Recipe for "How to Turn Modern into Vintaj"

On Wednesday I was lucky enough to spend the day wandering the floor of the Brisbane Quilt and Craft show and I spent a good deal of time in the dedicated bead area. I was on a mission to find beads to use with some of my resin casts and this is what I came up with for a cameo I had cast in lime green.

One rather hideous (but definitely modern) lime green cameo......
one beautiful filigree brass stamping.....
and a few strands of Czech glass beads in earthen tones......
  1. Place the cast on the brass stamping and carefully wrap the sides around it.
  2. Thread the crystals on tiger tail and thread through the back of the stamping.
  3. Secure ends with a clasp.
And here's one I prepared earlier!Mmmm....... yummy!

Look at the back view which is quite lovely too!
Check back later to see what else I cook up with my craft show finds.

Would you like to comment?

  1. as nice as the front of this is, the back just looks wonderful.

  2. Wow, great idea and lovely fresh look with the resin cameo and the beads. ;-)

  3. Thanks Ev - I really love the back too - it's such a beautiful stamping. Might have to see if it's reversible!
