I did it myself: glass pendant | Lovely Designs

When I ordered the magnets for this project, I was sent a variety of sample materials along with them. (Don’t you just love free stuff?). Well I couldn’t wait to experiment. I was browsing through the selection of botanicals on The Vintage Moth when I came across this image and the idea hit me. I had also just purchased (another) used copy of the complete works of shakespeare. Don’t laugh. I was brought up on the Bard’s plays and I love them. This particular book is fairly compact with beautifully yellowed pages. Some quick work in illustrator and I was ready to go.

I printed out my design and coated it with Krylon “Preserve It!” archival spray ensure that my ink wouldn’t run when I applied glue.

 

Then I cut out my design and, using Aleene’s Paper Glaze, adhered it to my glass cab. To protect the paper further and to seal it against water, I layered a couple of coats of polyurethane varnish on the back of it.

 

 

After waiting for about half an hour to make sure everything was dry enough to move forward, I used E6000 glue to adhere the bail to the top of it. The girl at the store assured me that this glue would stick anything to anything! it is, however, extremely gummy and it was almost impossible to get the tiny amount I needed. I found that using a skewer to extract a drop was the best way to apply it, then used that same skewer to scrape away any excess glue that seeped out.
  

 

And just like that, I have something pretty and romantic to wear. Thanks for letting me show off my beautiful pendant!
