So i wanted to try something new, and make a special lady in my life a necklace! May be a small project, but its packing lots of Shimmerz!!!
 The chain has been covered in a mixture of Jilted Jade and Frosty's Got the Blues Shimmerz. These little paint pots are extra thick and creamy! took to the metal so well!
 I dyed the seam binding with Olive Branch Spritz and Abominable Blue Vibez.
Inside of the metal feather charm I sprayed some paper with 24 Karat Vibez and Cotton Candy Spritz.
 The resin heart from the Ingvild Bolme Shabby Chic Treasures was gessoed, sprayed with Shimmeringz Concrete and Pop Art Pink Vibez. Then dabbed with a bit of gesso again.
The corner resin piece from Ingvild Bolme was painted with Frosty's Got the Blues Shimmerz , then sprayed with Shimmeringz Concrete and heat set until it was baked on!

I had fun playing with some jewelry! Hope you like it!

Next up is Lydell's Blog
Thanks for playing along with us!! Have fun, and be inspired!
