DIY Super Easy Bead Charm
Making a charm really cannot get much easier than this one. I recently purchased Margot Potter’s 1 Pound Luxury Bead Soup Mix and as soon as Ansley saw the neon beads she instantly claimed them as hers. This bead mix is filled with all kinds of awesome beads. When I poured all the beads onto my work table I was thrilled with the wide assortment.
Ansley decided she wanted a double sided charm so I placed the smaller of the neon beads on one side and once the Diamond Glaze is fully dried I will fill the back side of this charm with the larger neon beads shown above. To create this charm I used Diamond Glaze, Neon Beads, a sprinkle of Iridescent Glitter and a My Jewelry Shoppe 3/4″ Circle Double Sided Bezel purchased from Hobby Lobby.
All you need to do is place the beads inside the bezel, pour Diamond Glaze on top of the beads making sure to completely cover the beads. Keep a pin handy to pop any bubbles that occur. BUT in my case I LOVED the bubble cluster so much I left them there. I really wish I could recreate this bubble cluster again and again. Now if it were just one or two bubbles that would bug the dickens out of me and I would have to pop them but there is just something about this little cluster that I love. While the Diamond Glaze is still wet sprinkle a bit of iridescent glitter on top to add a little sparkle. It looks amazing.
Once the Diamond Glaze is fully dried turn the bezel over and repeat the same steps to finish the back side of your charm. I’ve got my fingers crossed I can get another bubble cluster like the first one.
FYI… the reason my charm looks a bit cloudy is because the Diamond Glaze was not fully dried when I took the photos. Once dry the Diamond Glaze will be crystal clear.
