Today's heart shaped bezel is a salute to Valentine's Day.
This year at the Craft and Hobby Show in California, I fell in
love with this area in the Spellbinders booth. This is a new line called “A Gilded Life” which
is designed by mother and daughter team Debbie Murray and Shea Fragoso. Debbie gave me the gorgeous heart bezel to play with and I am very happy to share it with you today.
In January, I set a side a number of Christmas cards I had received. Part of the post-christmas clean up means going through all my cards and placing some into storage and some into my studio recycling box.
I cut the part of the card* I loved the most; this cute little couple. I glued the image into the bezel and was careful to seal the paper several time with my decoupage medium so I would not have a resin stain in any of the light or white ares.
The addition of rhinestone chain completed my heart. I then poured Jewelry Resin into the bezel.
A second layer of resin was used so that I could attach my hand charm and extra crystals.
Hope you have a wonderful day!
*A note from a fellow artist.
I do not sell any of the jewelry I create for this blog. I only make items for myself. Note that I cut and used the original card. I never make colour copies of artwork I do not have permission to use.
