Chunky Cupcake Necklace

Some of my older readers may remember the cupcake necklace I made Mia for Christmas using a cupcake bead from Bead Divas I bought while in AZ over the summer. Anyway-I had no idea how easy these cute cupcake beads are to make. I used white clay for the frosting then painted over it with pink glitter nail polish. I used red swarovski crystals for the sprinkles. The pink and red together reminds of me Strawberry Shortcake, so I call this her Strawberry Shortcake necklace.
I decided to make Mia's BFF a matching cupcake so her mommy can make her a necklace. Luckily I already had all the beads for Mia's necklace so it didn't cost any extra for me to make it. I have to admit, I'm addicted to making these cute beads now! I've made several different colors, so if any of you are interested in these little beauties let me know! I've had to upload these pictures on my husband's computer that doesn't have photoshop so I was unable to put my watermark on these. Hopefully MY computer will be up and running soon!

The necklace turned out super cute. I love the look of the pink and red together. Plus anything with crystal on it is cute to me.
Great job!
