Tropical Hideaway Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

If you dream of sneaking off to a tropical paradise, but can't afford the time, this is a quick and inexpensive way to take your bungalow with you wherever you may roam! We stamped these whimsical images onto our resin pendants using stamps from our "Wow" rubber stamp set. We used solvent ink created for rubber stamping and crafts that we purchased from our local craft store. With several colors of resin pendants and stamp sets to choose from the design possibilities are endless. Our stamp sets include six to twelve individual stamps so once you invest in a stamp set you can make unlimited numbers of necklaces for a fraction of the price.

Note: When the tube link clasps are attached, the necklace will measure an inch shorter than the cut length of the cord. Make sure this length will fit over your head before you purchase the cord.

Step one: Stamp an image onto the watermelon rectangular resin pendant. Allow to dry.

Step two: String the resin pendant onto the 24-inch, 2mm granny smith green rubber cord. Attach the sterling silver 2mm double tube link clasps. For help with the Tube Clasps please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center. We used Amazing Goop craft adhesive for this project following the manufacturer's instructions.

Step three: Use the BeJeweler® to affix an ss 10 light topaz hotfix rhinestone for a sparkle of sunshine. For help using the BeJeweler® please visit the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center
