  • How to make a pendant necklace. Fishy Domino Pendant/Earring Set - Step 1
    Step 1

    The players...Dominoes in two sizes. Super Glue. Alcohol ink. I used Adirondack in Cloudy Blue and Sail Boat Blue. Mod Podge Dimensional magic (because it was within reach), but you could use Glossy Accents or Diamond Glaze. Round nose pliers and wire cutter, Jewelry wire, earring findings of your choice, fish manicure stickers, micro beads, metallic paint pen in silver (or gold) and tiny shells.

    Color the smooth side of your dominoes with the alcohol ink. You can make the colors as intense as you like. I kept it light so it has a water color feeling to it.

    Pick out the fish you would like on your dominoes. I made sure I picked out enough of the same ones so they would be mirror image on the earrings.

    Once the sealer coat is dry add some micro beads to the corners. Use the sealer as a glue. Micro beads are TINY little glass beads with no holes. I love them.
