My partner in the latest round of the bead soup swap, kimchery, loves The Muppet Show.  When thinking about what kind of crafted jewelry item I could do for her, I came up with this Muppet Show necklace.  The base for each image is poly clay and the images are secured with diamond glaze.  I drilled the holes after they were glued together (oooh... power tools!).  It was completed with basic jewelry skills.

I am also curious about how the images are applied to the poly....  Drawn, painted? Printed?  Decoupage?  Shrinky?  Looks awesome!

Thanks guys!  The images were printed.  Finding appropriate ones for this project was kind of hard.  There are a lot of images of the muppets but they're usually grouped really tightly together.  I baked off the clay then used diamond glaze to adhere them.
