My accidental purchase of a collage sheet of artsy hearts lead to discovering a new jewelry product I am really excited about making. ArtEmboss is a cool metal “foil” I purchase from Dick Blick Art Supplies. I buy the medium weight which is easy to cut and is fun to emboss with a pencil. The ArtEmboss is the perfect weight to be the backing for some fun heart pendants.
I purchased the sheet of hearts from Etsy.
Step One: Use a good glue stick like Elmer’s MORE… that sticks to metal and attach to medium weight ArtEmboss Copper.
Step Two: Cut out the heart and apply a layer of Diamond Glaze making sure there are no air bubbles. (I don’t make the layer of Diamond Glaze super thick, just a nice even layer I smooth across the surface with my fingers.)
Step Three: After the diamond glaze is completely dry (not tacky) punch tiny holes for jewelry findings and use a pencil to emboss the back.
These heart pendants went together so FAST! They are so fun and colorful and I can hardly wait to see how fast they sell : )
After I made my first necklace/earring set I got inspired to dream up a hangtag to sell a set. I love serendipity….I accidently ordered the sheet of hearts and stumbled on a fun and easy way to make some artsy necklaces.
