About 25 years ago I started making jewelry as a business. I sold the things I made at craft fairs and gave them as gifts to my family and friends. It is weird that when i got into scrapbooking I seemed to abandon all previous crafts. Over the years, they have crept into my scrapbooking and now are making a comeback on their own. Since Xaver also has gotten into making jewelry, I have been playing around and making more jewelry pieces with some of my scrapping supplies. Who said we couldn't mix it up?
“Bronze Fall” Necklace by Jennifer Priest

- Adhesive- Tombow USA
- Pearl Beads, Findings – Bohemian
- Velvet Ribbon – Hydrangeahippo.etsy.com
- Paper – My Mind's Eye
- Epoxy Cap and Shape Studio – Epiphany Crafts

This necklace is surprisingly easy to create but packs alot of impact, great for dressing up a fall sweater or dress! Attach a flattened bottlecap to an eye pin with several beads on it. Then attach a Connie Crystal suncatcher to the bottom of the bottlecap. Add beads to the ends of the crystals on the suncatcher. Add to a piece of velvet ribbon to create a necklace. Create an epoxy accent for the center of the bottlecap with the Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio and then glue to the bottle cap with Tombow Power Bond Adhesive.
