I was inspired by a necklace I received as a Christmas prezzie which has a lovely sparkly feather hanging sideways with a little dangley section at one end, so thought I would try and recreate it my way with..................UTEE :D
I painted the small chipboard leaves with Jenni Bowlin brown sugar acrylic paint.
I added holes to three of the leaves with a hand drill and smoothed it off with a nail file.
When dry spritzed them with Cosmic Shimmer mist in Golden Mint and left it to dry.
I then wrapped around artist wire creating a loop at the small end and leaving a nice long piece at the other end so I could use it as a handle for dipping in the utee.
I inked a Viva decor swirl stamp with versamark ink and put to one side
I heated some clear utee in my meltpot - you could do this with e foil tray if you wanted but heat from below so that your utee doesn't blow everywhere. When completely melted I added a little bit of Cosmic Shimmer utee in Tropic Pearl and Lapis Jade and swirled together with the end of a brush.
I dipped the chipboard shapes in until completely covered then removed and placed on an acrylic block, while hot I pressed in the swirls stamp to create some texture.
I trimmed the edges of the utee with small sharp scissors and a craft knife until I was happy with the shape then smeared on some Distress Stickles in bundled sage and antique bronze.
I then slid it on to a neckwire I bought in my local craft shop and added more wire to hold it in place, added a few trimmings and some dangley beads :D
The second necklace was exactly the same except I drilled a hole in one end and threaded wire through to create my loop.
I love the texture of the stamped utee and the added sparkle of the cosmic shimmer utee :D
Hope they inspire you to have a go with utee - its so much fun :D
