a little "modern mommy" necklace that I created and wanted to share...
I just LOVE mine and thought they might make
a delightful Mother's Day gift!
I chose a large covered button as the base for the silhouette...
I covered mine in a natural linen,
I then copied the children's silhouettes (reducing the size to fit the button),
cut the silhouette and apply to the button top using Mod Podge
(use several coats for a nice strong finish),
I then removed the button loop on the back of the button using pliers
and glued a jewelry bail to the top,
I added vintage lace and seam binding bows to the tops of the bails,
and strung them on a long antique brass chain - adding a few other beads and more vintage lace.
and Princess #2!
and now they are with me wherever I go!
and at the end of the day in my favorite tray they lay...
my "thoroughly modern mommy" necklace!
