I was doing this thing I often do, trolling the aisles at a crawl of the craft store looking for anything that might strike my fancy or create an immediate crafty whim. That’s when I saw this gigantic cross bezel pendant. Just the day before I had purchased a string of natural stone beads at our local fair. I was surprised that I could get such nice looking stones for so cheap and snapped a set up with no plans in mind. So when I saw this pendant, well, things just kind of came together so well.
Now, technically, this pendant is a Christmas gift for Momma, but no worries about spoiling her surprise – she’s not at all interested in computers and has my sister show her what’s been going down on the blog. But let’s get on with this cross pendant tutorial already.
For this project you will need:
Unstring your chip stone beads and choose some that you want to be sure to get into your pendant and push to the side.
Mix your resin per package instructions. Mix just a tiny amount if possible.
Pour the resin so that there is a very thin layer in the bottom.
And now you basically play Tetris with your beads. I tried to keep the holes for strings from showing too much and succeeded most of the time. The tweezers are an absolute necessity unless you want to get resin all over your fingers!
Set somewhere safe and allow to fully set. String it up with a necklace chain and you’re all set! It’s really that simple :)
I often link up at these parties.
