Perfectly Charming!

Have you ever made one of those projects that you just absolutely fall in love with?  I mean crazy in love with it!  This is one of those projects!  I love the new Stampendous SSC1177, Butterfly Charms Perfectly Clear Stamps Set!  It's perfect for so many different uses!  I created a card that I showcased on Tuesday and today I've got a jewelry project to share!


 Here I've stamped the butterflies and painted the first coat of DecoArt Dazzling Metallics Peacock Pearl Paint on some washers.  I stamped an extra set of images as a "just in case" but didn't need them.  I colored the butterflies with my Copics and cut them out.  I added a second coat of paint to the washers.  Once the paint was dry I wrapped two pieces of craft wire around each side of each washer wrapping the jump rings against the outer edge of the washers to attach them.




I connected the washers with more jump rings adding pearl charms from Tim Holtz idea-ology Baubles.  Using craft wire I added a pearl charm from the center washer as well.  I attached the chain, added a clasp and completed the process by adding the butterflies on top of the washers.





Here's a picture of it hanging around my daughter's neck.  I am so in love with this necklace!!  It came out exactly as I envisioned it!  I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you back soon.

Hugs,
Lea
