Off to See the Wizard…. Emerald City Inspiration

Throughout the week I’ve been featuring our collection of Emerald City inspired designs! We hope they have inspired you to join us in our March Design Challenge ~ Mark your calendars for the new deadline, submission now due March 4th. Get creative with jewelry designs, accessories, paper crafts, mixed media… you name it, the skies the limit! With our Arte Metal & Natural Brass findings you can create almost anything, and we can’t wait to see what you come up with for this unique & whimsical theme! Today I wanted to share even more project ideas inspired by the Emerald City… Enjoy! Take a closer look at how some of these fabulous pieces were made… {Click on individual photos for links to product} Emerald City Create beautiful patterns onto altered blanks with Sizzix Texture Impression embossing folders.. Cut your own shapes with metal cutting shears, here Jeanne cut a scalloped edge on the right side of the blank where the bead hangs. Paint & ink the embossed blank and relief to highlight the raised area. Layer a beautiful cabochon over the pendant and seal it all in with ICE Resin for a glass-like look. Cluster a variety of green beads from chain to give it added color and texture. Emerald Forest Use the metal screw down hole punch to drill holes at the top of the Arte Metal Tiered Leaves to create connectors. Simply connect them with jump rings and cluster a group of pearls at each end. Finish with a simple chain. City Fields Rose created a connector using the arte metal Etruscan Navette. Simply drill a hole on the bottom side and curve using bail making pliers. Connect to a letter stamped open name plate and an embossed altered blank. The contrasting metals provide color and style! Happy Designing!

    And would the “Emerald City” be Seattle by any chance? 8^D All these designs are wonderful, but I really love the “Emeral Forest” design – very simple, and understated, yet quite elegant.
