Faux Dichro Silver Pendants

What fun these were.I used some left over bits of iridescent film onto the pendant bevels and then filled them with Franklin Opals.Then I lightly sanded them.Here they are together.

and closer

the rectangle one closer
and the heart closer...gee they shimmer and change colour in the light.


Tonight I am putting my new Jen Crossley skills to the test and I will make a vintage inspired broach.Grant got me a huge bag of old chandelier glass bits months ago and another friend of Grant's let me buy a small bag of broken old jewellery parts for a $1 from his Mum's 2nd hand shop last year.I knew I wanted to make "things" with them but till I did the etched metal class with Jen I had no idea what.I don't think my drilling and soldering will improve if I don't keep trying so..try I will :o)

Hi Gretz
Thanks...the pendants I bought about four years ago and had meant to make something with them for ages but forgot.They have matching ear rings to make too.You can get them from EZCraft (the makers)website in America but not sure how much they charge for postage.They are here

Over the rainbow polymer clay sells the basic kit here
http://www.polymerclay.com.au/faux-dichro-kits-c-371.html but not the necklaces.Really though you don't need a kit as it is just sea glass,iridescent film and fabrics and a layer of Plaid Royal coat dimensional magic.The pendants I did I used Fantasy Film and Angelina film scraps and Opals

Hey Annette,

These are gorgeous. I did a spate of faux dichro on tumbled glass maybe a year ago, very fun, easier than I thought, and pretty "wow" results. Great work!
