Mixed Media Jewelry is becoming more and more trendy. The idea of mixing various components together using different techniques is fun and liberating since the old "rules" of creating jewelry go out of the window. When I ran into this mixed media pendant on the popular social networking site Pinterest, I knew I had to take a stab at creating my own.
I recently purchased these adorable wood finches from an etsy seller. I decided to pair it with a few more unfinished wood pieces.
Next, mix a little Pearl Ex Varnish with pearl ex in Pewter until you have a slightly creamy consistency.
Dry brush the Pearl Ex across the surface of the wood pieces with a paintbrush.
Once the pieces are dry, you can begin to assemble the pieces using a strong tacky glue, such as Aleenes Liquid Fusion.
Attach some rhinestone chain to the edges of the wood circle, using wire nips to cut the chain as needed for the appropriate length. Place a thin line of liquid fusion to the edge of the circle and glue the pieces on.
