Egyptian Collar

I know I said today would be the finished jewelry display, but the photos are stuck on my camera at the moment. So instead, here's another experiment with micro beads. 
I mixed a little brown paint in with the protective mod-podge coating, to tone down the colors and make the necklace look older. It was a little nerve wracking to see all that work vanish under gloppy brown, but it cleared up as it dried.
This in-progress photo shows how bright the colors were originally!


  1. Amazing! You have succeeded in making it look ancient. I would never, ever have thought of doing what you have done. Thank you for sharing this.

  2. Wow! Looks like an ancient Egyptian collar.
    Great job.
    Hugs, Drora

  3. Fabulous! It looks ancient.
    Friendly greetings, Faby

  4. Bellissimi i tuoi mini gioielli!kiss

  5. Really nice. The colours are very bright.

  6. Beautiful! Is that a mini because it looks too intricate to be that small.
