I have always found comfort and happiness when I was busy designing and creating. I have many interests and talents and often I am torn when deciding which art medium to work creatively in. Decorative painting is my first love; however, I also enjoy stenciling, jewelry making, sewing, crochet, needlework of all kinds, cooking, card making, faux finishes, decorating and gardening. Working in the craft and hobby industry for many years, I have enjoyed the pleasures of traveling, teaching, and sharing with others basic crafting how-tos! Currently, I am employed as the Marketing Education Director at Plaid. My career journey to this day, is still allowing me the gift of sharing with others the joys of crafting and finding their creative spirits! I hope that our creative paths may cross one day. Until then... happy creating!

Instructions

Necklace

  1. Squeeze a small amount of jewelry glue out onto your silicone work mat. Using a toothpick, pick up a small amount of glue and apply it in the center of a rhinestone setting. Drop the rhinestone into the setting and adjust it to center and level it in the setting. Do this with all rhinestone settings. Allow to dry.
  2. When dry, fold the small metal prong over each rhinestone using the flat nose pliers. Note: rhinestones can be set in the rhinestone settings without using the jewelry glue; however, using the glue will give you a stronger bond.
  3. Lay the bezel clear chain out before you. Position the seven marquis rhinestone sets between each clear bezel bead. Connect the rhinestone setting to the chain using silver jump rings.
  4. Next determine the length you want your necklace when worn. Add the appropriate length of fat oval silver chain to each side of the bezel clear chain using a jump ring to connect the two.
  5. Add the braid toggle clasp to the chain ends using silver jump rings.

Earrings

  1. Add the pear shaped rhinestones to the floral rhinestone setting using the same technique as described above. Do not forget the tiny rhinestone in the center of the setting.
  2. Using a silver jump ring, attach the marquis rhinestone drop to the floral rhinestone setting.
  3. Adhere the silver earring post to the back of the floral rhinestone setting using jewelry glue.
Tip: Be creative and change the colors of rhinestones to color coordinate with your apparel or create a special seasonal jewelry ensemble.
