Faux enamel pendant – Pendentif en simili émail

Inspired by this Faux Enamel Necklace, I decided to try making my own. I didn’t have the flat discs that Alicia used but I did have a plain washer sitting on my table. Hmm, why not? I cleaned the surface (I had picked up the washer from the street), applied two coats of nail polish, a coat of clear nail polish, letting everything dry properly in between. I picked some contrasting flat gemstones and glued them to the surface with E6000 glue and also glue a piece of wire to the back for hanging purposes. I let everything dry for 24 hours and voilà! A beautiful pendant which will be listed in my store soon.

 Inspirée par ce Collier Simili Email, j’ai décidé d’essayer de m’en faire un. Je n’avais pas de petits disques plats comme Alicia a pris mais j’avais une rondelle de quincaillerie sur ma table. Hmm, pourquoi pas? J’ai nettoyé la surface (la rondelle a été ramassée dans la rue), j’ai appliqué deux couches de vernis à ongle, une couche de vernis transparent en laissant le tout bien sécher entre chaque étape. J’ai choisi des pierres plates de couleur contrastante et les ai collées sur la surface avec de la colle E6000 ainsi qu’un morceau de fil de fer pour pouvoir suspendre le pendentif. J’ai tout laissé sécher pendant 24 heures et voilà! Un beau pendentif qui se retrouvera bientôt dans ma boutique.

Don’t forget my giveaway which ends Friday!

N’oubliez pas mon tirage qui se termine Vendredi!
