Emboss a Perched Owl Vintaj Natural Brass Altered Metal blank using the Botanical Flourish DecoEtch die. Buff with the Metal Reliefing block to highlight the raised designs. Punch or drill an additional at the bottom of the etched blank. Dangle a Copper Teensie Nouveau Leaf charm from the bottom of the Owl. Attach the etched Owl along with a knotted silk cord, dangling beads and a Copper Pine Cone charm to a larger jump ring to form a pendant. Create a three-strand necklace by gathering two strands of strung beads and a silk cord; attach one end to a capped bead, a decorative bead and the pendant. Attach the other end of the necklace to a hook and the pendant. 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.
