Good morning, everyone! I have a quick project share for you this morning 🙂 Design team member, Marina Wilson created a fabulous Paris themed chunky charm and a pair of tulip earrings using some of the goodies from ButterBeeScraps. Here’s a look at the charm she created:
Marina started her charm using a large bronze lobster clasp (#CL168-B) and some bronze cable chain (#CH783-B) from the ButterBeeScraps shop. She then attached several small charms to the chain using jump rings. She added a couple of bead dangles, a wooden button, miniature glass bottle, miniature bronze bell, bottle cap, an Eiffel Tower charm, and a couple of keys. To finish the charm, Marina added a couple of small pieces of dyed seam binding and red fiber.
Here’s a look at the earrings that Marina created:
I absolutely LOVE the tulip bead caps (#CAP015-B) that Marina used to make these earrings! She first altered the tulip bead caps using some Vintage Quartz Patina by Ranger mixed with a little bit of the Patina Glaze. After the patina had dried, she used a buffing block to expose some of the bronze of the bead caps. Marina then hung several strands of bronze curb chain (#CH481-B) from the center of the tulip shaped bead cap, and added a single small rhinestone charm from the chain on each earring. On the top, Marina added a couple of filigree bead caps – one gold and one bronze (#CAP857-G and #CAP827-B) – on each earring.
Well, I hope you liked this project today.
