A Touch of Crystal Turquoise Temptation

Hi all sorry I haven’t blogged for a bit but back again to share with you a creation I have made this week. It’s a Memory Wire Bracelet and coordinating gift box.


I have used Rhinestone Beads, 6mm AB Crystal Bicones, 4mm silver pearls, Turquoise Silverlined disk and round beads, and shamballa heart beads on the pendants. I love memeory wire bracelets as they can be universal size to fit a range of wrist sizes. This bracelet is very sparkly in real life. I just love it.


Here’s the coordinating gift box.


The base of the box has been made using the Crafter’s Companion Boxer Board for the Ultimate Pro and Centura Pearl Snow White Card stock.

The flower was made using the Large and Small Rose, and leaf 1 Die’sire Dies from Crafter’s Companion. I embossed some Core’dinations cardstock using the a4 Embossing Folder which was inclusive with the Ebosser. I then cut two large rose and two small rose pieces from this, then used the sand it gadget to distress the embossing. After this I shaped the petals before quilling and building up the flower. Finally I made a beaded centre for the flower with a head pin, bead cap, crystal bead, flower cap and threaded this through the centre of the flower and secured on the back. I added some iridescent spray and sparkle to the flower. Next I die cut all four of the leaves on the die from silver mirror card. Finally I attached everything to the top of the box with Collall all purpose perminant glue.


Thanks very much for popping by and checking out my latest creation.
