I never pass an opportunity to pick through the clearance bins at the craft store. I found this wooden pendant for 25 cents. I wasn’t sure how to embellish it. My daughter said steam punk but I didn’t see it. I kept coming back to it and finally something clicked.
For this project I used:
1 wooden pendant
34ss white flat back pearls
10ss white flat back pearls
Wax tipped tool
I began with gluing the 10ss pearls around the center hole. I placed a drop of glue about the size of the pearl on the pendant and placed a pearl in the glue drop, gently pressing down.
Continue gluing around the center hole.
Next, I glued the 34ss.
Breathtakingly simple, flat back pearls add a touch of elegance that will accessorize any outfit and the best part, no one will have seen anything like it before.

I have been adding bling for over 20 years. Through my projects, I hope you find inspiration.
