Designer Tips

  • Stamp front piece first (I used the "l" to make diagonal lines on the window frame). Flatten. Patina with Win-Ox™ and clean with steel wool.
  • Clean back piece with rubbing alcohol. Decoupage or seal an image onto the back piece – allow to dry.
  • Punch holes in the top piece only with the hole punch side of the rivet tool.
  • Place over the back piece and mark hole location at top only. Attach a rivet bail with a 5/32" long (1/16" diameter) rivet.
  • Then punch a second hole in bottom piece and rivet together with a 3/32" long (1/16" diameter) rivet.
  • String 2 heishi + 1 brass + 2 heishi in the center to make the pendant lay correctly.
  • The finished length is 17".
