Making Journal Charms

The members of the FJJP have requested a tutorial on Making Journal Charms. So I pulled my supplies and made a video showing how I make Journal Charms. These can also be added to a keychain, a purse or even on a necklace.

Making Journal Charms

Supplies used for Making Journal Charms
Round Nose Pliers – I use two pairs.
Flush Cutters
The chain can be any color, you just want the rings big enough to attach jump rings through. 1.5 inches of chain
3/4 inch Lobster Clasp or 20mm
Jump rings – I found a kit on Amazon that has a ton of different sizes.
Head Pins
Eyepins 2 inch
Various beads
Charms

When making journal charms I like to lay things out so I can see what I have and how I’ll put it together. Select beads and place on the head pin then using the technique in the video below wrap the loop.

Then using jump rings attach the elements together. There are finished elements that can be purchased if you don’t feel confident in making the loops.

Making Journal Charms

There is such a variety of charms out there to choose from and it is okay to mix metal colors in projects. Any metal items are considered neutral in fashion. When mixing metals I think it adds a beautiful element. Like the charms were collected from all kinds of places and therefore don’t match.

Making Journal Charms

If you have never made jewelry items before and want more help, check out a local bead and jewelry making stores. Usually, if you go in and show them the project you are making and purchase items from them they will teach you or set you up in a class so you can learn from one of their instructors. This is how I learned many years ago.

Making Journal Charms

Have fun looking for beads and charms to use. This is one of my favorite things to do, search for items. Look at thrift stores at the jewelry items. Some of those can be taken apart and used.

Go through that costume jewelry bin that has damaged, broken or missing pieces and take some apart for making journal charms. You will be amazed at what you can find.

Have you tried your hand at making Altered Paper Clips? These make a great gift to add to a greeting card. Could even be the focal point on a greeting card. When they get the card they can remove the clip and use where ever they like.

For now, I think I’ll keep one in my Happy Planner to help mark my place and I might be persuaded to give the others a new home. 😉

How to make Shaker Box Charm Pendants

How to make Shaker Box Charm Pendants using Calico Collage Fanciful 1 inch digital images, Shaker box pendants and tiny glass diamonds. Super cute and easy to make!

When I found the Blank Slate pendants I knew these would be wonderful shaker box charm pendants. I purchased all they had at the store as these were on clearance and I didn’t want to miss out on having these in my stash.

Later I got a message from the owner of Calico Collage and she asked if I would do a tutorial on jewelry using her images. Things then clicked together and these are the pendants I made.

How to make Shaker Box Charm Pendants

Supplies used for How to make Shaker Box Charm Pendants:
Calico Collage Fanciful 1 inch digital images
Judikins Diamond Glaze – on Amazon
Hammered Bezel with Clear Acrylic Insert 33mm Hobby Lobby
Blank Slate 3 mm Crystal Faceted Glass Stones – Hobby Lobby
Mini Silver Filigree Butterfly Charms – Hobby Lobby
Metallic Glass Microbead in gold – on Amazon
Loctite super glue – on Amazon
3/4 inch square punch – on Amazon

The little Shaker Box Charm Pendants are so easy to make!

Here is a video to show you How to make Shaker Box Charm Pendants:

Download the Calico Collage Fanciful 1 inch digital images and print. I sent mine to Staples to have them printed on a laser printer. These were printed on standard white paper and look beautiful.

Trim the sheet into rows of images so that it is easy to use the 3/4 inch square punch – on Amazon on the images you want in the pendants.

Inside the Hammered Bezel with Clear Acrylic Insert 33mm Hobby Lobby place a drop of Judikins Diamond Glaze – on Amazon then add the image on top. Push down so that the glue spreads out to the edges of the image.

Select items to put inside I used:
Blank Slate 3 mm Crystal Faceted Glass Stones – Hobby Lobby
Mini Silver Filigree Butterfly Charms – Hobby Lobby
Metallic Glass Microbead in gold – on Amazon

Once all the bits and bobs have been added inside place a drop of the Loctite super glue – on Amazon in each corner of the bezel. It doesn’t take much of this glue. I like that is a gel and doesn’t come out fast. I’ve also found that unlike other super glues this one doesn’t dry up in the bottle before you get to use all of the glue.

Place the acrylic insert on top. Since the loop at the top is from front to back you will want to add a jump ring or use small gauge cord and tie a knot for the necklace.

I hope you enjoyed seeing How to make Shaker Box Charm Pendants. Make a few and share with friends and family. They will love these. 🙂

How to make Scrabble Jewelry

How to make Scrabble Jewelry, using Calico Collage Digital images – Simply Spring Charms, Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven, Judikins Diamond Glaze, 8-Ounce and jewelry findings.

How to make Scrabble Jewelry

Recently while shopping in the clearance isle at Hobby Lobby I found some black mixed media scrabble tiles. I knew that these would be perfect to make Scrabble Jewelry.

Supplies used:
Scrabble like tiles on Amazon.
Calico Collage Digital Images – Simply Spring Charm images.
Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven
Judikins Diamond Glaze, 8-Ounce – on Amazon
Jewelry Bails – on Amazon.
Square Punch – on Amazon
Scissors – on Amazon

These are super easy to make. And since I used the Diamond Glaze I can choose to make one or 100. Diamond Glaze doesn’t require mixing. No need to know the exact amount for the project. Just pour on what you need.

What I really love about the Calico Collage images is that they are crisp clear images even when only 1 inch in size. I was able to use a small square punch to select the images. It was easier once I cut the images into strips. That way I could put the punch where I wanted.

How to make Scrabble Jewelry

The little Scrabble Jewelry pieces will make great gifts for Birthday, Mother’s Day, Anniversary and evenChristmas. Or if you are wanting to make a little money, just gather up all the supplies and make as many as you want. It may even turn into a full-time job.

However, if you are not into making these, hit me up. I’ll make some for you, just tell me what kind of images you like the most.

When I made these I didn’t even purchase necklaces. I used cord that I had in my stash. Can use leather cord or even nylon cord, the choice is up to you.

Here is a video on how to make Scrabble Jewelry:

Who would you give Scrabble Jewelry to in your life? My mother might like one of these. Now I just have to decide which image she would like. Or I guess I could take a selection to her so that she could choose.
