Wishing you and yours the merriest of Christmases surrounded by those you love!!
Today, I'd like to share a little “christmas-wear” project I made – a Christmas tree necklace with ICE Resin!
When I first saw the Art Mechanique triangle shaped bezel I thought “TREE”. And then I realized it hung like an upside down tree. DOH! Luckily, Xaver is handy with a drill so he drilled a hole for me in the tip of the bezel so that I could hang it the other way, like a tree.
When I received these ‘Tis The Season beads from Prima Bead by Cousin Corporation, I loved the way they looked on the packaging, all bundlesd together. Each bead is pre-strung on a head pin. To get this look, I threaded a piece of wire through all of the loops on the wrapped beads and then created a wire-wrapped loop att he top so I could hang this “bead made of beads” from the bottom of the tree. I threaded the loop end of a golden tassle through another ‘Tis The Season bead from Prima Bead by Cousin Corporation and then connected that to the wire inside the “bead made of beads” using a jump ring.
To create the bezel, I punched fir sprigs fromscrap cardstock and laid them inside of the bezel, adding some red porcelain beads as “ornaments”. Then I threaded two jumps through the hole that Xaver drilled in the bezel. I mixed ICE Resin according to the package directions and poured it into the bezel to fill, allowing it to cure for at least 24 hours before attaching the chain and beads.
