It is good to be posting after a long weekend! I spent a portion of my time working on some really fun jewelry. I hope you like this piece which was inspired by a 1 inch by 12 inch strip of rub on's found in Claudine's new Rub On and Vinyl Crafts kit.
This has to be one of the sweetest kit ever produced!
I love when Claudine draws houses. I want to move right in.
In the kit there are three rows of houses to choose from.
I rubbed the light blue houses onto these very thin flat beads. I selected houses that would fit and I actually placed an image on both sides of the bead.
I was so happy with the results!
In order to ensure that the images would stay adhered permanently I brushed on a glaze of Envirotex Lite Jewelry Resin. Some of you may know I am the author of Resin Crafts Blog as resin is my favorite medium!
I had an idea for my necklace and started puling out some beads that would look nice together.
And then I called in THE FINISHER. Nancy is my one friend who I will allow to help me. I really have no choice. She monitors my stress level and when she notices I am going a little crazy...she just comes over. And she finishes all my "works in progress." Yes, I know. I am lucky to have "a Nancy." I am not telling you where she lives for fear you might borrow her! She is the fresh eyes who can see what I want to achieve and then just makes it happen.
She can model the finished pieces too!
So there you have it. Claudine Hellmuth rub ons to super beads!
