This jewelry tutorial is by M. Carmen Sánchez (aka Cuchy). She has two awesome projects that can be used as jewelry, ornaments, or incorporated into your other projects as embellishments or dangles. Give the pendants as gifts or keep them all to yourself!
When Julie asked for some holiday projects to share I didn’t think twice. I love everything related to Christmas and I always try to give something handmade at our family Christmas dinner.
I want to share a couple of projects with you: a last minute glass necklace and a stamped pendant. I hope you like them as much as I do.
Easy Peasy Glass Pendant Tutorial
- A piece of patterned paper. Better if it is double-sided.
- A glass pebble.
- A bail.
- Glossy accents or Diamond Glaze.
- Ribbon or cord.
- Sanding block.
ONE: Choose your image spot on the patterned paper and cut a circle slightly bigger than your pebble.
Cut the excess paper with scissors and sand it so it fits the pebble exactly.
Add a layer of Glossy Accents to protect the paper on the back of the pebble and let it dry.
Here are some images of other sizes, paper images and shapes using the same basic instructions:
UTEE Pendant Tutorial
- Memory Glass (2)
- Memory Frame
- Black UTEE
- detailed rubber stamps
- Versamark/Perfect Medium
- Perfect Pearls
- scraps of paper
- bulldog clip
- dangles, beads or charms
- Glimmer Mist (I used iridescent gold)
- Distress Ink
- heat gun
ONE: Apply Versamark on the edges of one of the Memory Glass pieces and apply a layer of UTEE.
THREE: Re-heat the UTEE and once melted, press your rubber stamp firmly into the UTEE until it dries. 10-20 seconds.
Lift the stamp and see the texture. If you do not like how it looks, just re-heat the powders and start again.
FOUR: Ink another stamp with StazOn (it has to be an ink that works on porous surfaces) and stamp it on the back of the glass (opposite side of the UTEE).
SEVEN: Apply Perfect Medium or Versamark over the stamped UTEE.
