Jewelry for CTMH/Operation Smile Silent Auction

Here are two more contributions I made for the Operation Smile Silent Auction being held at Close To My Heart's covention this weekend in Washington, DC. (You can read more by scrolling down to yesterday's post.)

The first is a pendant using of all things a washer you can find at the hardware store. I adhered a piece from the Silhouette paper pack and then covered it with Liquid Glass. Before it dried, I added the tiny Just Blooms paper flower and Sparkle. After it dried, I added a few more layers of Liquid Glass. (Allow drying time between each layer!) Finally, I strung it on (non-CTMH) hemp.
My second project uses CTMH buttons and hemp. It was so fun to make! You need about three times the hemp as you want for your finished bracelet if you tie a knot between each button. (You have to tie a knot between the two-hole buttons to keep them in place, so I decided to knot between each button.) The cool part is that the button on the right slides into the loop on the left to fasten the bracelet. Three of the buttons are clear, but I adhered some Unforgettable paper to them to match the Basic craft buttons.

Now I need to make some of these projects for myself...
If you're interested in learning how, consider hosting a CTMH jewelry workshop with me!

Saw your items at the Silent Auction and really liked your unique use of the CTMH products. And I think my favorite is the large washer covered with the Silhouette papers. It is very striking.

I think a necklace workshop is in order! Have you found a sticky boy?
(I've been following convention on fb)
