Best for Last: More Jewelry for CTMH/Operation Smile Silent Auction

Here are my final contributions to the Operation Smile silent auction. (Please scroll down to see the rest of my contributions if you haven't already peeked at them.) You may remember this box from way back in June (it is part of the auction item), and now here is what is inside... entire set of handmade jewelry using Close To My Heart products.

I have to give my Mom a huge THANKS for helping me put these projects together.

To begin, I made paper beads using the Emporium paper pack (with the assistance of tooth picks, an egg carton, and lots of mod podge). I made small Twilight and Sweet Leaf beads, plus larger Sweet Leaf beads.

The pendant was a bit of a challenge. First, I had to make a back piece for the Foundry Bookplate. Then I began decorating it and filling it in with Liquid Glass. A Sweet Leaf spiral clip from the Cozy My Accents collection serves as a "leaf." Can you see the Glitz Glue on the Just Blooms paper flower? The center of the flower is a pewter Filigree Charm (minus the brad) with a Sparkle in the very center. Liquid Glass preserves the entire center of the pendant from the elements (with mod podge to protect the back).

The coordinating earrings

Thanks for looking! Hopefully I will get a set made for myself one day that I can show you in person!
We're heading home from a wonderful time in DC. I'll have plenty to post when I return, so be sure to come back often. Thanks for stopping by!
