Well hi welcome to my little blog. Just my little corner of craftiness, sewing, and refashioning. I am also a newly gluten free eater so you have a little bit of recipes mixed in here.

Paint pen necklace redo: blue and gold

I was inspired by this necklace I saw on Pinterest. I had a bunch of these blue  beads that looked similar to these. And this might be a great way to use my beads.

Problem is I don't have any gold ones. 

But I had a great idea... I had a gold paint pen!! Oh yeah I am so doing this!

So I colored several beads with my gold paint pen, letting dry between coats. 

Next time to string my necklace. I needed clasp, crimp beads, wire, 3 hold bars, gold filler beads, and some jump rings to git. 

So I just strung the beads starting with 2 blue followed by 1, 2, or 3 gold beads. Then blue to finish. It did take some time to get it to hang right. But I also did this by adjust the small beads on the ends. It did take some fiddling. But simply crimp bead the ends. 

Then I added a lobster clasp and some chain to the ends to adjust how the necklace sits. Always a plus. 

Done! Not bad for a paint pen necklace huh? I had everything on hand. Yay for using what I have!
