handmade necklace pendant tutorial


I'm really into jewelry lately.  And like a good DIY'er, I figured out how to make customized necklace pendants myself.  It was super easy.  I'm not sure why I didn't do it before now.


I started out with these blank pendants from Hobby Lobby,


and cut this scrap of patterned paper down to fit inside the pendant.


I then used Glossy Accents...


to fill in the entire inside, on top of the paper.  I let it dry over night and it set up thick and clear.


I loved it so much, I decided to make a bunch more the same way.


With red polka dot paper and a square pendant blank.


And this one is a circular copper blank.  I also used a charm from my scrapbook stash.


For this pendant, I used yellow and white chevron paper and then wrote on some words with a scrapbook pen, before sealing it with the glossy accents.


Anytime I don't have a necklace to match one of my outfits from now on, I'll probably just make a new one!!

  2. these are lovely. Unfortunately, I can't find the blanks for under £4 (about $6) over here... just not worth it!
