Retired - Golden Boughs Necklace in Olive

PROJECT N1072
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Beginner
Delicate gold paint highlights the branches of this beautiful tree stamping in this necklace, which evokes a feeling of winter forests all aglow.
Instructions
  1. Before you begin, watch the instructional video: How to Embellish Metal Stampings With Krylon Leafing Pens. This video will show you how to use the paint pen to embellish your stamping.
  2. Use an 18k gold leafing pen to carefully fill in the inside tree shape of your filigree tree of life stamping. Allow the paint to dry completely. If you want the back to remain solid olive, you can place masking tape onto it before you paint. Otherwise, repeat the process to paint the back of the tree as well.
  3. Cut an 18" length of matte gold plated slim rolo chain. Onto one end of the chain, place a jump ring. Use a second jump ring to attach a matte gold plated lobster clasp to the other end of the chain.
  4. Once the paint has completely dried, use a third jump ring to hang the stamping from the chain.
