Retired - Woodland Glass Dome Necklace

PROJECT N3064
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Intermediate
Create a whimsical woodland scene within a sleek glass dome and show off your imagination in style.
Instructions
  1. Cut 40" of your red ball chain with your flush cutters. (Remember, you can make your chain length as long as you like). Attach a red ball chain connector clasp onto one end. Set aside for now.
  2. Begin by watching the video on How to Make the Zombie Glass Dome Necklace as it uses a similar technique. For this project, you will be creating a woodland scene in your antiqued brass bezel pendant base. Make sure to leave enough room around the edges to allow for the glass dome to fit on top and enclose your scene once done.
  3. Following what you learned in the video, put on your gloves and mix a gum ball sized amount of sage green Crystal Clay.
  4. Create a hill-like shape of green clay at the center of your base, about 3/4" tall.
  5. Next, using your flush cutters, carefully snip off the loop on your pewter deer charm.
  6. After you have your Crystal Clay in place, decide where the front of your scene will be. Place your pewter deer charm on the top of the hill and place your two ceramic mushroom beads on the side, closer to the base. See photo for placement assistance.
  7. Next, cover the bottom portion of your green clay with an assortment of green Czech glass seed beads in Emerald Mix. Make sure to add some seed beads to the back as well.
  8. Place your glass dome on top, making sure it fits over your clay and covers the clay neatly. Clean up any clay that may be pushed out at the base.
  9. Add a dab of E-6000 glue onto the top center portion of your glass dome and add on your silver plated dome cap. Hold in place for a few moments until it dries.
  10. Once dry, using your chain nose pliers open up a jump ring and slide it through the loop on your pendant cap and close.
  11. Slide your red ball chain through your jump ring. Pull through and connect to the other end of the clasp.
  12. You're done!
