After creating several of the shabby roses that you can see in a former tutorial post, I had the idea of making these into necklaces and earrings. They turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself! A local craftstore was closing, to my chagrin, so I bought a lot of my materials on closeout. The bases are made of flat wooden disks. I got a rather large bag with three different sizes, and each works well as a base. First, I glued some tulle scraps and some cute leaves in strategic positions, then the tulle spirals. On the back of the wooden disk, I glued a flat gold charm through which to loop your chain.
You can find these on Etsy.
Oh, and I still have glass pendants to send to the next two people who sign up as a follower! I am so excited that one I have given away went to a lady in Slovakia.
