Retired - Dakota Necklace

PROJECT N3023
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
By using a silver Krylon leafing pen on your Vintaj Arte Metal leaf pendant, you can add beautiful metallic highlights to your necklace. This is a fantastic project if you like to draw or enjoy incorporating line work into your pieces.
Instructions
You will need a clean work space and a piece of scrap wire to use as your glue applicator. Before you begin, please watch the video on How to Embellish Metal Stampings with Krylon Leafing Pens.
  1. Begin by taking your Vintaj Arte Metal leaf pendant and lay it flat on your work space, making sure the raised leaf design is facing up.
  2. Next take your leafing pen and following what you learned in the video, begin very slowly and carefully lining the raised leaf vein design on your pendant. Remember to go as slow as necessary to avoid drawing your lines on too thick or having them bleed into other parts of the pendant.
  3. Once your are done outlining the leaf pendant and drawing on the leaf pattern, set your pendant aside to dry properly.
  4. Once your pendant is dry, take your glue applicator and add a very small amount of glue to the center area of your pendant (refer to the photo) and pick up one SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystal rhinestone with your tweezers, and place it on your pendant. Set aside to dry.
  5. Next, open up a jump ring using your chain nose pliers.
  6. Slide your jump ring through the hole at the top of your leaf pendant and close.
  7. Open up the clasp on your finished chain, and slide the chain through your jump ring. Close the clasp.
  8. Your necklace is now ready.
