I Have Necklaces!!

I'm so excited! I finally have some necklaces!!!

There was a lot of trial and error involved in getting these suckers right, but I finally found the secret.

I don't know what I was doing wrong, but every glue I tried made my images run and fade. Not only that but it would not stick to the glass.

I even bought that fancy Microglaze that is supposed to fading and running, and it did nothing for me.

I was so bummed, because it seemed that all over the web and Etsy everyone was making these fabulous necklaces with no troubles, and here I was struggling, and trying a zillion different products with no luck.

Well finally I found the trick. 5 minute Epoxy! That stuff rocks. It dries right away, doesn't run nor does it fade. Believe me I was shocked too, but I'm super happy it works.

So anyway, here are a few to look at. I will be making a lot more this week with new images. They are so much fun! And, they will be for sale on Etsy tomorrow should you want to get your hot little hands on some. :)

Hi Michelle,

I love your place. I'm just stopping by to say hello. I saw your name on the Flying Lessons site and I wanted to introduce myself since I was having a look around.
