Don't fear the reaper... join the Congregation!
I always wanted to do something with the Blue Öyster Cult logo! I also love to pick sea shells on the beach (I must admit I never use them)... so I had an idea! Put them together!

  • How to make a shell necklace. Blue Öyster Cult Pendant - Step 1
    Step 1

    Pick some shells on the beach. The bigger the better!

    Step 2

    Pick one and paint it blue. I used nail polish because it's a little transparent and you can still see the shell's natural drawings.

    Step 3

    Take sharpie (one for marking CDs) and write down the letters. I copied the typography, so you must google Blue Oyster Cult and you'll find the pattern! Finally I drew the symbol. I drew it directly on the shell without patterns or schemes.

    I varnished it with Mod Podge. DO NOT USE transparent nail polish cause the letters will melt! Probably other varnishes will work too.

    Once it's dried, make a hole with a gimlet. Be patient and do not force it because you can break it. It takes a while...

    Insert a piece of wire and make a loop on the top to hang the pendant.

    Step 7

    Fill the shell with hot glue. Make sure the wire is covered by the glue to avoid losing it. Let it dry.

    Paint the glue with something. I used black nail polish cause the blue one was not dark enough.

    Finally, add a ring and put a leather cord through it.

    Welcome to the Blue Öyster Cult!

    To set yourself in the right mood, listen The Congregation by Alice Cooper... :p (not the best song in the world but quite funny)

    Yes! I finally made something with a shell!
