Michael's Metal Mania bib blank, various buttons, pearls, ribbon, clear crystal chain, E6000 glue, mixed metal double chain, toggle clasp
What was your inspiration?
I saw a YouTube video about collage necklaces and decided to try. The YouTube video is from B'Sue's Boutique if you want to look it up.
What are you most proud of?
I like how each piece on the bib compliments the others.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Lay the biggest things out first (not easy on a curved item, by the way). If you use crystal chain, try to lay them on their side so they are seen from the front. Sometimes it helps to put the glue on the item then on the blank, sometimes it works better to put the glue on the blank then add the item. Usually the second way works better with smaller items that you are using to fill in.
