Glimmer and Glitz Covered Flower Necklace Draped in Crystals.

With Christmas right around the corner. I am creating projects for family and friends. I made this necklace for my mother. I have been trying to cut corners but still make amazing gifts. This necklace was made of paper. I used the graphic 45 Transatlantic paper that is black and gold little circles. I used the Cricut to cut out 2 inch squares and cut those in half to create triangles. Than with the point up fold the right side over to the middle and the left side under to the middle. Make 8 of these to make the base of the necklace. Than glue together in the middle, once dry using versamark cover the piece and cover in clear embossing powder. Keep adding embossing powder and then spray with iridescent gold glimmer mist heat until the spray melts into the embossing powder. Add stickles around the edges than add the diamond dust. I created a fabric twisted rose to add to the center. Than draped the piece in swarvoski crystals in 2 colors to add a glam to my mom’s necklace.

Have a Super Creative Day

Happy Holidays

    Wow, that’s really pretty. Were the swarvoski crystals expensive?

    No I bought them on ebay from a wholesaler so they were not a bad price. They are the hot fix kind too.
