Instructions
Note: You will need a paint brush for this project. Please make sure to clean your paint brush (with water is fine) between steps. You will also need a toothpick or small piece of wire to use as an applicator for this project.
  1. To begin, find 4 images that you like on your square sheet of Alice In Wonderland graphics. Two of the images you be using in their entirety (23mm square) and the other two you will be cutting down considerably. See photo. Cut out your images to fit the squares on your two Patera raised tag pendants.
  2. Using a paint brush, brush a layer of Mod Podge onto the backside of one of your 23mm images and place it into the raised square of the Patera 7/8" raised tag pendant. The image will be a little small for the bezel so scoot it up so that the paper edge lines up on the top and right hand sides. Press into place and let dry. Repeat this step with your other 23mm image on the other side of the Patera bezel (you might need to cut it down just slightly to fit). Once dry, paint a layer of Mod Podge onto the top side of each image, making sure to go all the way to the edges. Prop up your pendant so that nothing is touching the glue on either side while it dries. Once dry, paint another layer of Mod Podge over the first. Let dry.
  3. For your two smaller images that fit into the 1/2" Patera raised tag pendant link, spread glue on their backs and place them into their appropriate places on the pendant link. Press into place and let dry. See photo. Once dry, paint a layer of Mod Podge onto the top side of each image, making sure to go all the way to the edges. Prop up your pendant link so that nothing is touching the glue on either side while it dries. Once dry, paint another layer of Mod Podge over the first. Let dry.
  4. Please watch the video on How to Use BeadSmith's Magical Tray and Magical Pick Up Tool for Flatback Rhinestones. Following what you learned in the video, place your Swarovski flat back rhinestones in hematite and crystal golden shadow onto your raised tag pendants as seen in the photos. To get the rhinestones to stick to the metal, use a toothpick or small piece of wire as an applicator, and place small dabs of E6000 directly onto the metal. Then place your flatbacks into the glue. Let dry. Please feel free to place your rhinestones where ever you like, use the design in the photo as a guideline and follow it if you like, or go out on your own.
  5. At this time, also apply 3 flatback rhinestones to the round toggle clasp ring following the same method as above. Let dry.
  6. Open a 6mm black finish oval jump ring and connect your two bezel pendants together (the link and the pendant). Close the jump ring.
  7. Fold your chain in half and find the middle bubble chain link. Open a 6mm oval jump ring and connect it to this center chain link and also the loop at the top of your connected pendants. Close the jump ring.
  8. On one end of your chain, open and link a jump ring to the end chain link as well as the loop on your toggle bar which is shaped like a key. Close the jump ring. Go to the other side of your chain and link a jump ring to that end chain link and the loop connected to your toggle clasp ring. Close the jump ring.
  9. Enjoy!
