Floral Fantasy Necklace
If you like to create, you know that craft products from Martha Stewart are always beautiful, functional and innovative, including the new Martha Stewart Jewelry by Plaid Crafts line, available at Michaels.
I had the opportunity to play with these fun products recently and create a Floral Fantasy Necklace from scratch! I have not had the chance to make a lot of jewelry in my crafting adventures so this was super exciting for me. I appreciated how easy it was to use the products.
The package I received focused on Glazing and Glazing Techniques. Since I had these beautiful shades of Jewelry Glaze, I wanted to showcase how easy it was to use both glazing techniques. Here’s a list of items I used:
Martha Stewart Crafts™ Silicone Work Mat
Martha Stewart Crafts™ Glazing Brushes
Martha Stewart Crafts™ Round Nosed Pliers
Martha Stewart Crafts™ 18 inch Silver Chain
Martha Stewart Crafts™ Jewelry Glaze in Sea Green
Martha Stewart Crafts™ Jewelry Glaze in Pool
Martha Stewart Crafts™ Jewelry Glaze in Titanium
Martha Stewart Crafts™ Jewelry Findings Head Pins
Martha Stewart Crafts™ Jewelry Findings Jump Rings
Martha Stewart Crafts™ Czech Beads
Martha Stewart Crafts™ Cabochons
Martha Stewart Crafts™ Charms
Martha Stewart Crafts™ Settings
Martha Stewart Crafts™ Enamel Blanks
Martha Stewart Crafts™ Connectors
I wanted to use as many products as possible! Check out how effortless it was to create two different looks with the jewelry glaze:
Martha Stewart Jewelry Glazing Techniques
1. Using a cotton ball, wipe the piece you want to paint with rubbing alcohol to make the surface clean
2. Shake paint well
3. With a small brush, add paint the surface
1. Same process as the Opaque technique
2. Using a cloth, gently remove some of the paint
3. Let it dry
Since I had a combo of silver and gold pieces, I did a Antique Glaze in Titanium first, to tone down the gold. Then I did another Antique Glaze in Pool. Here are my pieces as they were drying.
Using a head pin, I added three of my favorite Czech Beads and added to the bottom of the yellow cabochon and silver setting.
Once all my pieces were dry, I played around with the spacing until I got it right. Then I attached the charms and enamel blanks with jump rings.
Just in time for spring and summer– it’s a Floral Fantasy Necklace. Thanks Martha Stewart Jewelry and Michaels. Now I just need to throw a garden party so I can show my new necklace off!
