Graduation Card and Gift

Other than food, I won’t get to make many grad presents for my son’s guy friends but I will for some of the girls. 
I used the Graduation Subway Art printable I did on this card, along with some embellishments from KandCo’s “Life’s Little Occasions” collection.
This is the Graduation Medley Collection
For the present, I decided to make a necklace and I used Blue Moon’s “Lost and Found” collection of metal pendants as the focal. They come already stamped with different sentiments. I thought “Inspire” was a good choice for a grad.

I used two of Blue Moon’s metal chains and head pins and strung onyx, opalite and quartz beads on the headpins along with bead caps. I secured those to different lengths of chain with jump rings.
I wire wrapped some of the opalite beads and placed them randomly throughout the chain:

I hope the wonderful young lady this is for likes it!

I love both the card and necklace! "Inspire" seems kind of perfect...

The card and the necklace are both lovely! Such a lucky young lady! :)

Oh, she'll like it! Send it here if she doesn't...

Those opalite beads are so gorgeous, I love that material!

You're the sweetest Carol. And so are your gifts! I agree with Michelle, those opalites are so pretty; that colour is irresistible.

WOW WOW WOW. Will have to "steal" the card idea. I'm not good at jewelry-making, but like the concept. Maybe I can just attach the pendant with a ball chain....look for a new post from me in the next few days!!!! :)
