To say that I’ve had a rather stressful week would be an understatement. One week ago I had surgery on my back and of course the healing process is a painful one. I will say that I’m doing well and my teammates and especially our team leader, Terri Sproul have made the process much easier on me. Before I went in for my surgery I got ahead on my projects just a little. This project is for a wonderful pendant. To start with I used: A pendant made out of resin, Terri Sproul Tanzanite Shimmer and 3D Crystal Lacquer. To start with I mixed the Tanzinite Shimmer and 3D Crystal Lacquer and painted the resin pendant. Isn’t this color just amazingly beautiful? I then took wire and beads of different types and sorts and used the Crystal Lacquer to adhere it to the pendant. I used a simple cord for the necklace part and I absolutely love the way that it turned out!.
What do you think of my necklace? I would love to hear your comments.

You need a mask to trace or a mask pattern, 3d Crstal Lacquer, Terri Sproul mixers- assortment of colors andfine glitter, a plastic sheet protector, paint brush, lace, scissors, exacto knife and optional dimensional puff paint.
Trace mask on the plastic sheet protector with a sharpie.
Cut out the mask shape. Only cut one side of the protector, you will be able to make several masks from one.
Cut out the eye shape with an exacto.
This is your mask shape.
Lay you lace face up in the lacquer. Most lace has a raise side, this side will be away from the plastic facing up.
Using a hole puncher, punch a hole about even with the edge of the eye.
At this point, place it over your face and make any adjustments.
This is your lace mask.
Put a decent amount of 3D Crystal Lacquer on the mat and mix in your background color.
This lace pattern is of flowers so I decided to do my flowers in red and the background area in gold.
I tied a few poneytail holders to make an elastic strap.
I did not embellish any further but you can add feathers, jewelry, resin pieces (above you can see I had a fleur de lis ready to go but like this look so stopped) or anything else.
