Concrete Bee Necklace

PROJECT N781
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
Simple but striking, the focal pendant of this necklace features a shiny brass bee resting upon matte finished concrete. The contrast of the two elements is what helps to make this design really work.
Instructions
Please note you will also need a disposable mixing cup, some way of measuring tablespoons and teaspoons, tap water, and something such as a popsicle stick to stir your concrete.
  1. Please watch the video: How to Make Concrete Jewelry.
  2. In the video you will learn how to mix your concrete and pour it into a bezel. Based upon what you learned, pour concrete into your oval bezel. Let cure before going onto the next step.
  3. Once the concrete has fully cured, spread E6000 glue on the backside of the brass bee. Turn over and press into place on top of the concrete. Let dry.
  4. Open your pre-made chain necklace and slide your pendant onto it. Close the chain back up.
  5. All done, enjoy!
