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!!


  1. So pretty! I know that our readers will love it, too. If you get a chance we would love for you to link up this craft at our weekly Bowdabra Showcase.

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

  3. These are so cute. I have a link party tomorrow, and I would love it if you would link this post. It is called Wednesdays Adorned From Above Link Party.
    I hope to see you there. Have a great Day.
