Nature's color palette makes this necklace, which features a turquoise and orange bird, a true delight. We used one of our favorite nature-themed craft sheets for the backgrounds in these vintage frames, but feel free to use any image you deem appropriate.
Note: When using the ICE Resin®, each time you mix you will have enough for multiple pieces of jewelry, so you might want to have other pieces ready so as not to not waste the mix. For help with Ice Resin, visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
Step One: Cut the bird image from the nature collage paper to fit the antique gold-plated pewter grande rectangle pendant, and cut the nest image to fit the antique gold-plated pewter mini circle link. Coat the images in Mod Podge to prevent bleeding. Let dry completely. Repeat.
Step Two: Apply a coating of Mod Podge to the inside of both frames. Position the background cutouts and gently press them into their respective frames, making sure they are smooth and without bubbles. Apply another coat of Mod Podge to the cut outs in the frames. Let dry completely.
Step Three: Mix together the ICE Resin as indicated on the instructions. Pour the resin slowly into the frames or use a mixing stick to drizzle the resin into the frames. Because of the thickness of the resin, it tends to mound as you pour and then it settles, making it easy to overfill the frames. Let dry overnight. Please note that the ICE Resin often takes several days to fully harden, so take care not to make indentations in the surface of your pendant.
Step Four: Connect the two frames using a 4mm antique brass-plated pewter open jump ring. For help with jump rings visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Attach a 6mm antique brass-plated pewter open jump ring to the top loop on the circle link. Thread the turquoise silk ribbon through the jump ring and tie at your desired length.
