Shimmer Sheetz Necklace

Posted by Jackie on 23rd Feb 2015

Hi everyone, Jackie here! My project today: a one of a kind necklace made from Elizabeth Craft Designs Shimmer Sheetz and the Elizabeth Craft Designs Jewelry Dies 2 – Droplets.


Step 1: Cut 2 pieces of Fire Opal Gemstone Shimmer Sheetz that measure approximately 4” X 5”.

Step 2: Use alcohol inks to alter the Shimmer Sheetz (I used Butterscotch and Cranberry on my project).

Step 3: Once the alcohol ink has dried, adhere the two pieces of Shimmer Sheetz together (back to back) using Scor-Tape. Make sure the entire piece is covered with tape when you are adhering.

Step 4: Using Jewelry Dies 2 - Droplets, send the Shimmer Sheetz through your die-cutting machine. For best results, use the Elizabeth Craft Designs metal adapter plate (I cut 2 pieces from each die, resulting in 12 pieces for the necklace).

Step 5: Emboss the (now cut) pieces of Shimmer Sheetz with the Elizabeth Craft Designs Swirly Curves embossing folder.

Step 6: Sand the raised pattern with a sanding block to create a unique look.

Step 7: Cut a jewelry chain to 24” or desired length.

Step 8: Pierce the Shimmer Sheetz jewelry pieces with a paper piercer to create a small hole.

Step 9: Use pliers to open the jump rings sideways. Then thread each jump ring through a Shimmer Sheet jewelry piece and attach it to the jewelry chain.

Step 10: If desired, attach charms with jump rings.

Step 11: Attach a clasp to the end of the chain so that it becomes a wearable necklace.

The result is a beautiful, unique necklace and a wonderful conversation piece!
