Get your creative juices flowing
All Buttered Up
by: Rochelle Kilmer
I fell in love with the free-form ovals - especially in the yellow jade. I wanted to add a little bling, so that is where the Crystal Dorado and Antique Brass pearls fell into play.
- I took my softflex and crimped an end with a wire guardian and one end of the clasp on.
- I then made all my dangles. I mixed crystals and pearls on headpins - some longer, some shorter. I made the loops with the 1-step Looper.
- I strung 1 4 mm pearl, a jade oval, then 7 headpins. I put 7 headpins on a jumpring to get the clustered look. Then I added a jade oval, and repeat until finished.
- I finished off with another 4 mm pearl, before crimping with a wire guardian and the other end of the clasp.
- All done!
