Altered Necklace- Prima DT- Finnabair Mechanicals


Today is my first Prima reveal. 

Its a CHA Summer 2013 Sneak Peek
Sneak Peeks-01

I wanted to thank everyone who congratulated me and left me some love on my blog, Facebook and personal emails.
You guys rock my world and I'm extremely grateful to you all.

****************************
Now onto my project:

Finnabair has released an amazing new collection: Vintage Vanity and Elementals and I've created a necklace using some of the mechanical elements from  this  collection.


As soon as I saw these metal treasures from the Vintage Vanity and Elementals collection I knew I had to make a necklace out of them. I fell in love with the Mechanicals fob watch case and I knew I wanted to fill it in with treasures. I used to design necklaces so I had a copper colored chain in my stash that matched perfectly with the metal trinkets. 


SP Finnabair


I filled the empty case with a flower mechanical and glued a medallion inside of it. Then I filled the rest of the case with blue beads. Finally I cut a circle out of recycled plastic packaging and sealed the top.


I used different chain lengths to attach Mechanical elements and have them dangle down the necklace. I attached them at different lengths to add some height and texture to the look.


Supplies 
961084- Mechanicals Clocks
961091- Mechanicals 
961077- Mechanicals Vintage centre
961060- Mechanicals Washer
961039- Mechanicals Leaves I

other materials: blue beads, copper chain, clasp, loops, plastic packaging and glue.
