Simply Adorned Necklace

This month, I treated myself to a Simply Adorned 1-1/2″x2″ Charm and 34″ Chain.  I’ve been waiting for the larger size charm, and they’re finally available!  I’m having so much fun designing inserts for this beautiful necklace.  And boy, I’ve found, it doesn’t take very much to decorate that small of a space!  Did you notice the beautiful toggle clasp and exclusive Stampin’ Up! charm on the chain? 

I wanted a monogram look, and I pulled a retired alphabet set off my shelf called Well Worn Alphabet.

It’s hard to see the dimension in the picture, but the glass in the Charm is beveled — oh, so beautiful!  I stamped the “K” in Black Craft Ink on Kraft card stock then heat embossed it with Black Embossing Powder.  The heart is from Tiny Tags and is stamped on a separate piece of card stock with Real Red Craft Ink, then heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder and adhered with Dimensionals.  The flower motif is also from Tiny Tags.  I made a mask for the “K”, then stamped both flowers with White Craft Ink and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder.

And of course, you have to decorate the back of your Charm just in case it flips around while you’re wearing it!

Both these images are from Charming stamp set which was featured in the Holiday Mini Catalog but which is still available!  Both of these stamp sets are designed to fit perfectly with our Simply Adorned line.  I stamped the background stamp on Kraft card stock with Black Craft Ink, then stamped the “CREATE” on a separate piece of card stock with Real Red Craft Ink, heat embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder and cut it out and adhered it with Dimensionals.  There’s space within the charm for a bit of three dimensional artwork.

Here’s another look for my Charm!

I added a 5/8″ Circle Charm and a 5/8″ Square Charm to either side of the larger one.  Really all you need to do is place a piece of one of our many beautiful designer series papers inside the charms–it’s that easy!  Here I used paper from the Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper Stack.  There are so many gorgeous papers to choose from!  I’ve also added some tiny rhinestones from the Eggcellent Eggs Kit.  If you don’t already own this great little kit, now’s the time to order it!  It’s available until April 30th or while supplies last.  After it’s gone, I’m not sure that we’re going to carry these tiny rhinestones, and they’re just perfect for decorating your labradorite, as well as many other uses.  Check out cards made with the set HERE.  Anyway, I digress!  The large multi-colored butterfly is just the designer paper, but the So Saffron butterfly is cut from the Big Shot and the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die with a piece of silver cording wrapped around its body.  I adhered it to the paper with a Dimensional, well, actually 1/2 of a dimensional! 

Here’s a close-up:

And the back is just the reverse side of the designer paper.  You can also see the small charms better here.

Simply Adorned Jewelry by Stampin’ Up!


It's here!  The Stampin' Up! Simply Adorned line beautifully combines the best of two worlds: stamping and jewelry! Simply Adorned charms are designed to hold a creation you design yourself, making your jewelry truly unique.

Simply Adorned charms are lockets–they open up so you can insert your custom stamped image. The Charming stamp set, along with Rub-Ons, glitter, ribbons, and other embellishments, can help you create your unique charm insert. And don't forget that you can embellish the chains with ribbon, felt flowers . . . the possibilities are endless! The frame surrounds tempered beveled glass on the front and flat glass on the back. Because there's glass on both sides of the charm, you can display an image on one side or both. You can create a custom heirloom piece that you'll never want to change, or you can swap artwork in and out, depending on your mood and your wardrobe.

And although Stampin' Up! designed Simply Adorned charms to be jewelry, they also make delightful key chains or Christmas tree ornaments. Insert a stamped image or photo of your loved ones, tie a ribbon through the clasp, and you're done!

It's easy to create custom jewelry. When you wear your own Simply Adorned necklace or charm bracelet with artwork you created yourself, be prepared for questions about where you got it!
