The Pirate Pretties Jewelry Challenge was on my list of Challenges and Inspirations for this month. Angela, the hostess, prompted us to make a purse or bookbag charm with both red and pink. It should also include either silver or rose gold and optionally charms or dangles. If you've been around here much, you know that pink isn't one of my favorites. And, combining red with it felt even more challenging. To top it off, I have never made purse or bookbag charms and didn't know where to begin. Fortunately, I happened to have a set of swivel clasps* in my stash (in SILVER - yay).
Of course, I created a video to show you how to work with the shrink plastic and add the seed beads with waxed cord onto the clasp.
It really is a super easy project and could be fun for just about any age group.
Let me know if you have any questions at all about the process!
So, have you picked a word of the year too?
