A giftie for my Sistie…er, Sister!

When my sister gave me the Fuseworks microwaveable bead kiln for my birthday I knew I wanted to make some beads for her to thank her:

Stamp: Stampin Up!, Paper: K& Co., Die Cuts: Creative Cuts & More, Punch: Martha Stewart

To display and protect the beads in the mail I used a shaker kit from Creative Cuts and More. To keep the backs of the post style earrings from poking through the envelop when I mailed it I placed some plastic packaging behind the card and mailed it in a padded envelope, they arrived safe and sound 😉 To attach the beads to the metal bail and ear posts I used E6000 glue, it’s rugged so beware! Have good ventilation.

For the earrings I used black glass for the bottom later, then a bit of silver leafing, then transparent green on top. For the pendant I used black glass with a foil pattern and clear on top. The foil did no damage to my microwave in the kiln!
