In my Thrifty Tuesday post yesterday, I included a photo of some stones I found at a vintage store in Dallas. I couldn’t wait to do something with them, so I came up with a way to make them into pendants. You could do this with any stone you find.
- Glue (preferably clear glue–I used a hot glue gun and it turned out messy)
- 1 head pin
- 3 jump rings
- Lobster or other clasp
Making the pendant
- Wrap a scrap of chain around the top of your stone.
- Slip head pin through chain on the back and twist ends into a wrapped (or simple) loop at the top.
- Secure chain and loop with glue.
Attach pendant to chain and complete with the lobster clasp and jump rings. I also fastened a circular charm with my initial that I found in a vintage store. I only had hot glue, so the back of mine looks a little rough.
A clear glue like Gorilla Glue or Super Glue would probably work better. I used about 18″ of chain, so mine hangs about mid-chest. This pendant would also work on a 20-30″ chain.
