I love how Johnny Depp decided to keep the classic vampire look for Barnabas Collins. Almost all classic vampires have beautiful heirlooms with them and I have decided to "recreate" his ruby necklace.
Since I do not have a red ruby there are a few ways to do it. One is to get a fake ruby from craft stores or to create a fake red ruby with red paper. I have decided to use the 2nd method as I have all the materials at home.
1) A necklace (I am using one I braided for another previous project)
2) A cameo base setting and clear epoxy resin stickers (I got them on etsy)
3) An ornament
4) A red paper
5) Hot glue gun
7) Jump rings
Cut the red paper such that it fits the cameo base setting.
Step 2:Stick the red paper to the cameo base setting.
Stick the ornament on the centre of the necklace.
Stick the clear epoxy resin sticker over the cameo base setting.
Attach the cameo base setting onto the necklace with the jump rings.
Tah Dah! Your own ruby necklace!
Do I remind you of Barnabas Collins? :)
