I’ve always loved roaming the non-jewelry aisles to find materials to use for necklaces, bracelets, etc. The scrapbook aisle is perfect for this, and really opens up a whole new batch of possibilities. I personally don’t scrap book, but you can find some useful supplies for fashion projects in this section. For this project, I used flower embellishments to create a bright and fun statement necklace. Keep reading to see how I made it!
– 7 cameo settings **
– Chain of your preference
– Medium sized jump rings (at least 4), jewelry clasp, miniature jump rings (4-5 mm should work fine)
– Round nosed jewelry pliers, scissors, strong craft glue
** Obviously, you can use less or more than 7 pieces for this. It’s up to you! The flower embellishments I used are by the company Recollections, which can be purchased at Michael’s for a few dollars in a wide variety of colors. As for the settings, there are many types out there, but this project requires
this exact style. They will most likely be under the name “round lace”
or something similar. I chose 20mm round settings in oxidized brass – bought here – but you can also go for oval settings, or choose a different type of metal.
