Hey everyone! Today marks the second Wednesday that I'm guest designing with the Paper Smooches crew and today I decided to do something a little different and meld my two fave hobbies together...stamping and jewelry making. I made two necklace pendants with the latest stamp sets from Paper Smooches. The first pendant features Vogue Adobe.
First I stamped the vase and rose and masked them. Then I stamped the hexagons in a mini pattern (thanks for the pattern ideas Kim). After using copics to color in the images, I then applied a layer of glaze and attached the image to a glass tile. To finish off the necklace I added a sterling silver bail and some thin silver wire for a chain. Here's a close up of the pendant:
The next pendant was a larger pendant and I used both images and text for this one from the Helping Hands set.
I started by stamping the hand and sentiment and then masked them. Using the small rectangle from the Helping Hands set I stamped a random pattern for the background. The images were colored in using copics and the pendant was made the same way as the first one. I used a heavier chain for the necklace as the glass tile used was considerably larger and heavier than the rose pendant. Here is a close up of the pendant:
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check back next Wednesday for some more Paper Smooches projects :)
