And here we have today's incredible Bird Song jewelry and tutorial by Denise Hahn! She's created some stunning pieces that you are going to adore! There are so many unique ways to create fabulous crafts with Bird Song. Here Denise explains her inspiration behind these beautiful accessories. Check out her wonderful tutorial in which she shows you how to create a marvelous Bird Song cuff bracelet! Wow! Take it away, Denise!

"As soon as I saw Bird Song I knew I wanted to create some jewelry pieces. Graphic 45 papers are great to add to soldering and resin projects but not everyone is a jewelry maker, so I included a tutorial for anyone who wants to take their Graphic 45 out on the town with them. All you will need is a blank cuff you can get from your local craft store and some heavy duty glue. I am sure you have the rest of what you need on hand. Trust me, I have been wearing these pieces over the last few days and people just rave about them. Oh how I love to say, "I made it!". Hope you will give some Graphic 45 inspired jewelry a try!" -Denise Hahn

What a beautiful necklace and cuff! All the paper collections this year are just outstanding.

It is astounding what artists come up with using the Graphic 45 papers. So inspiring to see them. Thank you.

Oh beautiful!! My Bird Song should be here on Tuesday!!! CAn't wait!!

I keep flirting with jewelry...now I guess I'll have to make it a real romance! Denise has inspired me to make some custom baubles with one of my favorite papers (or any G45 paper for that matter). Thanks for the tutorial Denise. Happy Labor Day!

Wonderful pieces, thank you for sharing!

I have fallen in love with Denise's jewelry--absolutely beautiful and inspired! Love the tutorial!

Thrilled to have an asian collection from G45 !

Bird Song is such a gorgeous collection and it seems to be perfect for jewelry making too! Gorgeous necklace!

This is the line I have been long awaiting for ever since I first saw the Pagoda that was done... it inspired me to create a box with an Asian theme for my friends 50th birthday and I been waiting to acquire the line to complete his gift with a mini album using the line...I love the design team at G45 and the many ways they have displayed creativity for another beautiful line of papers...
BTW, does that bangle come as part of the winners swag.....lol!

Wow, thanks for the inspiration. I just love your jewelry it is so beautiful. But seriously are you trying to kill me? I'm dying already to get my hands on Bird Song...waiting...waiting...and wham you post more pictures of things I want to try and I cannot stand the pain any longer. Well, at least I have all my other collections to keep me company while I wait. ID Amy

The jewelry looks so today with an edgy touch of class and a very Vintage appeal....I love every piece ....especially the bangle....
