DIY Jewelry Made by Yours Truly

Thanks for visiting today and Happy Memorial Day to those from the U.S.A. Many thanks to all who have fought and sacrificed for our country!

I bought all the goodies to make jewelry several years ago but once I sat down to create something, I was overwhelmed with it all.  That all changed when Imaginisce announced they were creating jewelry accessory bits at CHA Winter 2012. It's called the Magni-top collection. Have you seen the necklaces, bracelets and earrings yet? I knew I would have to create something with the collections since I am on the DT and I'll admit that I was hesitant at first.

Here's my first attempt at a necklace and matching bracelet...
Supplies: Imaginisce (i-top 2.0, Magni-top necklace & pendants, Magni-top variety pack, Magni-top bracelet, small button daddies, large magnet daddies); Misc: black ribbon, fabric; The Jewelry Shoppe Findings Round Jump Ring 6MM, Charm Me Crystal Bead Charms, Charm Me Trio Dangle Charm

The new Magni-top jewelry is a great way to add variety to your jewelry collection. I love that you can create a new look using the same piece of jewelry simply by switching out the brads.

For my project today, I threaded black ribbon through the bracelet chain to give it a bit more chunkiness and then I added in a few charms that I got from my local craft store. 
I pulled out my magnet and button daddies and covered them with fabric using my i-top 2.0. I will say that I had a little trouble keeping the magnet daddies from sticking to each other and/or the bracelet but I can't wait to make brads in different colors and designs to match whatever I am wearing.  I can even make brads in my kids school colors and sport for all my kids activities!

Make sure to head over to the Imaginisce blog today to see what some of the other DT gals did and enter for a chance to win your own Magni-top goodies!
