Making a Necklace As a Gift for Handmade Holidays

Video showing how a novice jewelry maker used Gelli prints to make a colorful necklace!


I’m trying my hand at jewelry for the 4th Annual Handmade Holidays blog hop!   There’s lots of inspiration so be sure to check it all out including the fabulous giveaway from the very generous sponsors!!

If I’m making something, it usually involves a bit of color and this necklace is no exception!  These may not be traditional holiday colors but these are colors I think my friend will love when she gets this necklace as a gift.

This Gelli print, made using techniques from my One Pull Wonders workshop, started it all.


Thanks to the Sizzix die, asymmetrical rings, and Maria McGuire’s Doodle It Inchie stencil these ready for the Ice Resin!
