Quick, Easy & Cute Jewelry

See, I told you I would have a project soon! I've been trying to pick up things for Christmas all year. And I thought I'd try making a few things, too. So when I won a gift certificate to PhotoJewelryMaking.com from So You Thnk You're Crafty, I knew right away what I wanted. Bails! Why don't any local craft stores carry these?


Anyway... I started with some cabachons that I got from a shop on Etsy called Troxies. I think they are so cute! And you can find them in lots of colors and different flowers.



Then I used some ring blanks I also got from PhotoJewelryMaking.com.



And my bails.


And some trusty old E-6000.



Just put a dab of glue on the bail or blank and attach the cabachon. And you're done!



Aren't they cute?









All you need now is a ball chain and you're done! I plan on giving these to Layla for Christmas. I thought I could use one chain and she can change out the pendants.



See? Quick, easy & cute!
