Retired - Jeweled Bee Bracelet

PROJECT B3085
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Intermediate
Let the Swarovski crystal flatbacks sparkle on your wrist with this brass bracelet featuring a pretty Nunn Design bumble bee stamping.
Instructions
You will need a paint brush for this project.
  1. Before beginning, please watch the videos on How to Use Vintaj Patinas and Glaze and How to Use a Magical Pick.
  2. Next, using your paintbrush, carefully paint the front focal of your antiqued brass bracelet finding with Vintaj white patina. Wait till dry, and paint another layer.
  3. Once dry, add a dab of E-6000 glue onto the center of your focal and carefully place your Nunn Design bee stamping onto the glue. See photo for exact placement.
  4. Next, begin adding tiny drops of HypoCement glue onto the spaces between your bee stamping. Use your Magical Pick to pick up Swarovski Crystal flatbacks and place onto each dab of glue. I placed 29 flatbacks onto the focal.
  5. Set aside to dry and enjoy!
