Love and Lace, a Rue Romantique Necklace

Posted on | May 1, 2013 | 2 Comments

The romance continues – for me that is with Kristen Robinson’s wonderful Rue Romantique Line of lovelies!!!! I love incorporating these pieces with bits of antique lace as I feel that they have such a story to tell and they are just so reminiscent of days gone by.

Supplies Used:Kristen Robinson

Rue Romantique Bezel

Rue Romantique Chain – Rhinestone

Rue Romantique Bezel Stencil

SLK Chain

Ice Resin

WeldBond

Vintage Gem Tintype

Vintage Lace and Fabric

Rue RomantiqueI again chose to incorporate an antique gem tintype along with the stunning bling of the Rue Romantique Chain. The chain added another layer of beauty and just the right amount of bling to brighten and further romanticize this piece. Rusty chain was used as the remainder of the necklace as I did not want to detract from the focal point of the necklace.

I used my sewing matching to create a beautiful little fabric base for my bezel, adding antique lace and a bit of ribbon at the top to be able to tie my bezel to the finished piece. A jump ring was stitched at the top two corners on the reverse side for the chain to be attached to. I also stitched a length of ribbon to be the part of the necklace that lays around your neck.

The stencil allowed me to cut my vintage tintype to just the right size/shape before gluing into the bottom of the bezel using WeldBond. I also used just a bit of WeldBond on the bottom of the chain to adhere it to the bezel as well. When the adhesive was dry I sealed the image with Ice Resin and allowed it to cure for 24 hours. The finished bezel was then tied onto the prepared necklace. I love the combination of the old rusty chain, the bling of the Rue Romantique Chain, the old of the lace and image and the beautiful bezel it is house in.
