My first shot at domino pendants.
Made with "amazing glaze" (again, yes, corny) on the flat backs of dominos.
So much faster/less smelly/less messy/less bubbly than epoxy resin... I think I might be a convert.

I LOVE THE NURSE STAMP! She's sanitizing a spoon over a candle flame? 4 cents? Amazing. I got something off ebay once (a 70s pin with a holographic finish that says "may the force be with you," if you must know) and it arrived in a manilla envelope COVERED in these 4 cent stickers (and one celebrating Australia's bicentennial in 1988). The "media" stamp is also from that envelope. The rest are from wrapping paper or stationary.

Haven't put bails on them yet- will probably drill the tops and glue in sterling wire loops, when I have the chance to pull out the rotary tool.

ETA: Amazing glaze is this powdery stuff that you put in the oven for 5 or so minutes and it melts into a clear resin-like coat.

There's a tutorial here:

Ooh! These are all so cute! I especially like the one with the chick like birds. The only question I have is; when you actually wear one on a necklace is it bulky? Or is it really not that noticeable. Or do you prefer them on keychains? I can see a lot of potential for these after they get bails on them.

Thank you Smiley

You know, I've never actually worn one (yet).  That same thought though is why I stopped at 6 last night instead of making a billion. I've just seen them on here and since so many people make them I guessed that they were wearable- I guess I'll find out soon though!

Keychains might work, I'd be a little worried about them getting scratched up on the keys though.

I love the nursing pendant. My partner is a nurse, as is her mother and father and I am always looking for new ideas for her staff. Thank you for a neat craft.

Those are all really beautiful!  I really like the one with the stamp.  That was a good idea, and smart of you to keep it.  The flowers are so neatly done they almost look like they've been painted on.  Again, they are really beautiful.
