A Steampunk Valentine Pendant


 Happy Wednesday everyone! leslierahye here with my very first post for Globecraft & Picolo. For my project today I made a pendant with the Skinny Rectangle Bezel by layering on Steampunk gears and Hearts, keys and embellishments! I love how it turned out! It's it complemented by the Silk Cord Necklace that can also be found in the online shop!

I began  by dabbing Enamel Powder Adhesive Fluid onto my bezel chipboard shape and embossing it with Mermaid Tears EP. I then did two layers of Vintage Copper on the gears and Copper Kettle on the key and swirl. The heart was coated with the 3D enamels in Dark Red and Pink Rose. The gears were then coated with the matte finish Glastique and the rest of the pieces were coated with the gloss finish Glastique. After they dried a generous coat of the gloss Glasstique was applied to the Bezel and to backs of embellishments to adhere the pendant together! The key was dangled from the heart with copper jump rings. The entire pendant was added to the Silk Cord Necklace by a copper jump ring as well.

Hi Leslierahye, I tried to leave a comment from my phone yesterday but didn't seem to get here. Anyway, I love the steampunk look and how you added the gears on the heart.
