A great way to use up some left over gems to make creative jewellery with a personal touch. Match your outfit or just play around and see what you come up with. This is a great craft to keep you interested in using up what you have around the house.
You will need
Gems or beads
Lace or ribbon
Cover your working surface with wax paper.
Start with a bobby pin, this will become the loop attached to your pendant to attach to your ribbon or lace. Be very generous with your Mod Podge and glue your bobby pin to one or two large gems. Be sure to leave the hook part of the bobby pin sticking out of the pendant. At this point you are working on the back of your pendant. Allow this to dry.
Flip it over right side up on the wax paper and continue to add gems and Mod Podge until you have the pendant you desire. Allow this to dry.
Flip this back over and apply a generous coat of Mod Podge to the back of the pendant adding extra security to the bobby pin and the back of the gems. Allow this to completely dry.
Add your ribbon or lace using the hole at the end of the bobby pin and wear your new creations.
