Let's recycle old materials!
Choose an image that you like and let's get started!

  • Step 1

    Print some copies of the image that you want to use (5x). Do this in normal printing paper and with the size you want your pendant to be.

  • Step 2

    Now, glue the images to something harder than paper: I used a box of cereals made of cardboard.

  • Step 3

    After drying, cut out the pictures as equal as possible (that's why I didn't use a mold), and glue them together, on top of each other.
    For this step I used white glue (I think this is its name in English) because it leaves less bubbles and is stronger than stick glue (which I used in step 2).

  • Step 4

    Let the pendant dry for some time

  • Step 5

    Paint the pendant with a colour of your choosing. I used a black nail polish so this way the pendant is already water proof.
    Repeat the process 5 times (let it dry in between).

  • Step 6

    With a needle, pierce the pendant so that you can attach it to the necklace.

  • Step 7

    For the necklace itself I used a piece of a chain I had and some organza, as well as a heart from an old and broken bracelet.
