Die-cut a Ring out of chipboard. Punch a hole in the Ring. Apply pigment ink to one side of the Ring. Sprinkle with embossing powder. Tap excess powder back into container. Using a heat tool, melt the powder to reveal the shiny surface, being careful not to fill in the punched hole. Repeat heat embossing on opposite side of Ring. Feed a larger jump ring through the hole in the Ring and attach to a chain to form a necklace. Attach a larger jump ring to the Ring and attach lengths of chain anchored by pearls strung on head pins. Die-cut a Butterfly out of craft metal and emboss using the Swirly Vine embossing folder. Slightly bend wings upward to show dimension. Punch a hole in the Butterfly and attach a bail. Attach the bail to the jump ring at the top of the Ring. Also attach pearls strung on head pins.
