Poppy Field Pendant Necklace Tutorial
Created by: Mollie Valente
Select and clean two matching glass pieces.
Select an image and cut it to match the glass shape and size.
Carefully wrap the glass with copper-foil tape. To create a tight seal, burnish the foil to the glass (a Sharpie pen handle makes a great burnishing tool).
To form hanging loops attach the crimp ends to opposite sides of the pendant's top. Jump rings can also be substituted.
Flux the copper foil, apply a thin layer of soft solder over the entire copper surface (tinning), and add a thicker layer of solder one side at a time. If you are using jump rings for hanging loops, add them now. Allow to cool.
Use rubbing alcohol to clean the pendant and remove any excess flux.
Use jump rings to attach the chain to the pendant loops; adjust your chain length to preference; use jump rings to attach the toggle clasp.
Wire wrap six dangles (crystals and Czech beads). Use jump rings to attach three dangles to either side of the pendant.
