I bet the cellophane version would be really cool as a window of sorts in something steampunk-y, like a robot insect or something. What happens when you shine a light through it? Could it go over a flashlight or as a lamp shade? You're saying that in order to make cool-looking jewelry with bubble wrap, I have to actually pop all the bubbles first!? Can a craft get any better than this!?
I digress…. Smarty pants fairy pendant on the top and bottom of the other side. I think they meant it looks like capiz shell, not mother-of-pearl. Stacey June 11, at MSarty. Thanks for the ideal way to recycle used bubble wrap. SM3 June 11, at PM. Also, including a link? So one extra day. Cut the legs off a pair of queen-size panty hose any color you choose.

Could it go over a flashlight or as a lamp shade? You're saying that in order to make cool-looking jewelry with bubble wrap, I have to actually pop all the bubbles first!? Can a craft get any better than this!? Can't wait to try it. And your earrings are beautiful, even though I think snow is the most horrible thing.
How about a pendant or pin in the shape of a lizard Or a butterfly. In each the body could be cut separately from the wings, giving a layered look. I'd take those snowflake earrings, I've got some silver earring doodads from making other jewelry that I could switch them out for.
Seriously though, this is a VERY cool idea Especially for those of us who like to pop bubble wrap, to get a second use out of it!! Thanks for sharing! I'm wondering how you got the four layers of fused bubble wrap to stick together. Did you glue them or fuse the four layers already fused separately together? I'm seeing a great steampunk dragonfly pendant made of some old gears or watch parts using your iridescent bubble wrap fusion for the wings! You should make the it into an iridescent coffee table!
Or a windowpane. But I don't know how that would hold up. It would be cool to try stained glass bubble wrap. I think you should do exactly what you said - a butterfly wing!
Or a dragonfly wing set since that is what the colors remind me of. I bet you could do an awesome steampunk-esque collage picture of a metal-and-gears dragonfly with that plastic for the wings. A necklace? Make circles and put holes in them and link 'em together with jump rings and chain or jump rings and fun beads I like fused glass Czech beads. Ok now I have to try this. I have ideas now.
I am going to try the pretty kind at the bottom of your blog and use it to make either little dragon wings or fairy wings for polymer clay figures. Thanks for the idea and the tutorial! I'm thinking something aquatic You know Jen if you did want to wear the earrings, you could cut off the hooks and put Clip-ons instead I myself don't have pierced ears so this is what I do when I make earrings.
How about using your snowflake punch again to make a necklace? Join the flakes together using jumprings. More snowflakes then less jumprings. Attach a swarovski crystal to a headpin then hook to jumprings for a bit more sparkle in between. Dragonfly wings. On a steampunkish dragonfly. I don't know how you'd do it, but I'm seeing some kind of copper wire-wrapping involved. And something sparkly for the eyes. Can't wait to see what you come up with!
Everyone is saying steampunk insects. Which could be really cool, but my Disney geek brain says something Mickey!! Mickey is always awesome, and even better when iridescent! Jenna - I considered a lamp shade with the clear version, but you're right; the rainbow colored one would look even better! Hope that helps! Alex - Oooh yes, I have converted earrings to clips before; just didn't have any on hand for these. I'll hang on to them for the next time I buy a pack, tho.
SM3 - I really like this idea! I considered joining 2 or 3 for a necklace, but figured it needed more - and I was feeling lazy. Can you imagine that peaking out from underneath lace in a sea of shiny gold? Seahorse pendant! Love the snowflakes, the frosted look is so perfect.
I don't know how transparent it is.. I think it would look pretty cool. That shiny shiny coloured one looks like it could be a power source in something steampunk.
Just my 2p. I'm on a Dragonfly kick, so that's what I'll be doing. So awesome! Jen, you could also leave the snowflakes "as is" and use them as ornaments on a Christmas tree - the hook to hang it is built in! Please, please please,please! I'm making an extra adorable face! I was thinking like Andrea-a seahorse or mermaid tail was the first thing that came to my mind. I also wanted to share that my husband and I had classy steampunk portraits done, see them here. I'm seeing a steampunk dragonfly pendant or sculpture with the iridescent plastic for the wings.
Faceted beads for the eyes, tiny gears and brass or copper wire wrapped to make the body I have a crap ton of bubble wrap around the house right now and two small boys who would love to help me pop every single bubble. I might have to try this out! Someone with stretched earlobes could wear the earring through silicone earskins.
Just a thought, since I actually kind of like the matte silver of the painted hooks. I can't decide which is more pretty: the actual earrings or the gorgeous way you staged the photo. Glad you liked my ieda. I've been making necklaces lately so I've been thinking a lot about design. Just made a couple with carnelian stones beautiful shades of orange and matching earings with fire opal swarovski beads.
The site where I get my beads has a wonderful jumpring ring that has notches that help open and close them a lot easier. Oh my goodness! Between this and the 6 shrinking plastic I finally got some with bakery cookies a couple days ago! Thank you!!! I'll send you a picture when I finish I love your snowflake earrings!
They would be pretty on a Christmas tree too. I agree with everyone else who said dragonfly, butterfly, or fairy wings, and I LOVE the idea of a steampunk dragonfly. I bet this would also work with Angelina fibers. Soooooo pretty! I'd vote for insect wings, mobile, bookmark or keyring. Also, have you ever considered getting your ears pierced? I'm with steampunk dragonfly something.
Or something planetary or astronomical. I agree with all the comments about popping bubbles and insect wings. As for what the stuff looks like, from the pictures it reminds me of capiz shell, although not as smooth maybe. You could cut out circles and make a chandelier, if it fit at all with your decor. Or a funky flapper costume. And that iredescent plastic looks aaamaaaziiing. You should definitely use it to make a portal into another dimension. Christmas decorations? Party hat?
Amazing gift cards? I could see that irridescent plastic as a steampunk flower, edged with some nice copper wire with a copper nut to act as the base. A few of those on a hat band or a fascinator would be cool.
No thanks. Perfect for schools, libraries, park districts, country clubs or your next special event! Watching facial expressions on these kids faces was just priceless. Sarah K. You can go to cart and save for later there.

Now that my jewelry making table is cleaned up after the meltdown of my superhappylovegoddess self the other night See this post: Craft Therapy and a New Necklace I spent half of yesterday just sitting down making things.
If you missed them before I made earrings out of a different acrylic flower here: Acrylic Flower Earrings. In this case I added acrylic flowers with a decorative headpin, a clear swarovski bicone and a leaf shaped bead cap.
I created a wrapped loop to attach them to the chain. I also really like the matte of the acrylic flowers with the little bit of sparkle added from the Swarovski beads. And just because I could, I also made a pair of earrings basically the same way as I made these: Acrylic Flower Earrings to go with my necklace. Which makes me wonder… do you make jewelry for outfits you already have or do you just make what you like and hope you have something to wear with it?
I love your necklace and earrings!!! In answer to your question, I almost always make jewelry because I love the beads or a particular pattern. The problem with that is I wear mostly purple and seem to really LOVE green beads, all shades of green and even some blues.
See the problem? Thanks for sharing your simple and very sweet design! Hi Deana, Thank you! I bought them quite a while ago at my local craft store. I hope that helps. This is so simple and pretty! My daughter and I both love this tyype of necklace mainly cuae it can be dressed up or down, jeans or dresses. I may just make one. Thanks for the tut. Follow Me!

For questions, contact vickilodell at gmail dot com. Skip to content. I love drop necklaces because they are easy to make, take few beads but still look nice. Wanna make one? Here are the details. Cut the chain in half and add a small jump ring to the center of one side.
Add the second length of long chain and close the jump ring. It should look like this once you have the three sections of chain assembled. Now add the beads to the drop portion of the chain. I also added swarovski hearts with a small jump ring. I love the red and the pink together. I feel a shopping trip coming on! Vicki O'Dell All posts.
