Do What You Love Necklace
By Gail Booth
Designer Tip: Back the reverse side of your charm with paper too, and sand the edges for a nice border effect.
- Cut out the "Do What You Love" Easy Peasy artwork and the "Always..." bird Easy Peasy artwork and glue back to back. Place the 1.79"x1.64" acrylic charm over the "Do What You Love" side and trace around the outside edges, and the inside hole. Remove the charm, cut out along traced lines and a punch hole on the traced hole area. Sand edges on both sides.
- Remove the protective backing from both sides of the charm. Place the "Do What You Love" side up on craft paper and cover the image with an even layer of crystal lacquer. Place charm on top of the lacquered image and wiggle slightly to disburse any air bubbles. Allow the lacquer to ooze out of the sides and let it dry without disturbing.
- Turn your charm over, apply an even layer of lacquer to the back and let dry.
- Use the sanding block to remove any excess dried lacquer from the edges of the charm if necessary, and poke through the hole with a pencil or skewer to remove any lacquer from the opening. Add a jump ring and chain.
