Buff with the Metal Reliefing block to highlight the raised designs. Punch or drill an additional hole at the bottom of one of the embossed blanks and link together as shown in the image. Attach the linked embossed blanks to a large jump ring to form a dangling pendant. Create the lower portion of the necklace by linking a variety of beads, a Swirl Drop and jump rings onto chain. Attach one side of the necklace to the large jump ring above the pendant. Attach an Engraved Creative Bar to the opposite strand to function as a toggle clasp with the large jump ring. For added interest, dangle beads from some of the larger jump rings on the chain. If desired, Vintaj Glaze can be used as a sealer for natural metals to prevent oxidation. It is fast-drying, durable and permanent with a satin finish.
