DRAGONFLY PENDANT



I made this necklace as a thank you gift for a friend. I melted clear and gold UTEE in the melting pot and then added flex. When the flex was melted I stirred the pot and sprinkled on some black UTEE. Poured the UTEE into the dragonfly mold that my friend had made and given me. Popped the hardened piece out of the mold and applied green Rub n Buff to the dragonfly. Sealed the piece with Diamond Glaze. Glued it to an round antique gold metal piece with E6000 glue. Made a dangle with a green fire polished bead and head pin and attached to the bottom of the piece and a jumpring to the top. Picked out the beads I wanted to use and strung the necklace. Cut a piece of chain 2 inches shorter than my finished necklace and attached it directly to the 2 pieces of the toggle clasp. Made three sets of dangles and attached them to the chain. Made earrings to match.
