Frozen Inspired Necklace

     Hello fellow craft enthusiasts! Today I have a wonderful project to share with you. But first I have a confession to make. I lost my mojo. Yes, its true. For weeks now I have been trying to come up with something unique. Nothing, nada not even a flicker of an idea. I have been so busy making Elsa and Anna dresses for 18" dolls that my head was struck on FROZEN. I tried to let it go, I really did but, try as hard as I did, I still could not come up with an idea. Sparkle and bling, snow and ice, sparkle and bling oh Mary just let it go.
     So I pulled out my remaining supplies from the July Crafty Kit that Jess had sent me. After pouring over the goodies, there it was.... a bottle cap.

     At last some inspiration. Why let it go? Not me, so I decided to make a necklace of Elsa and Anna! First I googled an image of Elsa and Anna. Then I sized it in my Sil Cameo and printed it on Square 1 printable vinyl. After cutting it to the size of the bottle cap I added it to the cap and covered it with Mod podge.

     Of coarse you need Sparkle so I used some stickles on the edge of the image. Once it was dry I added an epoxy topper but you could also use triple thick or any jewelry coating. I used a piece of 1/8" ribbon and threaded it through the pearl beads with silver spacers. This particular bottle cap did not have a hole in it so I used a metal tool by Ranger. It still needed more sparkle so I thought, what about snow?

     Yup, that looks better. I did add a little more glitter while the snow was still wet. All that was left was to add a magnetic clasp. I think I have my mojo back!!!
