Blog Pendant Necklace

With the Creative Estates blogging conference just a few short weeks away, I am in the full swing of final preparations.  My family has decided to make a week-long vacation out of it, and I couldn't be any more thrilled to get out of town!  I have been making travel arrangements, ordering business cards, and even lining up several awesome guest bloggers to take care of things while I'm away!
This little blog pendant necklace will be traveling with me to Creative Estates.  I will be wearing my Oopsey Daisy logo with pride!!
I am not one who can easily sit down and make a craft in a short period of time... I usually stumble around and do things the hard way.  So you can believe me when I say that this craft was simple and didn't take much time at all!
For this project, you will need:
* A glass pendant.  (I purchased these 7/8-inch square glass shapes from
* Scrabble tile/glass glaze.  (I also purchased mine from Sun and Moon Craft Kits, but there are many comparable products you can find at just about any craft store!)
* A jewelry chain.  (I actually used an old chain I had at home.)
* A jewelry bail.
* A print-out of your desired logo or picture that will fit your glass pendant.
I wanted to be sure that I would get the size just right, so I printed out several Oopsey Daisy logos just to be sure I would have the right fit.  You could also print this out at Kinko's or even Costco!

 

After trimming the logo to size, I completely covered the paper with the glaze. I just used my fingers to spread it, covering every edge.  Once covered, I place the glass tile right over the top.

Then I turned my pendant over, and applied the glaze to the back of the paper, too.  I completely covered the back of the pendant and let it dry.

Finally, I used E-6000 to glue a bail on the top of the pendant, and let it dry over night.  I strung it on an old jewelry chain, and that's it!

See--was that simple or what?!  I can't wait to wear my new blog pendant necklace!!

 

Now the only dilemma I have left is selecting my outfits for the conference!
I am so indecisive when it comes to clothes.. black shirt or white?!  (I think I'll go with the white!)
I have some more ideas for pendant necklaces, which I'll share in a few days.
Have a great day!
