I covered it with aluminum tape

Hi all!
Teri here, and I'm back yet again at the GCD Studios blog.
Heidi challenged us this month to make some kind of jewelry.
I came up with this necklace here.

What is pretty cool about this neckace is that the base of it is all Chipart chipboard. Ok, well, other than the ball chain. ;)
The oval is a piece of Chipart chipboard. I covered it with patterned paper from the Homespun Chic collection and sealed it up with Mod Podge.
The tag on top of it is chipboard, too. I covered it with aluminum tape I got at the hardware store. You can similar tape in the Electrical department.
Then, I used the Chipart tool to spell "soar" on it and add a few flowers at the top. Once I did that, I lathered on a coat of pink paint and Mod podge. Once dry, I sanded it with a nail file to rough it up.
The bird is also chipboard. I used the Chipart tool to add a couple designs to it. I painted the bird pink, let it dry and then roughed it up with a nail file.
When finished, I poked a hole through the whole thing and hung it on a chain.
I think this would make a really fun pin, too. Instead of a chain, tie a ribbon to the top of it and glue a pin back on the back of it.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today.
I'll be back again soon!

  1. Love the layering too, but what section of the hardware store did you find the tape? I checked our local store and they didn't have it, so my next try will be a big store like Lowes.
