Making Memories Necklace -

Part of my Diggin' on Damask loot was a bunch of findings from the Making Memories Vintage Groove jewelry line by Jill Schwartz.  This morning I decided to put a quick necklace together.
I laid out my charms in the order that I wanted to put them together and reinforced the fabric flowers with a bit of E-6000 - not taking any chances of them falling off during the exertions of the day!  Do you see the coral colored charm above - do you find it to be a bit "too colorful" - probably not but I am not one to be too flashy so . . .
I quickly toned it down with a dab of Folk Art Champagne Shimmer Acrylic paint.  Took only seconds and made it "more me".
I could not take a clear pic not matter how I tried once I put the necklace on - There is a reason there are very few pics of me on this blog!  I'm glad the mirror didn't crack!  I'm off to take my Vintage Groove-y self off to the grocery.  Hope you are having a great day!

Very pretty!!! I may be taking your class tomorrow at Make Time to Create. I'd love to make my own flowers :-) Hayden, Lily and I are off to run errands too.

Groovy! Couldn't resist that! But I love this necklace! Great idea for toning down the coral color. I prefer the muted look too. Very pretty!

Love to see you getting your groove on!! :)
That 'coral' one was WAY too pink for you, wasn't it?! HA!
Great job- and it looks beautiful on you!
