How to Create a Jewelry Mandela using Dew Drops

Today, we are going to create a Mandela necklace using paper, Dew Drops, jewelry findings and a ribbon chain.  It is a super easy idea that would make a great gift for a special friend or to wear yourself.


2 inch circle punched from heavy paper that was pre-painted with acrylic paint – alternately you could work on a 2 inch flat wooden disc.

Metallic Dew Drops (regular (Mardi Gras) and mini size (Classified Mini Dew Drops))

Posca Pen – white acrylic paint pen.

Pitt Pen – Black Bold

Uniball Gel Pen – Silver

Clear drying liquid adhesive

Jewelry Findings

Ribbon or chain for hanging


Assemble all your ingredients and think about the design you will use (Pinterest has lots of great examples).

Punch a two inch circle from heavy watercolor paper

Lay out your design on the circle.  My top tip here is when you get it how you like take a photo with your camera, so you have a record of your preferred design.

Starting at the center adhere Dew Drops to the paper with liquid adhesive, referring to your photo as needed.  Continue until all Dew Drops are in place.  Let dry

Add accents with the Posca Pen and let dry.

Add accents with Black Pitt Pen and let dry

Finally, add silver accents if desired.

Add jewelry finding to make necklace focal

Finally add ribbon or chain to the focal and you have a super cute necklace for gift giving.

Hope you are keeping cool if it’s summer where you are.  Have fun with this project and if posting on social media use #dewdroplove so we can see all of your lovely creations.

Mary Ellen from Creative Time With ME is here! I have a fun jewelry making tutorial to share with y’all!



  1. Start out with your Ring Base Blank
  2. Cut Scrapbook Adhesives 12 by 12 Adhesive Sheets into the shape of your ring base
  3. Peel the backing from your cut Scrapbook Adhesives 12 by 12 Adhesive Sheets and attach it to the ring base
  4. Now peel the front backing from your cut Scrapbook Adhesives 12 by 12 Adhesive Sheet
  5. Take your Ribbon and twist it
  6. While you are twisting the Ribbon attach it to the front of your ring.
  7. Do this by placing it onto the exposed Scrapbook Adhesives 12 by 12 Adhesive Sheet
  8. Continue to twist the ribbon around the top of your Ring Base Blank
  9. Once the top of your ring is covered bring out the Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue 
  10. You will use the Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue  to attach any remaining twisted Ribbon onto your ring
  11. When this part is done your ring will appear to be a twisted ribbon rosette
  12. Bring out The Robin’s Nest Mardi Gras Dew Drops  to place in the center of your rosette

Cute Earring Boxes and Halloween Earrings

Good morning! I have a fun project to share with you today!


I recently found a company that makes dies to create fun earrings at home and I couldn’t wait to start making some holiday ones. I knew as soon as the dies and leather arrived I was going to make earring boxes.

I did a google search for svg’s to cut and found a great three piece set over on etsy. I decided to create Halloween boxes and earrings and knew the dew drops were the perfect accent for the fronts.


Once I cut both boxes out (I used the same sheet of patterned paper and just turned it over) I started decorating the front of each with different die cut stickers. Once I had the front’s how I liked I added my dew drops. For the witchy legs I used OBSIDIAN DIAMOND DEW DROPS in two of the corners.



For the pumpkin box I used the CITRINE DIAMOND DEW DROPS. I added these down the left side of the box to give it a longer look.



For the earrings I used the inner card that cuts with the svg and added my earrings. I left the cards plain so the earrings stood out better.

Thanks for taking a look and I hope you’ll give these boxes a try. You can use them for so many other things!

Necklace with Dew Drops

Hello! Today I am on the blog for Robin’s Nest using their dew drops, brightly colored drops of awesomeness!!  

I created this necklace using the following items – 
Tim Holtz pocket watch
18″ Ball Chain
First, I decided on the image I wanted to use them using the template from the watch packaging, I cut out the face and glued it to the inside back of the pocket watch. I then added 5 pink dew drops and left them loose inside, snapped the back on the watch, added the chain and it is ready to wear!

Make a Dew Drop embellished Pendant, encased in resin.

Hello all,


Take collage to a miniature level by encasing collage materials and dew drops in UV Clear Resin.  This technique creates a great effect of depth and texture to the finished piece.  Check out the step by step instructions shown below.


The Robins Nest Supplies:

Goldenberry Dew Drops

Kelly Green Dew Drops

Pool Dew Drops

Other Materials:

  • UV Clear Resin
  • UV Light
  • Paper scraps
  • Paper/fabric flowers
  • Lazer gem stars
  • Bead Landing Found Object.


1) Use scrap piece of mixed media paper for the background of the pendant.  Cut in a circle and adhere.

2) Lay down a few remnantx book print pieces over background and cover with another layer of resin.


3) Set the resin under a UV light per manufacturer’s instructions.

4) For the next layer add paper/fabric flowers and dew drops.

5) Cover with another layer of resin, adding a start prior to the resin being set.


6) Place under the UV light again (follow manufacturer’s instructions)


7) Now is it ready for a chain.


I really liked working with quick setting UV Resin for this project (rather then the standard air dry).  It made working with layer much easier.  I hope you enjoyed seeing another way to use dew drops, they are very fun and versatile.

Happy day!

How to Use Dew Drops to Make Jewelries

Hello Crafty Friends!
Fairuz Fabiha here from Craftivation. Today I’ll be sharing with you a fun way to use dewdrops for jewelry making!


1. At first I took a metal pendant base and attached it with a metal filigree.

2. Added a piece of white paper to create a contrast.

3. Added dewdrops and designed it to my likings.

4. Finally finished it off by adding the chain.

I decided to try the same thing with different colored dewdrops and all the results are fabulous!

6. I finished off the earrings by wrapping the cork with a wire and attaching hooks to it.

Magical Dragonfly Mask ~ with Dew Drops

Hello all,
I am excited to share the mask I made for auction in support of the Utah Arts Festival.  My goal was to create a mask that prominently featured Dew Drops.  This is the second year that I have participated in this event and each year I have created a Dragonfly themed mask.  Because I love Dragonfly’s of course!
I love how the Dew Drops add texture and dimension to the piece.  I wanted to give the effect of a bulbous eye on one side with the wings on the other side.  Be sure to scroll down to see the step by step process.
Mystical Dragonfly

The Robin’s Nest:


Other materials:
  • Paper pressed mask
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Stencil
  • Texture paste
  • Wire
  • Fabric
  • Matte varnish
  • Paper flowers
  • Dried baby’s breath


1) Cut paper pressed mask to desired shape.
2) Apply texture paste to tissue paper and adhere to mask.  Color with acrylic paint.


3) Adhere dew drops around eye of mask.


4) Create wings with fabric and wire; fix to mask with wire and adhesive.  Adorn wings with dew drops (into shapes of flowers) and cover base of wings (at the point that they meet the mask).  Embellish mask with paper flowers and dried baby’s breath.


There is something very gratifying about creating art for a good cause! I hope you have enjoyed this project.
Happy day!
