How To Make A Delightful Bracelet That is Quick and Easy

If you like altered items then you will want to know how to make this delightful bracelet that is quick and easy.  I love costume jewelry. when this fun piece showed up in a box from my Grandmother I knew right away it was destined to become something NEW!
~ Forget Me Not ~
 The bezels had a resin or epoxy substance with glitter in them. A bit of concentrated heat from the heat gun had them popped right out. They had yellowed and looked grimy. 
 Step 1: Dab the top of the bezel with pigment ink.
Step 2: Place paper over a lightly padded surface, press bezel onto paper.
Step 3:Cut out inside of inked frame to use for a pattern. Press into bezel to trim any high edges.
Step 4:Trace pattern onto reverse of Wedding Cut-Outs Cardstock.

Step 5: Use a dab of the Best Glue Ever to tack the paper down to the bezel. This ScraPerfect glue is so versatile it is perfect for attaching the cardstock to the metal.
Step 6:Pour gloss medium onto bezel, add Heart Dew Drops and two Black Diamond Dew Drops. To attach these items use Embellie Gellie. It helps put small items EXACTLY where you want them!
Step 7: Leave to cure for 24 to 48 hours.
To string the bracelet use elastic cord. Measure the width of the wrist plus one inch for tying fasteners. Bead, tie, and add fasteners to the ends. 
 Wear your new bracelet or give as a gift.
This dramatic bracelet is sure to please where ever it goes!
