Not only have I been making cuff style bracelets but I’ve also been making some cute simply stated 24″ necklaces. This necklace is what I call a dressed up version of a dog tag. Since I like my items to have a distressed feel before stamping my word I gave the metal tag several whacks with my brass hammer. Once I the silver metal tag was banged up a bit I metal stamped the word smile onto the silver metal tag using what is now my favorite letter stamp set 3mm Newsprint lowercase by ImpressArt. I applied some Mustard Seed Distress Paint with my finger into the stamped letters then instantly wiped away the excess with a paper towel. Next I wire wrapped some beads to create a charm and BAM just like that I was done. I think this will look too cute worn with a boho chic or casual summer outfit. This necklace is available for purchase in my Etsy Shop, it’s $14.95 + $5.80 flat rate shipping.
NOTE: once Distress Paint dries it is on for good so you do not want to play around just apply and wipe off.
This is another simply stated 24″ necklace. I created the heart accent then wire wrapped a clear vintage iridescent bead which adorns the heart beautifully. This too will look adorable worn with a boho chic or casual summer outfit. It too is available for purchase, it’s $9.95 + $5.80 flat rate shipping.
