Oh my goodness, I have been having so much fun making custom jewelry for my friends, family and (of course) myself! I purchased all of the products from Craft Fantastic 3 or 4 years ago, and I am so happy with the results that I am kicking myself for not creating these sooner.
I selected a bunch of photos of my dogs and my friends and family’s dogs, but the personalization and customization options are endless. You could use monograms, family portraits, or even luxury brand logos. These could be wonderful and cherished unique gifts for new parents, anniversaries, birthdays, and Christmas!
First you need to resize the photos to about 0.75″ to 1″ to2″, depending on the size you want of the charm, pendant, earrings, etcetera. Then put all the pictures on a word document that you can get printed on a laser printer. I had mine printed at FedEx ( ~$0.53 per page) because my home printer does not put out great quality and I was afraid that the ink I use at home would smear under the glaze.
Then with the Craft Fantastic Glaze and Glue and a bunch of jewelry trays and glass toppers, I made a BUNCH of pendants, charms, earrings, and bracelets. Simply put a small dollop of glaze on top of a picture, position a glass topper over the picture, wipe away excess glaze that oozes out with a Q-tip, wait for glaze to dry (about 10 minutes), and trim around the photo/glass “jewel”.
Add a jewelry sticker to the metal or plastic tray and remove the release paper before adhering the custom “jewel”. These jewelry pieces can be further embellished with charms by the pendants or at the end of the chains for unique pizzazz!
