This is my third and final sample featuring bezels from the Nunn Design Fall Inspirations catalogue.
Of course, I saved the best for last.
Well, the best for me, because I love Napoleon imagery and now I have a wonderful pendant to wear featuring my favorite couple.
I liked all the components in the new release...but as a resin artist I was most attracted to the new bezels. Each of my posts features a pendant made up of two different bezels.
These were the pendants in progress. Even with my sealer covering the images they still looked great. I sealed my paper images three times and let everything dry overnight. Aleene's Matte decoupage is much lighter than what I normally use and it is sealing paper beautifully.
After adding my rhinestone edge I poured in the first of two layers of Envirotex Lite. You can see here that I did not pour resin to the brim. This gave me the opportunity to write on the first resin service with gel market. Then I poured my final doming layer of Envirotex Lite.
I glued a bail to the back of the main pendant.
Napoleon and Josephine! You can just barely see my extra gold gel lines around Napoleon's shape. I loved the pendant, but I still had two bees which are Napoleon's symbol. They were attached last.
I also made the kumihimo braid myself with these unique fibers.
My necklace is a choker now, it looks just great when I wear it with an open shirt.
