Halloween "Believe" Pendant & Earrings

T.G.I.F. (Thank Goodness It's Fun day!)

The holiday season is coming up fast...before you know it Halloween will be here and we will be working our way through to Christmas and New Year's! 

Today I have a FUN jewelry set using a package of Piccolo Accents and a few Embossing Enamel Powders.

To make the earrings and pendant, you will need a few items from the G&P shop:
enamel Powder Adhesive Fluid
3D Enamel Gel: Mars Black
Glastique, Gloss

scrap of paper, copy/patterned/plain - your choice

The key to this project is to be patient when building the layers. You don't want finger prints or peaks in your melted enamels!

Begin by covering the peacock feathers with the Starry Sky. When cool, use a small paintbrush to to coat just the 'eye' portion of the feather. Using a small scoop (slushee straws work great for this!) add the Royal Sterling just to the middle. When cool, attach earring hoops and rings to connect the feathers.

The pendant was made by building several layers of Starry Sky (I did 3 layers.) Now add the Royal Sterling randomly, covering a majority of the circle. Don't worry if the Royal Sterling seems too solid after it melts. Just stick with me! Do NOT clip off the hanging circle, yet. It comes in handy as a handle when you are melting the powders and adding things. Clip it AFTER you are finished with the enamel powders. You're welcome.

When you add the Ultra Thick Clear, the magic will start to move the other colors around as you heat the powders. Keep repeating the layers until you are happy with the results.

When you are finished, write (or stamp) the sentiment on sticker paper, scrap of patterned paper, copy paper...whatever you prefer. Heat up the pendant and when it's warm, use the side of the tip of the tweezers to very gently push the sentiment into the melted enamel.  I LOVE how the paper turned transulcent.

Just for fun I used the Mars Black on the tiny bat (click on the picture for a better look!)
