The Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoast this week is to create a washer pendant that can be used on a necklace or other jewelry item. You can view the the thread, with instructions, here. I had a lot of fun with this! The hardest part is waiting for the Crystal Effects to dry for 24 hours. I love how shiny and pretty these are.
To make the first pendant, I used Razzleberry Lemonade dsp and some Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon. The second necklace is made with Night & Day Specialty dsp (from the Holiday Mini) and is threaded onto a pre-made necklace I picked up at a craft store. I made the little heart pendant myself using some wire and beads - cute, huh?
I'm thinking about making more and turning them into necklaces, bookmarks or key chains for little Christmas gifts. My kids wanted to make some as well, and they want to make their into ornaments to hang on our Christmas tree. These are kind of addicting, but relatively inexpensive to make. My husband even said, "Wow! You'd never know that started out as metal washers." :) Thanks for stopping by today and I'll see you back here soon!
