A New Piece of Jewelry made with Sakura Crystal Lacquer

 

Hello there everyone! I wanted to share a necklace that I made using a blank bezel, some ephemera and Sakura Crystal Lacquer. I started out with the following:

Once I had picked all of the pieces that I wanted to put together, I first used a bit of the Crystal Lacquer to hold my bottom piece down and then used the Crystal Lacquer to add all the other components of the necklace to the bezel. Once everything was attached, I filled the bezel up the rest of the way with Crystal Lacquer and I love how it looks!

The Crystal Lacquer dries clear and you don’t have to worry about a lot of bubbles and if you get one it’s very easily gotten rid of. I think this one is going to be a gift for a granddaughter. Of course I’ll have to make several more, so that no one gets jealous!lol

Hello
So beautiful. You are a clever woman to make more as yes, otherwise you would have many jealous people to deal with!

This was a great tutorial, Barbara. It is nice to see what others do with these blanks. My granddaughter and her friend will be here on Mon and Tuesday...so this might be something fun to try!
