St. Patrick's Day Charming Necklace
I decided to create a (green) necklace to wear on St. Patrick's Day to keep from getting pinched. So I hunted through my collection of vintage jewelry and found this pendant that was missing the jewel. It's two inches tall by one and a half inches wide. Perfect. I used Glossy Accents to adhere fine green glitter along the inside edge of the pendant, then fine white glitter in the center. Meanwhile that dried, I made a very tiny label on my PC and used clear tape to attach it to a very tiny glass vial. Which I then filled with fine green glitter (Lucky Dust) and sealed with a cork. Then I applied a couple of drops of gel superglue onto the back of the vial and set it onto the center of the pendant. I love using the gel (as opposed to liquid) superglue because it doesn't run and it sets instantly. After that was all done, I went back into the vintage jewelry, pulled out a couple of green beaded necklaces, took them apart and created one that matches perfectly! So, there it is. A very charming necklace, perfect to wear on St. Patrick's Day!!
After St. Patrick's Day, I think I will remove that label and replace it with one for Halloween, one that will say something like....."Eye of Newt Powder" or "Magic Spell dust" or something a little more spooky!
Yay! I love it!!!
