Good Morning ScraPerfect Friends! Chelsea here to share with you a lovely rhinestone covered bead for earrings, pendants, zipper pulls or any other creative project. With my finished rhinestone covered beads I created a set of earrings using the Best Glue Ever and Embellie Gellie.
Here are the supplies you will need :
Best Glue Ever
Soccer Ball Style Large Beads
I had some large black acrylic beads in my bead stash collection that looked a little drab and plain. Normally a person would grab their jewelry glue but it's full of toxins and fumes. I had never thought to use the BGE in a jewelry project before but wanted to give it a try.
To begin, I placed small dabs of glue everywhere that I wanted to attach a rhinestone too. Letting the glue dry clear and tacky.
Once the glue was tacky; which only took a few minutes, I used my Embellie Gellie to pick up each of the rhinestones to place them on the clear tacky glue spots.
*NOTE : I am working on a beading mat which is like a foam piece of fabric. I was completely impressed that even on a soft surfaces the Embellie Gellie still was able to grab on and lift up the rhinestones! I was even able to use the Embellie Gellie to flip over the upside down rhinestones - Quickly and easily.
After turning my drab, plain beads into gorgeous rhinestone covered beads I decided to make them into a pair of earrings. Here are the completed earrings. Fabulous for a night on the town!
Thanks for stopping by!
