A lovely happy accident. This weeks inspiration went through so many iterations, and I was tempted to call it Epic Adventure. The final design is very far from the original plan, but I love it nonetheless.
The design is quite simple, 7 links, 8 jump rings, and a piece of chain long enough to go over your head. Sweater season is coming up, and I just love long necklaces for fall - along with the added bonus of not requiring a clasp!
My original project was going to be a resin clay design. It of course didn't work out as planned, but I realized of course that resin clay makes a fabulous glue! You can dress up just about anything with a tiny amount of resin clay, and rhinestones/or anything you can think of.
Lay out all of your components/crystals in advance. Mix up a tiny pea sized amount of resin clay (Apoxie Sculpt or Crystal Clay).
* Once you've got it blended, pick off the tiniest bit (pin head sized), ball it up, and place it on your metal component.
* Press your crystal carefully into the clay. Try not to allow too much to squish out from under the stone.
* If any of the clay shows, you can either clean it up with a pick and a wet paper towel, or just brush on some metalFX in a coordinating colour to your metal.
