I have been making jewelry with my stamping and scrapbooking supplies. Who knew you could use chipboard for a matching set of earrings and a necklace pendant??? I'm totally hooked on this new hobby and spent some extra dollars at the craft store on jewelry making supplies so that I can keep going with these. I'm having to much fun with all these new ideas spinning around in my head.
I got the idea to create these earrings and necklace from a new book that I just reviewed on Craft Critique. You can check out the full review here: "Beyond the Bead" book review. There are quite a few more samples of other jewelry that I made on the review.
I used embossing techniques, ink sponging and Crystal Effects as a lacquered finish on my chipboard circles. The Dasher stamp was used on all 3...I used it for the pendant, but also used the antlers to get the design on my earrings. They were so incredibly easy to make and this is the first project I'll be showcasing as part of my "8 Weeks of Christmas" emails to my mailing list.
