New Necklaces & Tag for Anna!

Hi, everyone!

I just wanted to show you guys some necklaces my friend Anna made and sent to me. She makes custom jewelry and also mini book charms, so check her out! I've worn all of these on UStreams, so you may have already seen them, but I thought I'd post them here. :D


Necklace with Matching Bracelet:

She told me she didn't want anything in return, because she's such a sweetie. The necklaces were so pretty, though, that I had to send something. So I put a little goodie bag of lace together for her & I also made her this tag because shes a Twilight fan:

I started with a #8 manilla shipping tag, and used the Tim Holtz distressing tool and foam to cover it with "Fired Brick" Distress Ink. Then I sprayed the entire thing with "Red Velvet" Glimmer Mist. Once that dried it was time to emboss!

I tokk the Tim Holtz "Shattered Glass" embossing folder and covered one side of it in Coolor Box Fluid Chalk ink in "Blackbird" and then ran the tag through my BigShot. That created the black and red background design. Then I added American Crafts Thickers "By the Yard" letters in white. The letters spell out "Twihard" which is a combination of the words "Twilight" and "Diehard" and is my word for a really hardcore Twilight fan.

I also added black lace, black bling & a black rose trim. Then I made a charm dangle for the top, added a bow & called it done! Because it was about vampires, I made sure to include a skull on the charm dangle.

I hope you enjoyed the tag & the jewlery!
