Lucky Green Necklace - Epiphany Crafts

I told you I had more St. Patrick's Day crafts coming! I was challenged by Epiphany Crafts to make something along the lines of green and/or lucky. I haven't made any jewelry with my Epiphany Crafts supplies lately, so I decided to make an accessory to wear on St. Patrick's Day. I wanted to be able to wear it for other occasions, too, so I designed this necklace with versatility in mind:


First, I spray painted the silver-toned charm gold. I made an epoxy with the Round 25 tool and a patterned paper by Websters Pages. I loved the yellow rose and deep green leaves! Right up my alley :).


I attached beads to a gold chain, graduating in size and switching up the colors, finishes, and shapes.


I know this necklace is going to get a lot of wear, on St. Patrick's Day and beyond. What will you be wearing to avoid pinches on St.Patrick's Day?

Have a good one! Tessa

  2. Love this, Tessa! When I first saw the picture I was hoping you were adding these to your etsy shop so I could buy one!

  3. Love! This might be a silly question, but where do you purchase your jewelry supplies? beads, chains, etc. Love this! Like Lisa, I would buy one to wear next Sunday too!

    1. Well, darn! I should have made a few more ;).

      A lot of my jewelry supplies come from Blue Moon Beads, sister company to DCWV. Because I design for DCWV, I've been lucky to get to work with the jewelry supplies, too. Otherwise, I hit up my local JoAnn or Michaels.
