Hello and thank you for visiting today.
We can find inspiration everywhere! I was leafing through old Anthropologie catalogs and I saw this:
I found all the elements in my jewelry-making box: a hook and chain (from an old bag), a plastic round pendant, beads strung together with pin head pins/eye pins with the help of pliers.
I first made the initial on the pendant. This can be done in many different ways like marker calligraphy or a computer print out using a favorite font. I cut out a letter from a magazine and glued it on the pendant. Then I added a layer of this dimensional glue for a glossy, glassy dome finish.
I attached the beads on the chain. It has a good mixture of faux pearls, diamonds, and crystals.
I added some pink beads because I thought it needed more color.
I added the initial pendant to personalize my bag charm. TADA!
Make one for yourself and another for your best friend.
