A few weeks ago I decided that I was just going to make one. I had scraps of metal on my table and so I cut some up and textured it and went to work. Here is what I ended up with.
I cut a disk out of silver sheet and I rounded the ends of a rectangle of brass. I textured both of them with a hammer. The copper I cut and shaped and then decided to try embossing it. I love embossing paper, and recently Vintaj has put embossing folders and a machine on the market. If you have a die cut machine you don't need the one Vintaj sells, any of them will work. I had gotten one of their embossing folders and so I decided this was the time to use it. Well, I love the way it turned out. I lightly oxidized all the metal but I love the way the embossed piece looks. I followed Mary's directions for putting the pendant together and I love the results. Here you can see the embossed copper better.
These pendants are really fun to make. Anything goes so you can use any scraps on your work table. Putting the spacer beads between the sheet metal pieces allows them to move and spin. I think it's so much fun! It's become one of my favorite necklaces!!
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend!
