2) Add a tiny dab of mod podge into the frame, and press your image in. Step 3) Paint a thin coat of mod podge over the image, let dry and repeat. This seals your image. Step 4) Add a couple drops of Diamond Glaze, and use a toothpick to help push the glaze into the corners. Let dry for at least 6 hours. I wanted to keep the bracelet fairly simple, and let the butterfly be the focus. I used a single wire wrapped bead in green and aqua to match my pendant. I then used 3 6" lengths of small chain to form the rest of the bracelet. You'll notice I used a lobster claw clasp for security, however it is a bit fiddly to put on without help. You may want to switch it out to a toggle :-)
