I'm so excited to share a website that shows how to make a necklace out of bubble wraps!. Yaha, my jaw certainly d.r.o.p.p.e.d!. Sherri Haab and Michelle Haab featured a cool bubble wrap necklace in their book, "Jewelry Upcycled!". Check out their great tutorial here and you'll be making one handsome jewelry piece in no time :). I tried making one last night and was quite happy how it turned out. I also added a pair of earrings just for fun.
The finished project.
Some of the materials used; glass beads, bubble wrap discs, jump rings, findings and salvaged bracelet & necklace. If followed the tutorial very closely, you'll ended up with quite sturdy fused bubble wrap sheets. The more layers of bubble wraps, the thicker the fused sheets would be. From here, I drew and cut circles of various sizes before punched holes in them. Then continued assembling the glass beads and bubble wrap discs with jump rings & findings to the necklace using jewelry-making tools.
I love how the fused bubble wrap discs retained its original 'bubble', yet compacted. They have such beautiful sheen, almost like pearly shells.
Do check out LESSology Challenge #16 (Bubble Boy or Girl) for great inspirations from the designing team, many more cool ways to upcycle bubble wraps . Come along join in the fun with us!. Till next, have a good Wednesday :).
