Chevron and bamboo beads!

Before I show the project, please let me say a quick thank you for stopping by Gel-a-tins today! I hope you have been enjoying the latest DT projects!

Today, I decided to go away from my comfort zone...far away! I usually make cards, but today I took a stab at making a jewelry piece. I kept coming across some bamboo beads on clearance at a local craft store. A few days ago I finally decided to buy them. Unsure of what I was going to do, I had them sitting on my counter for a few days.

I started to play around with the Cheveron-tastic stamp set and the idea finally clicked. I was going to attempt stamping on the beads.

Here is the final outcome: (after going through several trial-runs)


The first step I completed was to lightly sandpaper the front of the bead. Once the polish was off, I stamped the image using permanent stamping ink. The first image was stamped in the middle and the remaining stamps went from there.

To finish of the piece I added a few beads to each side of the pendant. Voila! Finished!
