Make a Rhinestone Necklace

I hate going to put on an outfit and realizing I don’t have the right jewelry to go with it! So, why not make the perfect piece to match. Thanks to May Art’s new Diamond Chain, it’s even easier to add a little bling to your wardrobe.

Make a Rhinestone Necklace

Cut a piece of paper with a peacock feather as the main image from the patterned paper using the Ovals One die. Apply embossing powder to the edges and heat set. Apply a thin line of glue and add glitter to the feather for detail. Glue to the inside of the matching bezel.

Since the Diamond Chain is articulated, it is easy to curve into shapes. Form an oval and glue inside the bevel.

Mix the Clear Cast Resin per the instructions and pour into bezel and let dry completely.

Make a Rhinestone Necklace

Run several strands of the ¼” silk ribbon, torn strips of the wider silk and metal chain through the top loop of the bezel. Tie the ribbons in a knot in the back of the necklace. Hang a key or other charm through the metal chain, tied on with ribbons. Finish with a charm hanging from the bottom of the bezel.
