Ten Dollar Tuesday - Candy Corn Pendant

Each week we will feature a project with Art Beads that can be made for ten dollars or under. This week Tari Sasser from Creative Impressions In Clay shows us how to make this simple Framed Charm necklace.

1-Candy Corn Charm or Charm of your choice
1-Frame Locket from Ornamentea
1-Jump Ring-.25" or smaller
1-Re-purposed Necklace or Chain
(Greek Leather or Waxed Cotton Cord is another option)
Optional-embellish with more beads

Sometimes simple is better. This necklace is very easy to make. The Frame Lockets from Ornamentea have so many possibilities. The charm or bead you would like to frame/feature can change daily with your mood.

Start with a charm that has a loop on top.
1. Place the charm up through the slit of the built-in bail in the lid of the frame.
2. Attach your jump ring through the loop and the bail.
3. Slide your re-purposed necklace or cording through the jump ring.

Voila! A stylin' necklace simply done.
If you would like more bling add beads to the bail or necklace.

I love this project Tari! Those frame lockets are nice but the candy corn charm makes me laugh out loud! This world needs more beautiful things that also make you smile-

I like it! Gives the charm more 'importance' when it is framed like that! You're right, sometimes simple is best!
