Even though it is not Winter yet, it sure feels like it. We have a cold weather front moving in and there is some talk of snow! It is the perfect weather to stay inside, decorate for the holidays and make gifts. Today I am going to show you how to make a snowflake jewelry set that can be put in a card set using Globecraft &Piccolo products.
Supplies for earrings and necklace:
2 packages of Globecraft & Piccolo Snowflake Accents
Globecraft & Piccolo Pure Sparkle Silver Glitter
Globecraft & Piccolo Glastique Gloss Finishing Glaze
Globecraft & Piccolo Titanium White 3D Enamel Gel
Piccolo Easy Grip Tweezers
Pale Blue Sticker gems
2 Earring wires
Flat nose pliers
Carefully remove all of the snowflake Piccolos from the chipboard frame. Coat one side of all of the snowflake Piccolos with Titanium White 3D Enamel Gel. Let dry. Now coat the other side of only 1 large snowflake, 2 mediums, 2 smalls and 2 minis. The pieces with both sides coated will be for the jewelry and the snowflakes with only one side with enamel will be used for the card (or other projects if you like).
Now apply two more coats of Glastique Gloss Glaze to the snowflakes. Let dry. The layers of glaze will give the snowflakes a glass like finish and help the glitter “pop”.
Now apply Glastique Gloss Glaze to two of the small snowflakes. Carefully position the mini snowflakes in a manner to create a enclosed space to put a silver jump ring through. Let dry. Go back and seal the areas where the snowflakes touch with Glastique. Let dry.
Open up oval jump rings and put through the small triangles in 2 of the medium, the space in small and mini glued pieces and 1 large snowflakes; close jump rings.
Cut two lengths of silver chain (1/2 inch long) and attach to the small and mini snowflakes glued together with a small jump ring. Add another jump ring on top and attach to the earring wire with the medium snowflake. Cut 16 inches of silver chain and string the large snowflake on it. Attach jewelry clasp to chain with small jump rings.
