Green Earth Glazed Pendant

About this design:

I wanted to play around with alcohol inks and metal washers and came up with this stunner. I added accent beads and a cotton cord but in others I've done, I've used leather cording which I think is much nicer.


metal washer, alcohol inks, dimensional accents (glaze), cotton cord, head pins, coordinating beads

    Really! This is just a plain old washer with inks and then glaze? SOUNDS so simplistic. LOOKS fabulous!!! When I get courageous, I’m going to try this.

    You haven’t seen the washer pendants Julie. Oh oh just goggle it and bunches of ideas come up. Some covered in paper, some painted or inked, some just stamped or etched. Its amazing how cool a washer can look.

    This is so pretty…when I first saw it I thought it was a glass dichroic donut. Great job.
