New in My Shop: Chalkboard Necklaces

I've been wanting to experiment with chalkboard paint for a while.  I'd of course like to have a wall to write on, but I just can't convince myself to paint a wall black.


Instead, I decided to use it on jewelry.  First, I played with the idea of making rings, but I think the ring would have to be fairly large in order to make it effective.  So, I decided on necklaces.  I tried the paint on wood and plastic.  The wood soaked up the paint, but the plastic made for a smooth surface.


Each necklace comes with a small piece of chalk for you to be creative with.  These are currently available in my Etsy shop!
