I can't see it that well. But I would go to the craft store and buy wooden shapes. Drill holes to hang them from the chain. Paste of the photo, clear coat it. Add the chain.

Just a guess.  Grin

hello color!

I can't see it either. What site is it, so we can see it better?

Well, the colorful chain looks shiny like metal, so it's probably anodized aluminum. I can't see the charms very well, but they might be acrylic. Wooden hearts, if that's something that's easy to find, would be ideal, - or if you can't find a shape like the one that you want, you can always make it from polymer clay (and then glue on the printed out image). Then use glossy sealant to make it shiny and waterproof. For even more shine, wet sand and buff. Good luck!

Another option would be the ever-popular shinky dink pendant. You could photoshop the image and bake it and adhere it to either a clay or wooden piece. You can also look on ebay i believe you can find acrylic flat shapes as well. If you go with the acrylic you can make holes by heating up a sewing needle or safety pin (i assume not everyone owns a dremel) then embelish away!

I think the shrinky dinks are the way to go, too Smiley
Good luck!

I would try polymer clay for the base. They'll look more 3D-esque and have quite a bit more weight to them.

I love them. Good luck making your own version.

I just saw a huge, fairly close up photo of one of these necklaces on ebay. It looks like the charms are made of wood and the images are decoupaged. I think the hearts are at least 1/4" thick. A gloss varnish or clear coat will make them shiny so that they look more finished.

Hope that helps.

those necklaces are lovely. i've been eye'ing them for awhile in figuring out how to make my own versions with my own set of themes. i've already got the stuff like polymer clay and decorative things for my pendant. i'm still waiting for the clay cutter to arrive Smiley

although i do have the chains, i've been to two of the main hobby shops in my area (Michael's and Pearl) and they don't even carry colored anodized aluminum chains. i'd prefer buying them at a store than ordering more online. so does anyone know where colored anodized aluminum chains are common?
