I found a bamboo placemat while out and about one day. 
This is the first bead I made using one of the gazillion tiles on that placemat.  lol

I coated the image with gel matte medium, let it dry and soaked it in water the I slowly and carefully rubbed the paper off from the back.  I let it dry and used gel medium to adhere it to the tile.



This is the finished product.  I wanted to go simple and let the image be what stands out.  Not sure I accomplished it but it was fun trying this.

I agree!  It's lovely and romantic w/o being particularly ornate.  I'm inspired to try something similar for a girlfriend's holiday present.  Thanks for sharing!  [bookmarked]

Instead of a shell, I would have attached a red or purple tassle to the dangle of the tile, keeping with the theme. (just personal preference)

But what you have created is still very gorgeous!

I bought one of those placemats and some decal paper a few years ago after seeing something similar on HGTV.  I need to dig it out and make some necklaces.  Thanks for the inspiration.
