For my mom's "half-birthday" I made her a "bird and believe" themed necklace using the Close To My Heart Base & Bling chain and square pendant (page 80 of the Spring/Summer Idea Book).
In addition to the rhinestone gem, I added the Believe and the little wren birdhouse charm (both from from Hobby Lobby). Mom loves to feed and watch the birds and hear them sing in their yard. Her favorite is the little brown wren who sings so pretty. She loves blue too -- the bird under the square glass cover is from the Skylark CTMH paper packet.
Using the Skylark paper, I covered a dollar-store jewelry box to coordinate with the necklace. I paper pieced the dragonfly and "wings" to add to the top of the box.
The finished necklace! With many thanks to my DH for attaching the charms with his micro-pliers!
Tip: If you paper-piece something into your square or circle pendant under the window, use the Base & Bling Adhesive dots (cut to fit). Don't use Liquid Glass on the paper--it will ruin it. Liquid Glass works well if you use the Base & Bling Style Sheet stickers since they're sturdier material. On this necklace, I used small glue dots in each corner, which happen to show more in the photos than they do in real life.
