Today is my day to share inspiration with you!
I started by using the bezel die to die cut an oval from copper foil. I then embossed the foil oval using the Fern Fronds DecoEmboss die. I added several colors of patina to the debossed areas of the image impression, and waited for the patina colors to dry.
Once dry, I used a fine sand paper to brighten up the raised areas of the embossed design, to really bring out the copper color of the foil. I adhered the foil to the decorative pendant and sealed the entire surface of the foil with Glaze.
I found some antiqued copper colored charms and beads in my stash and created some complimentary accent pieces for my pendant. I attached them all to a leather cord using similarly colored jump rings.
I had so much fun creating this necklace. Such a nice change of pace from my usual every-day crafting!
Now, use the following list to check out the daily inspiration - make special note of the scheduled post date for each one!
