We will be giving away one of the STAEDTLER Sweet Summer packages on Monday to a lucky reader who has joined in and commented on this weeks projects...
See the bottom of this post for details.
But there will also be three bonus giveaways!!!
I will be picking three names from the followers who have commented as a thank you to my peeps.
The prizes will be the finished jewelry sets you've seen posted this week.
Good luck and thanks so very very much for reading!
To complete this project you will need:
Clear ink pad
jewelry findings, chain, jump rings, lobster claw,head pins, 22 gauge wire,
Tools you'll need to complete this project:
Water in a spray bottle
Rolling pin for clay use only
Medium grit nail file
Drill with fine drill bit
Three in one jewelry pliers, double round nose, flat and wire cutters.
Roll out your STAEDTLER fimo effect clay to a thickness of 1/8th of an inch and spritz with water. Stamp with the small cameo frame hard enough to make an impression in the clay.
Use a craft knife to cut away any un-stamped clay and a toothpick to make a hole in the top of each piece to later hang them. Bake the pieces in a preheated 230 degree oven for 20 minutes and allow them to cool. Load the small cameo frame stamp with clear ink and stamp the pieces again. I used Stampendous Detail Capri embossing powder on the clear inked pieces and re-baked them for ten minutes in the 230 degree oven. I allowed the pieces to cool again.
I coated the center cabochon of each piece with STAEDTLER fimo liquid gel and then sprinkled with a variety of Stampendous glitters and embossing powders. I re-baked the pieces again in the preheated 230 degree oven for ten minutes and let them cool.
They were interesting but I wanted even more bling.
I added a drift of STAEDTLER fimo liquid gel onto each middle section and sprinkled glass glitter onto the uncured liquid clay. I re-baked the piece a final time at the same temp for ten minutes and let them cool completely.
I used the jewelry findings and pliers to assemble the earrings. They're very swishy and will add a little pop of colour and glitz to my summer wardrobe. Seriously loving these products together. Hope you all get a chance to try them all out!
