Butterfly Inspiration Charm Bracelet

Butterflies are so graceful and majestic, and they look especially pretty in a charm bracelet with some glitter and Mod Podge. Add the inspirational words of your choice to personalize.

Butterfly Inspiration Charm Bracelet

Materials:

  • Oval pendant bezels, 5
  • Chain bracelet
  • Mod Podge Matte
  • Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
  • FolkArt Extreme Glitter – Hologram
  • Scrapbook paper, 1 sheet - light blue/green
  • Small butterfly stickers or images, 5
  • Inspirational words Joy, Peace, Hope, Love, Faith (computer generated or cut out of found text), 5
  • Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Vintage Photo
  • Small faceted glass beads (assorted colors), 15
  • Heart charm
  • Jump rings, 21
  • Head pins, 15
  • Jewelry pliers

Instructions:

  1. Cut out five small oval pieces of scrapbook paper to fit, as a background, in the bezels. Adhere with Mod Podge Matte. Allow to dry.
     
  2. Cut out butterfly images (If not using stickers) and inspirational words.
     
  3. Run the edge of each word along the ink pad making sure to only lightly ink edges as the Dimensional Magic will create a slight “bleed” effect.
     
  4. Attach butterflies and words to bezels with Mod Podge Matte.
     
  5. Paint over the butterfly wings with Hologram Extreme Glitter. Allow to dry.
     
  6. Give each bezel a coat of Dimensional Magic. The ink along the words will “bleed” slightly; this is part of the look. Once dry, after at least 3 hours, give an additional coat of Dimensional Magic. Allow to dry.
     
  7. Using jump rings and jewelry pliers, attach butterfly charms evenly along the chain with the heart charm at one end.
     
  8. Use head pins and small glass beads to create 15 small bead charms. Make plain loops and attach them along the chain between the butterfly charms.

What a unique bracelet. I feel like all my bracelets have been gifts from other people and the ones I make end up being gifts to others so this project will continue my unlikely collection of gifts. I love how vintage it look after the ink bleeds out from the letters under the oval bezels, it's not something you find in typical charm bracelets and the messages make it personal and heartwarming.

What a great idea. I have always seen some beautiful jewelry made with these oval pendents but could never really find any that was what I wanted. I wondered where you could find some like this and did not know you could make your own to what you want by using scrapbook paper and the scrapbooking technique. This can be so fun to do and you can make it your own. I love the butterfly one because I love butterflies. I think I will mix hummingbirds and dragonflies too if I can find the scrapbook paper or on small enough to print off. A very fun tutorial and easy.
