No Bones About It!

Well, in this case, it’s ALL about the bones! I was delighted to play with a brand new myStampBOX set of stamps called Bottlecaps (coming soon to the store!)

I stamped the skull image from this set using Ranger Archival ink in Jet Black on white cardstock. I glued it to a Tim Holtz glass Fragment using Glossy Accents and added a jewelry bail to the back. I tied the pendant to a black satin cord with a few distressed white beads. My son proudly declared that they reminded him of bones!

At first I wasn’t sure who was going to get the necklace, so I whipped up a quick tag to go with it using the same skull image and letters from Lots of Dots.

My youngest son, Matthew, is our rocker, so this necklace didn’t stand a chance! Once he saw the skull he sheepishly asked if he could have the necklace. Of course this crafty mom agreed! Matthew’s review of this project was, “Way cool, Mom!” I’ll take that any day! Here’s a quick look at two other stamped, beaded Halloween necklaces I made last year.

As you can probably tell, I love stamping to create jewelry. These stamps work so well with the glass fragments that it’s super easy to make your own custom pendants. Give it a try!
