These are two of the first projects I made for this book and I immediately fell in love with them.  Something about using unexpected materials to create something beautiful just turns me on.  There are all kinds of variations to this design and I’m hoping that if you make a version of this cuff you’ll share them with me.  I also hope you’ll love them as much as I do.

Lord of the Rings (and Stones) Necklace from the Big-Ass Book of Bling!

Did you know that when you put resin on cardboard it becomes as hard as metal?  I’ve been going nuts using the two together with terrific results and have created some pieces that hold up just as well as other pieces of jewelry.  Not only that, these pieces won’t tarnish like metal pieces.  Plus, they’re made from recycled materials.  I’d say this technique is a WINNER!
