My Heart's in Paris Necklace

Hello everyone!! Kymona here for the first time as a design team member and I'm over the top excited to be here!! When I was asked to join the Craft Fantastic team I couldn't stop smiling.  I love creating new pieces of jewelry!

Today I'm going to share with how to create this heart necklace that I created for my sister!

Take a look:


My sister is going to love this necklace.  I can't wait to give it to her.  She has a love affair with Paris. When she had her first daughter, she made a promise to bring her to Paris when she gets older.  The time is drawing near so I figured this necklace is so perfect for her. 

Here is how I created this necklace:

1. I picked out the image that I wanted to appear in the necklace from Craft Fantastic Paris Image 
sheet

2.  Then I picked out the Antique Brass Medium Heart Pendant and the Medium Glass Heart  but later changed my mind and switch to the Silver Medium Heart Pendant.  The image looked so much better in the silver vs the antique.  



3.  Next, I added Fantastic Glaze & Glue 2 to the glass heart.  I added about 7 to 8 drops.


4. Then I placed the heart on top of the image making sure the glass covered parts of the image I wanted to see. I press down hard so that the glue moves and cover the entire image underneath.

5. I waited for about 2-3 minutes to make sure the glue set.  I used my finger to push the glass a bit.  If it does not move, then it's set.  

6. Once the glue set, I used a Q-tip to remove the excess glue around the edges.


7. Before placing the glass heart in the tray, I added one Fantastic Jeweler's Dot in the center of the try. You can see it in the picture above. Once the dot is in place, remove the red backing.

8.  Place the heart directly in the try and press down.  The tape is strong and will hold the glass.

9.  After that I strung the 24" Silver Ball Chain  through the heart pendent.  

10. To finish the necklace off, I added a Silver Cute Heart Charm. To do that I add a Silver Pinch Bail to the heart charm so that I could add it to the ball chain. 

Nice and pretty simple.  Once you create one the possibilities are endless!!
