Key to the Queens Heart

For Pink Saturday today, I've created something different....it's a jewelry set that's fit for a Queen. The set has three pieces: a necklace,  a rosette pin and big chunky ring. I had fun playing with my Ranger UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel) and my melting pot. I don't use it as much as I really should cause it makes a bit of a mess.....

Instead of putting just a paper image in the bottom of a pendant shape like I was taught by Suze Weinberg, I also added a chipboard piece. These chipboard pieces shaped like Fleur de Lis are painted a rosy pink and brown then flecked with gold. I poured the melted UTEE into forms and edged them with golden foil tape. For the pin, I sprayed printed crepe paper  with Glimmer mist to make the outer rosette. For the necklace, I added rich pink ribbon and a gold key to the Queen's heart.

Hope you'll be given the royal treatment this week.
always, gerri

  3. I'm so glad blogger fixed my comment forms...This jewlery set is great! I like how you set each piece apart with a differt styling. I've had a melting pot for about a year and a half but have never used it. I may have to be pulling that out! Thanks for the inspiration, Gerri...as always.
