Make instant pendants, magnets, more! Add our epoxy domes, or 3D Crystal Lacquer + glass domes. We hope you’re having a wonderful summer with some extra time to set aside for crafts and family. Let’s get started!
Wondering what do to with our Yard of Beads, or 10 Click here!. Anne took our 10-pack seed bead necklaces by the YARD assortments and added a few simple dangles – the results are really great. Make these necklaces your own with a few simple charms, beads, etc. Click on the sample to see three great color combos!
Look at these fun sets of wine charms Anne made with our word and message charms.
You can do the same with any of our photo charms, or themed charms below, with just a few wine charm rings.
Very easy, really fun! All new themed charms are in – wonderful for wine charms, charm bracelets, earrings and necklace inclusions – even scrapbooking ~ see them all here.
In praise of ginormous beads and return address labels. A little light went off in Anne’s head (it doesn’t take much!) when she came across some free return address labels - the result? Gorgeous wine charms! The outcasts from our Everything but the Kitchen Sink 1135 mix lead to the picnic tablecloth weights below.
Here’s some simple tablecloth weights she made from our Ginormous Beads (2 for $1) and our Crystal Ice Pendants, Tumbled Glass Beads, along with some headpins, eyepins, jump rings and a few curtain clips (from IKEA). What a fun hostess or neighbor gift! If you don’t need Ginormous Beads, you might want to check out our expanded selection of our customer favorites – our amazing Jewelry Maker’s Bead Mixes – color coordinated with spacer beads and matching pairs ~ just waiting for your next inspired idea.
Sweet Summer Earrings. Our friend and newest co worker Hannah made these breezy summer earrings with our ear wires, a few bicones and some of our new flower charms. Our new bicones mix contains all 4mm bicones in a rainbow of colors – just perfect for earring pairs and smaller scale jewelry projects, dangles, random rainbow designs.
Quickie last project idea: Instant inspiration from magazine pages -Kim made this Buddha pendant in a flash from a home decor magazine page. Magazine clippings are perfect for our cameo and collage pendants because the paper is already sealed - just use a small drop of 3D Crystal Lacquer directly on the magazine image, place your glass tile on top, slide tile on surface to remove bubbles, let dry. e6000 your completed art glass tile into the base.
This was a super simple version - very cool additions would be to find some inspiring words in the article, or grab some cool lettering or smaller pics/patterns - collage it. In addition to squares, we have a TON of new ovals and rounds - all in 4pc kits ready to use!
What else can you do with magazine, newspaper, wrapping paper and other things found in your recycling bin? Use our memory frame minis - the 2-sided acetate insert is your template - trim and wear. Any of our fine glass tiles can be made into a personalized pendant, with a little glue-on bail, a magnet, dab of our 3D Crystal Lacquer or Diamond Glaze or e6000 – you’ve got instant wearable art or fun customized fridge magnets.
