Sometimes I get such a great idea that I don't even want to wait for my resin to cure before I show you!
Can you believe how big this necklace was? It cost me less than $10 when I spotted it in a bead vendors booth in Toronto.
I knew I would be breaking the necklace up for these slices. I'll have enough pieces to last a very long time. The components are made of plastic and resemble a slice of bark on the edges.
Meanwhile, I had this glossy page of vintage jewels in my paper file. This bouquet of jeweled brooches never failed to inspire me.
I cut out my favorite paper images and arranged them on my new plastic bead slices. When they fit, I glued them in place and sealed my paper with Ultra Seal
. My next step was to carefully paint Jewelry Resin
across the surface as a glaze. This would seal my paper images to the plastic slice permanently.
Since my slices are not flat, I arranged them in a bed of rocks so they would sit better and the glaze wouldn't drip off the edges.
It sure does look like a necklace in the making!
I hope to finish it for tomorrow's post!
