Simply Charming

Stampin pretty simply adorned vintage vogue

Let me introduce you to my first charm and chain from Stampin' Up!'s Simply Adorned Jewelry line.  Combine these new charms with your love of paper crafting and you have an infinite number of looks–so define your mood and start crafting.

The locket-style charms with hinges are perfect for tucking in what I consider "micro cards."  I created three different styles of "micro cards" above.  TIP:  For a quick and balanced 1 x 1" square, I used a 1 1/4" Square Punch and cropped each side by 1/4".

The necklace charms come in two sizes of rectangles plus the 1 x 1" square that I purchased.  TIP:  The 1 x 1" dimension is the size of the insert.  In addition, 5/8" circle and square charms (also locket-style) are available.  They're absolutely sumptuous on the Simply Adorned Bracelet (117342).  Click here for full details on Simply Adorned jewelry (also featured on page 28 of the Occasions Mini).


The coordinating chains are offered in 24" (116800) and 34" (116853).  I ordered the longer of the two so that I could double it up . . . but have every intention of grabbing the 24" for a change-up.  My hubby was "hired" to be photographer today.  Thanks, Scott!  TIP:  The chain clasp and charm SHOULD show.  They are so classy.

IMPORTANT TIP:  To avoid scratching or a too tight fit inside the charm, I removed my rhinestone from the brad before adhering (Very Vintage) and cropped the legs off the black brad (Fresh and Friendly).  Just to be safe, you may want to use only paper and ink and keep layers to a bare minimum.

  1. Hi Joyce: Thank you so much for leaving me a comment and your kind sentiments. I love what I’m doing but a story like yours gives me added inspiration and motivation to keep it up. Hugs, M

  2. Hi Mary, I have been a lurker out here for some time. I am strictly a hobby demonstrator as I have a medically fragile daughter so I am mostly homebound with her. I am never able to get to meetings of my upline or conferences. Your blog has been so wonderful for me to keep up with new ideas and I just wanted you to know that today is exceptional. Thank you. I also enjoyed seeing you in a photo. Beautiful.

  3. I still plan to get the 24″ chain at 10% off . . . however, I thought getting the 1 x 1 charm and longer chain would be a bit different . . . great reminder, Ellen. Hugs, M

  4. Demonstrators who attended 2009 convention can order one 1″ x 1-1/4″ charm and one 24″ chain at a 10-percent discount–plus they would still receive their 20-percent instant income.

    This is automatically applied. Must order before the end of February!

  5. Simply charming indeed! Thanks so much for sharing your photo too, gives a much better idea of the size. Looks great on you!!!

  6. Wow, Mary. You look just great. 🙂 I just saw the chain and charm last night for myself. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Beautiful! Your necklace looks gorgeous on you as well!
    Thanks so much for sharing this.

  8. Wonderful jewelry. So clever to make several options when gift giving! Love your px.

  9. I was wondering if they looked as great on as they do in the catalog… and thanks to you I can see that they sure do. Wow, very elegant. Thanks for the picture. You’re gorgeous!!
