My first bag charms
So, as promised, here are photos of the first bag charm dangles I made using the fimo beads I made last week plus some other beads and bits from my little stash of jewellery findings I have now collected :).
The black and pink one is bigger and the images on the black fimo bead was made by stamping into it - the skull was from a Greeting farm set and the floral pattern was from a lace stamp by Hero arts. Once baked, I just buffed it up with a bit of metallic acrylic paint.
The little cupcakes and ice cream one is a lot smaller. I turned the green midget gem bead into an ice cream sundae by adding some flower cup beads below it for the glass and a red bead on top for a cherry!
I just need more practice with the pliers and making loops with the wire but it is very addictive not to mention so much gorgeous sparkly and glittery beads out there - almost as appealing as stamps and paper pads :o
I gave these to my sister for her birthday at the weekend and I think she liked them! My niece now wants me to make some mini sushi beads and make a bracelet for her as she loves her Sushi. I've seen some fantastic ones on etsy so will have a play and see what I can come up with.
I haven't been neglecting my cardmaking but will save that for tomorrow's post.
Thanks for dropping by.
