  • Step 1

    Find a picture of a geisha online- print it out, and cut it out to the size of a Scrabble tile. Laminate it with tape, and cut the tape to size of the picture. Glue it to a scrabble tile, letting it dry overnight.

  • Step 2

    Paint the wood edges of the pendant with orange nail polish. Glue a bail to the back, or make a bail out of wire and glue it to the back of the pendant. Let it dry again.

    Step 3

    Take cotton cord and either braid or twist it together. Add the pendant to the middle. Add ribbon clamps to the end of the cord and glue in place. Add a clasp (string a few crystals on a headpin, loop, and add to clasp, and laminate a small tag of chinese writing with tape, poke a hole, and add a jumpring). You're done!
