Squee! PASTEL RAINBOW GOODNESS!
(My inner 5-year-old is in heaven right now.)
I used my new Looper tool to make those Swarovski danglies (and wow is that easy/fun) and then added a tiny length of chain so the lollipop hangs just below them, like so:
I already had the crystals and chain, so this was a pretty easy upgrade for a $5 charm!
And now a close-up, since I can't be the only one who loves rainbow eye candy:
The lollipop is by Bon AppetEats, btw, and look what else I found on her website:
GLaDOS potato necklace!!
Lots more miniature food goodness over there, too, if you want to do some shopping. (The ice cream scoop earrings are crazy realistic, and super cool. [pun intended])
Now I've moved on to a much more involved necklace project. Still not quite done, but here's a peek - and I think my fellow Disney fans are gonna liiiike it!
I cast the bats from resin, then sanded, painted, aged, and drilled each one. Tedious stuff, and it took forever just to get the resin casts right, since my first few batches were riddled with tiny bubbles. >.<
I've since found better/thicker chains, so I'll be swapping those out soon, but quick poll: what do you guys think of the green/teal bead? Any good? As a Haunted Mansion homage I wanted both green and purple, but do you think I should try other colors, too?
