Jewelry Day 1

This is the first necklace that I altered today.  I think I spent less than $3.25 to make it.  The bling in the center was from a cheap adjustable ring was taken off to make it an embellishment.  It is removable so I can wear it as a "brooch" or even attach it to one of Baby K's headbands for her to wear.
Up close look.  In between the bottom layer and flowers is some tulle.!!!
This pin that I added was from when I was a part of a scrapbook kit of the month from Scarlet Lime.  I miss not doing that of these days I will sign up again.  So, there was no work or thought put into this one completely simple.
One thing that I did do to the fabric bottom piece was stiffen the fabric so that it was more sturdy.  I didn't have any official stiffener spray or, Leslie recommended using worked {I also dried it faster with a blow dryer}.  I pretty much soaked it, on a couple of pieces I did this process twice!
Here is Leslie at work.  Her necklace turned out FABULOUS!!!  If you notice in the bottom of this picture, she is using a clothes pin to keep the little rosette together while it was drying.
She added a little bit of tulle behind the looks amazing on!!!
I have more coming, so watch for it!!!
