Jewelry Making w/ Scrapbooking Supplies

Hello! I couldn't resist these scrapbooking brads knowing that I still had a silver bracelet blank from Rings and Things that I hadn't used. I picked these up at Michael's and used my 40% off coupon from Joann, Etc. What a great deal!

I clipped the little metal pieces off the back of the scrapbooking disks so they could easily be glued flat to the bracelet's disks. I was surprised that they were just slightly too big to use one on each of the bracelet disks. Luckily, I had a row of clear sticky backed gems left over that I had found while working on another project. I LOVE it when things work out that way! They fit perfectly on the bracelet disks in between each of the scrapbooking disks.

This is a simple project, the most difficult part was waiting for the glue to dry!!! It's still not quite dry, but I'm wearing it anyway. Is patience really that important in life or crafts??? : )

To answer that question myself, YES, it's pretty important in relation to glue... One of the little gems slid a tad bit causing a tiny stream of glue to find its way to the side of the gem... Ask and you receive an answer!

I removed 3 of the bracelet disks before gluing on the embellishments so it would fit my wrist and will be making earrings out of them with a couple of the remaining black and white brads. There were two in the package with the same design, but I guess they wouldn't really have to match.

I hope you all had a great weekend!!! Best wishes for a wonderful new week!

That's cute.

You can use your JoAnn coupons at Michael's? I don't think they do that here. It would be nice if they did because there are things at Michael's I'd like to have. JoAnn's has let me down lately.
