Mom’s special day is quickly approaching!
What are you creating for your mom this Mother’s Day? Here is a sparkling design inspiration to spark your creativity.
Show your mother how much she means to you by saying it in crystal: embellish an expression of love with her favorite color of Swarovski crystals on a smooth white background, making this sparkling bangle a thoroughly modern memento of a very special day — one that your mum will keep forever.
Use Swarovski Crystal 2088 Flatbacks in whatever size you like to use (here is a helpful stone size chart). This bangle was created using the 3ss, but if this is too small for your liking, other popular sizes include the 5ss, 10ss and 12ss which all give nice detail.
The supplies and tools that you will need include: a white bangle, glue (E 6000 is popular or a two part epoxy), a paper tooth pick, transfer film, 12x4cm transfer sheet and tweezers.
STEP 1: Print out the pattern in a 1:1 ratio where the height of the text is 9mm.
STEP 2: Place the transfer sheet over the pattern. Using tweezers or a glue stick, place the Swarovski Flat Back No Hotfix (this bangle used style 2000 SS03 Indian Siam) over the text.
STEP 3: Place the transfer film over the text and pull the transfer film back to get all the crystals on the film as shown in our illustrations with this step.
STEP 4: Apply two part adhesive glue onto the Swarovski Flat back No Hotfix (style 2000 SS03 Indian Siam) with a toothpick.
STEP 5: Affix the transfer film onto the bangle and press the stones gently onto the bangle. Let it cure for the length of the time indicated on the glue package before removing the transfer film.
Give this gift with joy, knowing you made it not only with your hands, but more importantly, with your heart!
A Mother’s Love is Forever.
