11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Glass Tile Pendant Necklace - Grunge Lace on: November 24, 2013 01:53:56 PM

This flowered pendant is made from an altered glass tile from the home improvement store. The tile is embellished with a scrap of lace flowers that I have been painted dark gray. The lace gives the pendant a raised texture. The tile measures 1 7/8 x 1/2 inches. A shiny silver colored metal nut is attached as a bail. I used glossy accents as my glue. First attaching the nut and letting the glue dry overnight. The next day I added more glossy accents around the base of the nut to reinforce the hold.

You could use this technique for any little bits of lace or embroidery that you have. Imagine the possibilities!
12  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Edgar Allan Poe Bookmark/Plant Stick on: November 13, 2013 01:16:40 PM


I created this Edgar Allan Poe bookmark/plant stick from an altered domino and large craft stick. I colored the domino with alcohol ink and then used permanent black ink to stamp on Edgar's face. The stamps used for this piece are:

wings + face - Smeared Ink Quoth the Raven set
             crown - Tim Holtz
 
The crown and wings were stamped on to design paper. They were laminated to add stability.  The piece is embellished with three golden rhinestones and a scrap of eyelash trim.

I sealed the alcohol inks with a water based matte varnish. I apply varnish with a cosmetic sponge wedge so that I don't get brush marks. Dab on first coat so you don't spread the ink. Let that dry and then apply a heavier coat. Hope that answers your question!
18  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Grungy Lace Altered Glass Tile Pendant on: September 25, 2013 01:06:32 PM


This grungy lace pendant is made from an altered glass tile from the home improvement store. The tile has been altered with acrylic paint and a scrap of lace. The tile was painted off white and the scrap of lace was painted grey/gray. I attached the lace to the pendant with Glossy Accents. Once the GA was dry, I drybrushed the red accents onto the tile. The tile was then sealed with water based varnish.

The tile measures 1 7/8 x 1/2 inches and has a well weathered silver colored metal nut attached as a bail. I used Ranger Glossy Accents for my glue. I attached the nut and let it dry overnight. Then I used the GA all around the base of the nut again to really reinforce the bond.

The pendant is strung on 20 inches of chain with a barrel clasp. To use up some of my smaller pieces of chain, I joined the pieces with an enameled square. The pendant has a tattered and rustic vibe to it. I hope you will make one for yourself.




19  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Altered Glass Tile Pendant Necklace - Funky Foliage on: September 21, 2013 08:18:43 AM


This unique pendant is made from an altered glass tile from the home improvement store. The pendant is embellished with a raised foliage pattern. The funky fern is die cut from fun foam. Really...who knew? I painted the front and back of the tile with orange acrylic paint. I painted the fern brown and attached it to the tile with Glossy Accents. I then did some color washes and dry brushing to achieve the distressed and weathered final look. The piece is sealed with water based varnish.

The tile measures 1 7/8 x 1/2 inches. A rusty silver colored metal nut rescued from my husband's hardware discards is attached as a bail. I used Glossy Accents to glue the nut on and let it dry overnight. Then I used the Glossy Accents all around the base of the nut again to really reinforce the bond.

The pendant is tied on a 24" steel colored ball chain with a scrap of off white leather. The necklace has an organic earthy vibe.

This ink dyed pendant is made from an altered glass tile from the home improvement store. The tile was dyed with Ranger alcohol inks in various colors. I used my finger to spread on a base color and then I dripped the other colors on top and let them spread and mix until I got this colorful pattern.  I added two steampunk gears and cogs to give it a steampunk vibe. The tile measures 1 7/8 x 1/2 inches and has a silver colored metal nut attached as a bail. I used glossy accents as my glue. The pendant is strung on a 24" steel colored ball chain.
