Finished Studio Cloth Necklace
The base of this statement jewelry piece is studio cloth!! I started by napkin collaging both sides of the studio cloth. Since studio cloth doesn’t ravel, there was no need to hem or finish the edges, so there was no excess bulk. After I had the piece collaged, I gave both sides a final finish coat of PPA.
Next, I measured and marked the placement of the equally spaced holes for rivets—six on each of the long sides of the triangle and one at the bottom tip. I pierced the initial holes and set the rivets with my Crop-a-dile tool.
After gathering all my trinkets and ephemera pieces, I added eyepins and jump rings to attached each piece into a riveted hole. Making the eyepins was easy-peasy with the new looper pliers introduced at the Winter 2013 CHA trade show. Last step was adding the chain
The bottom trinket is a tiny album that opens to reveal an accordion strip of blank paper ready for stamping or decorating. I replaced this blank strip with a selection of Graphic 45 paper.

Have you ever wondered where the Faeries live? Kat Campau knows that they live, in colorful Faerie houses made of Studio Cloth and then painted with the finest Acrylic Paints . Each house can be customized with Paper Napkin Collage or texturized with Mica. Their houses are placed near tree trunks, on a bush and in our flower gardens. Faeries are a delight to have for neighbors, so why not build a few faerie houses and invite them in! No need to go to a big box store – everything you need to build your Faerie house it can be found at one stop at USArtQuest - just click here and shop.
