I've recently discovered The Plaid Barn, a daily deals site for craft items. The package above is 'A POP OF COLOR' . I ordered six sets, and they came all together in this wrapper.
PACKAGING: Simple, just an envelope with the supplies. Oddly, no invoice or anything about The Plaid Barn.
SHIPPING: The fine print said it would ship on or before April 19th, I got it on the 26th. A little longer than what I'm used to with US shipping, but that's okay.
QUALITY: I'm not a cabochon expert, but the quality doesn't seem like anything to complain about. Same goes for the finding quality. As you an see in the picture before, one of the cabs isn't perfect.
Earring backs were included, which was unexpected and appreciated.
I thought I would put together a quick tutorial using some of the items, going a little beyond just gluing. (Only a little though, like one step further, haha.)
+ your favorite glue. I'm using E6000
+ pliers / wire cutters
Apply some glue to your earring back. Carefully place a jump ring on top, so only half of it will be glued.
Press on your flower cabochon. Leave the studs to the side to dry.
Slide on your bead cap and then your round bead unto your head pin.
Make your loops: bend the headpin and then snip off the excess.
After your glue has dried, slip on the round bead unto the visible part of your jump ring. Finish your loop.
Tada you are finished! You can also change it up, use different head pins, with or with-out bead cap, etc.
Thanks for reading! Has anyone else purchased from The Plaid Barn? I'm waiting on another package from them, hope to get it soon!
