I picked this round pendant up for 25 cents on clearance. It has some interesting texture to it, but nothing that really grabs your attention. With some glue and rhinestones, this will become something spectacular!
For this project I used:
1 round pendant
Wax tipped tool
4 – 30ss Black Diamond Rhinestones
4- 20ss Comet Argent Light (silver) Rhinestones
16 – 12ss Crystal Rhinestones
So believe it or not, this was my first attempt at using the adhesive E6000. I have tended to stay away from using it because you cannot get the same control out of the tube that you can with Gem Tac. Since most of my experience has been with fabrics, Gem Tac has always been my choice of adhesives. For this project, I am gluing to metal and E6000 it better at adhering than Gem Tac. I used a toothpick to help spread the glue and it was easier than I anticipated. Squeezing just a slightly at the bottom of the tube, I applied a drop of glue about the size of the rhinestone on the pendant. I place the Black Diamond rhinestones at the 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions.
Next I applied the Comet Argent Light 20ss rhinestones halfway between the Black Diamond.
Finally, I added 2 crystal 12ss rhinestones, side by side between the Black Diamond and the Comet Argent Light Rhinestones.
Gorgeous! Now you have something completely different than what you started with. This pendant is sure to get you noticed!
