Here is the first of many pendants that I will be making with my two best friends!
I made a small batch of Jewelry clay and placed it in this bezel. Then, I added beads that were already pre-strung to the edging as shown. If you leave the beads on the string, it sure is easy to create a superb edge! Only you and I know that I did not add these beads one at a time.
Then I added a little baby powder to the surface of the clay and pressed in this wooden dowel.
Now I have created a bezel within a bezel!
The clay will hold shapes.
I brushed Pearl Ex Sky Blue pigment across the surface which made it this fabulous colour.
Then I let my clay air dry overnight.
The next day I added this paper image.
I sealed the paper with Aleene's decoupage medium like I normally do in a bezel.
Last step, I dropped in some Jewelry Resin and had a fabulous finished pendant!
