I hope your all well & had a great weekend. I did, we always seem to have a late start with doing summer active with hubby at work & our little man in summer school so Saturday rain or shine we had a bit of fun.
Sunday was craft shopping day & pep boys day. So you know me here it Car folks my car haul video lol.
bye for now Eileen
OK so over the weekend I went to Michael's & got a few things to help me make some more stick pins. I got some beads & some bead caps. I also some more pins but not really happy with them so I'll just use the ones I already have, until an idea came to me but more about that later
Beads are earth tone colors, sliver leaf bead caps which are a little big but I think I've made them work for my project. Once again to hold everything together I used glossy accents.So easy& fun to make.
As for the charm well I already had most of the items from my last shopping trip but I didn't have the beads nor did I have the other stick pins so I remembered that you could twist the ends to make a loop, add a jump to the loop & add it to my charm. So I gave it a shot with the stick pins that I wanted to take make & it worked really well.
I used a Tim Holtz swivel clasp, a jump ring then a crown add some rings to the crown then add some charms them & to those jumps I add a other jump ring then a washier to the washer I added the bead charms with their jump rings. Funny thing is that when I took the photo of the charm & laid it flat it looked like a person to me lol, didn't mean for that happen but it looks really cool to me.
A other thing that I haven't tried before & I amsure I may do it again. Really happy with how stick pins & the charm turned out.
Here are some photo & video of both projects as always thanks for reading & watching bye for now Eileen.
This post is over due but I really enjoyed myself making these charms which are my first. I am sure if wont be my last.
So here is a list of sellers that I promised to on my video from Etsy. Are some of the shops that I found& buy charms from.
Here is the first of the supplies I used I used Tim Holtz swivel clasps. I used some jump rings charms & pliers.
Some of the charms I got from Michael's & as well as the jump rings. I got the swivel clasp from sscrapbook.com. The crystals are from taking a crystal flower apart. I do have to say one thing that make sure that you have smaller jumps as well as large ones because I made the same mistake lol. I only had a few so I was able to add a few to my charms
There is only two rules you should follow then making a charm 1) is to have fun & enjoy yourself. 2) have to pliers to open the jump rings makes it easier to open & close them. So here are the photos & video of the charms. As always thank you for reading & following along bye for now Eileen.
I am so super excited to share my latest creation with you all, Stick pins.
I know yes I've made them before but once again this is a other first for me cause this time I made them with beads & shells, go me lol.
I knew that I wanted to meek so e more so I got the sliver beads at Michael's but forgot to get a second pair of beads do looking around my apartment I found a shell necklace that I liked but don't use.
So here is a list of supplies
stick pins. I use the ones with pearls on top
beads that will fit the stick pin &/or shells with holes.
This is how I put them together
I either added some glossy accents then I added either a shell or silver bead to the pin.
I held the shell/bead in place until it dried
I repeated the those steps until I was happy with the look.
Here is the photo of the what the stick pins look like
