Instructions
Begin by finding an image to use for your pendant. We chose a vintage-looking tiger sticker from Cavallini & Co., but be creative. Look at scrapbooking materials or copyright-free images. If you choose to print out your own copyright-free image from the internet, be sure to have it printed on a color laser printer, as opposed to an inkjet printer. Inkjet images are water soluble and have a tendency to run when the glaze is applied.After you find your image, carefully cut it out to the size of your Patera pendant. It is best to err on the side of being too large, as you can always trim the image down. Depending on how thin the paper your image is on, you might want to first glue down a piece of plain white paper so that the image doesn't get too dark when you apply the glaze.Using a soft paintbrush, paint a thin layer of the Nunn Glue on the reverse of your image. Press the image into the pendant and smooth out any bubbles. Allow to dry fully.Once you have your image glued in place, you must now apply the Magic-Glos UV Resin. Do not shake the bottle, but gently squeeze out enough resin to fill the pendant. Move the pendant around so that the resin spreads out to the edges, fully covering the image. At this time, if you notice that any bubbles have formed, pop them with a pin or needle. You don't want bubbles dried into your final design!Place the pendant into the UV light (average drying time is 5–10 minutes), or if you don't have the UV light, place the pendant in a sunny spot and allow to dry (drying time slightly longer without using the UV light).Cut fourteen lengths of chain at approximately 1 3/4" (twenty links) long. Cut thirteen lengths of wire at about two inches long each.Open a jump ring and thread it through the loop at the top of the pendant, but do not close it yet.Add another jump ring to the one attached to the pendant, and close the first jump ring.Open the last jump ring and thread it through the last link of two of your pre-cut lengths of chain. Close the jump ring again.With a pre-cut segment of wire, create a loop at one end. Slide the loop through the last link of one of the chain segments attached to the pendant.Finish the loop by wrapping the excess wire of one side around the other part to the wire about two or three times, thereby turning it into a wrapped loop.Thread a goldstone nugget onto the wire, begin to make another wrapped loop at the other end of the wire and slide the loop through the last link of another pre-cut segment of chain, finishing the wrapped loop as you do so.Continue creating wrapped loops with alternating goldstone nuggets and turquoise oval beads sandwiched between two of the small bead caps, joining these beaded segments with a length of chain between each one.When you have come all the way around, using all of your wire segments and chain lengths, attach the last wire loop to the other chain segment on the pendant.To create the tassel underneath the pendant, cut two lengths of chain at ten links long an one length of chain at twelve lengths long.Open a jump ring and thread it through the loop at the bottom of the pendant. Add another jump ring to the first, and close the first.To the last jump ring, add the three lengths of chain, the longest one in the middle.Thread three headpins, two with a goldstone nugget, and one with a turquoise oval sandwiched between two small bead caps.Create a loop at the end of each headpin, and thread each through the last link of each of the three lengths of chain, the turquoise in the middle and the two goldstone nuggets on either side.Finish each wrapped loop and trim off excess wire.Tip: Check package quantities for each component. You may have extra material to make more than one finished project, or will have leftovers for other projects. In some cases, adding on just one more package of a component may be all you need to make multiple pieces.All designs © Beadaholique Inc.
