I made this for my sister,the cameo is made out of resin, and the necklace is black beads, theres 3 strands braided together!



I would love to hear comments and even suggestion, I had a little trouble with the way the pendant was wanting to lay it keep flipping over on me. It was rather frustrating!!

Wow!  I love this!  What did you use to make the pendant?  It's really amazing looking.  I love how you did the colors too.

looks good. did you use a mold?

regarding how it's lying when worn--it looks like the pendant has one jump ring inserted from front to back, and then another through that to attach it to the necklace.  if you only used one connection/ring for the whole shebang (you could sew it too in this instance), that should solve the problem.

The pendant is made out of resin, I used my gramdmas cameos and amazing mold putty to make a flexable mold. Thank you!!!

That's really neat that you made your own mold out from an actual cameo.  That is so neat!

that's impressive that you made your own cameo! i know, cameo do love to flip over. you could try connecting it with two jump rings, each one spaced a little bit apart on the necklace. it's a little hard to describe, but the jump rings would end up looking like a V. i think that would stabilize the cameo and keep it from flipping all the time.
