Retired - Ruthie Bracelet

PROJECT B1088
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Intermediate
A hand painted dimensional brad is attached to a bracelet plate and given an interesting, distressed look in this bracelet featuring Vintaj components.
Instructions
You will also need a paint brush to complete this project.
  1. To begin, please watch the video: How to Use Vintaj Patinas and Glaze.
  2. Following what you learned in the video, paint marble white patina onto the swirly part of a Vintaj natural brass nouveau waves brad. Then paint emerald green patina onto the remainder of the brad (the top side only). Allow these to dry somewhat, and then use a Vintaj Relief Block to give a distressed appearance.
  3. Use the relief block on the front side of a Vintaj arte metal oval 2 hole blank to give it a distressed appearance.
  4. Position the brad over the oval blank and punch a hole where each prong of the brad will go through the blank. Then insert the brad prongs through the holes and fold them in on the back side of the blank.
  5. Open the links in your chain like jump rings to separate two 2.75" pieces.
  6. Using the last link as you would a jump ring, hang one piece of chain from each end of the blank.
  7. Place a 6mm emerald crystal bicone bead onto a head pin and create a simple wire loop. Hang this dangle from the chain just to the right of the blank.
  8. Place one of the jump rings from a Vintaj Natural Brass fold-over clasp kit onto one end of your bracelet.
  9. Use a second of these jump rings to attach a fold-over clasp to the other end, putting the jump ring through the opening closer to the hinged side.
