Butterfly Jewelry Piece

My second Birthday Jewelry Piece had a Butterfly/Dragonfly theme and was made for my friend, JoAnn...hence this butterfly landing on a sunflower.

Supplies used:
   Stamp Set: Elements of Style
   CS:  Whisper White, Summer Sun, Chocolate Chip
   Accessories:  Beautiful Butterflies Die, Flower-Daisies #2 Die, 3/4" Circle Punch, 
            Rhinestone Jewels, Pearl Beads, 24g Gold Wire, Crystal Effects, E6000 Glue, 
            Yellow Stickles, Brown Stickles

You should see how JoAnn chose to display her 8 pieces.  She found a metal butterfly sculpture, put magnets on the back of each piece and attached them to it.  What a wonderful idea JoAnn!!!!  :)

Okay, here is the wonderful metal sculpture JoAnn bought to display her pieces.  She has four pieces on each wing.  Isn't it great!!!!!   :)

Happy Stamping!  Judy  :)

Steampunk Birthday Project

My first Steampunk jewelry project was to create a pin for my friend, Dawn, for her birthday earlier this month.  I used a watch case, lots of crystal effects, key charm, Austrian Crystals, Green gems, watch innards and patience.  It has wings, gears and a flower charm glued onto the back.  I love how it turned out.  It was hard to get a good view of the front since it has a glass front but you get the idea.  

Here is a picture of the back of the piece.  Dawn received 8 different Steampunk themed jewelry pieces.  I can't wait to see how she displays them.

Happy Stamping!  Judy  :)
