Simply Adorned Jewelry

Have you all seen Stampin' Up!'s Simply Adorned jewelry? It's wonderful! I haven't done a whole lot with it until recently, when I came across this blog post from Shelli Gardner (Stampin' Up!'s cofounder & CEO). Is this just not the greatest piece you've ever seen!? I am a total vintage & junk queen, so I had to make something like it! I have made 1 Simply Adorned insert in the past, but I wanted to go really all out when I saw that necklace! But first I started with some simple inserts that I can change out everyday....that's the great thing about the Simply Adorned charms...they are interchangable! You can have a new necklace &/or bracelet every single day!! I made 6 inserts that I'll use on an unembellished Simply Adorned Chain.

For these, I used the 34" chain & 1.5"x2" Charm.

And this is my crowning glory!

I absolutely can’t wait to wear this one!! I used a variety of materials for this piece. I used the 1.5”x2” Charm again, with the 24” chain. I made my insert from Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper (no longer available except in a My Digital Studio download, but the Springtime Vintage Designer Fabric is available through the Occasions Mini Carry Over items), Very Vanilla Card Stock, a couple of retired stamp sets (I guess I should stop using things you guys can’t get a hold of anymore), Basic Pearls, Distressing Essentials, and Gold Embossing Powder. At first, I wasn’t sure how I would feel about the gold, but I love it! It adds to the “vintage flare!! For the embellishments on the chain, I used pearls, beads, flowers & brads from the Pretties Kit (no longer available, but the Paper Daisies are available in a package alone). I used some miscellaneous ribbon & lace I had from Hobby Lobby, as well as some scrap fabric. I used an Old Olive button, and a tiny tag with a crown stamped on it from the Tiny Tags Stamp Set. I love it how it is, but I think I will add a Simply Adorned Clear Crystal Bauble, Pink Crystal Bauble & Vanilla Pearl Bauble, then is will be just perfect! I’ll post a pic again once I add the baubles!

Order any Simply Adorned Charm & Necklace &/or Bracelet, and I will give you 7 inserts to get started with, one for every day of the week!
