Soft Flex Ornaments with Capture Chain
Nealay loves Christmas as much as we do. If you love elegant homemade Christmas ornaments, this video is a must see. SilverSilk components and chain make every project majestic! This jewelry design kit is fabulous. It captures the essence of Christmas but it does not rely on traditional colors. You will be able to create festive jewelry that looks unique and funky!
Let’s travel into Toyland for a few moments and unravel the magic of the latest SilverSilk & More kit. We’ll be working with Soft Flex Beading Wire to assemble a fantastic little turnip shaped ornament. We’ll be doing some crimping with Magical Crimping Pliers and I’ll share a smart tip with you that you can only learn from this video. Join me and you’ll be making ornaments yourself too!
This homemade Christmas ornament idea is perfect as an ornament - or adornment. A little bead stringing wire will hold the beads. You can add an ornament hook and place them on the tree or add them to SilverSilk Capture Chain or Soft Flex Beading Wire and wear them to the office. They make an incredible accent to any ugly sweater party at the office!
This lariat certainly looks like Christmas jewelry. But the colors are ambiguous enough that you could wear this any time of the year! Wouldn't a frosty necklace be fun in the summer? Nobody has to know the color palette you used was fashioned by elves.
Absolutely stunning! Nealay has a wonderful and thoughtful jewelry sense. Wouldn't this be an exquisite addition to your tree or jewelry collection?
