Fall is a time to crave things that are sumptuous, rich, and sometimes a little louche. That must explain why I'm suddenly hungry for leopard print (say what? me??) and saturated colors. Stone agate jewelry fits the bill perfectly, with its jewel tones and a look of natural opulence.
I went through my rock collection (of course I have a rock collection), and found an agate slice that was perfect to turn into pendant. This project was super fast (discounting drying time) and used just a few materials. I had everything on hand, so it was also a freebie!
Tools and Materials:
Next, I squeezed glue onto a plate, and used a tooth pick to apply glue to the edge of the stone, beginning at the bottom of the stone.
I pressed the chain into the glue, and continued to apply glue around the stone, and sticking on the chain.
Once I made it to the top with on one side, I began at the bottom again from the other side until the chain on both sides met.
Strands of glue wiped clean with a little nail polish remover and paper towel.
For a little extra security, I added a jump ring to connect the two sids of chain and tried really hard not to play with it and let it dry overnight.
