Repurposed Vintage Jewelry with Photo Pendant
By: Williams Kim
Category: Fashion Crafting
Products Used:  
Mod Podge
Mod Podge Dimentional
The necklace I created was made with 95% vintage jewelry. For the bezel, which holds my great grandmother's photo, I used a vintage belt buckle. I used clear packaging tape to seal up the back of the belt buckle. Then I poured Mod Podge Dimensional in layers until I filled up the buckle. Once I had a good solid base built up, I scanned my photo and sized the picture to fit the bezel. I used packaging tape applied to both sides of the photo. I did this to keep the Mod Podge Dimensional product from saturating my photo. I used Mod Podge glue to place the sealed photo in the bezel. While my bezel set up, I used vintage finding and beads to create the chain that I added to the bezel. I wired a new closure to the chain to insure my necklace would be secure.
