Having ready-made "blanks" on hand makes creating a snap. I created my blanks from this wonderfully versatile air-dry polymer clay from Activa
(This is a great sticky-free clay.)
I liked the idea of a domino shaped pendant that was lightweight. I used my "pokey-tool" to push a hole through the domino shape.
(Ignore the messy surface, it will all be covered.)
Next step is to choose the perfect Vintage Christmas image.
(Trace around your shape for the image to cut out.)
Gel medium works well to adhere your image to the blank.
(This mini set of mediums is a great way to sample a product or include in an artistic gift set.)
When the gel dries, use a metallic marker over the back and sides.
Glaze covers the image, glitter is added to the corners and more glaze is added to keep the glitter flakes together. Scrap wire was fashioned into a haphazard bail and a length of satin cord completed the necklace.
(Gift-giving in a snap.)
Activa Modena Soft has found a welcome spot on my craft table.
