Last week I showed you how to make a faux rusty bracelet using hardware. I’m using pieces from this kit I found in the toy section at Dollar Tree, and teaching you how you can make FOUR different pieces of jewelry by using this single $1 box. Last week’s piece was a bit grungy, this week I’m going with a more sleek look.
- Metal toy kit, $1
- Jewelry glue or Super Glue, on hand
- Embossing ink and powders, on hand
- Chain, on hand
Step three: Add the embossing powder to the piece. Shake off the excess, and heat it to melt the powder onto the metal. Let it cool and don’t touch it yet, as the metal will be extremely hot!
Step four: Add a chain to the charm after it has cooled. I used an old bracelet. This would also make a pretty pendant for a necklace. With the added color, it hardly looks like hardware anymore!
Two pieces of jewelry down, two more to go! Check back next week to learn how to make the last two pieces of hardware jewelry in this series.
