What's New Wednesday-Base and Bling

Close to My Heart came out with the Base and Bling line a couple of Idea Books ago, but with the Annual Inspirations they really streamlined it and added a lot of fun options. Though I will say that when I first saw it all I was a little confused as to what I needed to finish a necklace and how to go about it. So today I am going to walk you through the process and let you know what the final price is for one necklace.
First you will start with a chain and you have two options Faux Antiqued Silver (Z1940) OR Faux Antiqued Gold (Z1954). You can also make a cuff bracelet that also comes in either the Faux Antiqued Silver or Gold.

If you choose the necklace you will now need to choose which shape of pendant you want: oval, rectangle, square, or circle. Keep in mind that these do come in packs of 3 and they will be all the same shape. The pendants will come in either Faux Antiqued Silver or Faux Antiqued Gold and it will be the same finish in each pack.
After you have picked out your pendant shape you will also need to get Glass Covers that are the same shape as the pendant that you choose. If you choose the cuff you will need to get the oval Glass Covers. These also come in packs of 3. Here is what the circle Glass Covers look like:
Next comes the really fun part, you get to choose which Style sheet you want:
These come in the rectangle shape, to get them into the shape that you want you just have to trace around the glass cover that you picked (circle, oval, or square). These are stickers so they are really easy to just cut out and stick to your pendant. Then to finish your necklace just put a little liquid glass down on the sticker and place your Glass Cover on top. Close to My Heart has also given you a few options for adding some fun bling to your necklace:
Also what you see in these pictures is what you will get, 6 charms 3 in each of the 2 finishes, silver or gold. These are easy to just add to your necklace, all you do is open the jump ring a little, place onto a loop in the chain and then close the jump ring. As you can see these are really easy and fun to make and personlize. Also you can also see that it is also going to be easy to make these in multiples of three. If you do this each necklace will be $13.75, and that is with one of the bling accents, if you don't add the bling it would be $13 a piece. If you choose to make a cuff it will be $8. It would be so fun to do a Jewelry buffet. Just order a bunch of the chains, one Style Sheet, a couple packages of the pendants and the glass covers. If you are local and are wanting me to help with throwing one of these just let me know because it would be so fun for you and your friends. Just let me know if you are interested.
