Turning Leaf Necklace #2
Looking for creative re-leaf? This tantalizing treasure owes its origins to a Sizzix DecoEmboss Die by Vintaj. In addition to embossing an elegant image onto a Vintaj metal blank, it lends itself to any assortment of Vintaj Patinas and Glaze.
Other Supplies: 14mm Hook (Vintaj Item# CL55), 15mm Jump Rings (Vintaj Item# JR60R)(JR60), 27mm x 18mm Trailing Leaf (Vintaj Item# P0515R) (P0515), 28.5mm x 10mm Ornate Stencil (Vintaj Item# ADP0020), 4.75mm Jump Rings (Vintaj Item# JR20R) (JR20), 7.25mm Jump Ring (Vintaj Item# JR40R) (JR40), Vintaj Patinas - Weathered Copper (VPK34827), Vintaj Glaze (Vintaj Item# VPK34834)
Emboss a Trailing Leaf and 29mm Square Vintaj Natural Brass Altered Metal blank using the Dragonfly Pond DecoEmboss die. Use a paint brush to apply Vintaj Jade Patina to the Trailing Leaf Blank and one side of the Square blank. While Patina is still slightly wet, buff with the dark gray side of the Metal Reliefing block to highlight the raised designs. Layer and combine the embossed Trailing Leaf blank, two Ornate Stencil embellishments and a larger jump using a smaller jump ring. Attach the embossed 29mm Square blank to the larger jump ring to form a pendant. Attach a hook to a length of chain. Attach the non-hook end of the chain to the large jump and attach the other to an end of the Ornate Stencil. When completed and depending on how the pieces were attached, this necklace could be two-sided; sometimes the leaf is colored, and sometimes the square is colored. 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.
