Stitched Devil Mosaic Necklace Tutorial
Created by: Sondra Barrington
- Prearrange your design by tracing the bezel, and creating a mock-up arrangement on paper.
- Place items in bezel and set them in place with a dab of two-part epoxy glue. Let dry fully (24 hours) before applying concrete.
- Mix the concrete from the EnCapture Artisan Concrete™ kit following the manufacturer's recommendations.
- For more information on creating mosaic jewelry, check out the Rings & Things EnCapture Artisan Concrete Blog post.
- Apply the concrete mix to the bezel to embed the mosaic's pieces.
- Remove excess concrete from your embedded treasures as you work using a damp paper towel, cotton swab or toothpick.Continued Below...

- If you do not like large grains of sand from the concrete being visible in your design, you may be able to bury them by gently poking them down into the wet concrete with a toothpick.
- When you are done creating, rinse the syringe and allow it to air dry for future use.
- Once concrete has cured, gently clean around embedded treasures with the straight carver.
- This pendant works best as a necklace, as the devil head and horns extend beyond the bezel and are a snagging hazard for a bracelet.
