Another quick tutorial- paper ephemera pendant

Following on from yesterday, I thought I’d do another mini-tutorial, this time using the glass cabs and settings from Beadcrafty. They are both 18mm x 22mm ovals so are compatible with each other, which means you can get the two essential parts from the same place.

You will need…

A bezel, a cab, a piece of paper for the image (scrapbook, ephemera, photograph, whatever!), scissors and Ranger Glossy Accents.


Squirt a bean sized amount of Glossy Accents onto the flat side of the cab and squish it down over the part of the paper you want in the necklace. Push it so that the glass goes clear again (Glossy Accents is cloudy when wet) and there are no trapped bubbles. Once happy with the position, wipe off the excess glue from the edges with a paper towel or a rag. Leave to dry for at least half an hour, preferably a few hours if you can spare them.


Cut around the cab close to the edge.


Squeeze a pea sized amount of glossy accents on the inside of the bezel and push it around with the nozzle to evenly coat it. Stick the glass piece on top.

I’ve got a few secret sewing projects going on for Christmas, so I can’t show you them just in case, but I will show you a bit of stippling I did yesterday on one of them. It was my first attempt at this, and I found it quite therapeutic- the texture is lovely. And I must say the pedal-less operation was particularly useful!

    I really love the map pendant. It could be made extremely personal and is extremely beautiful 🙂

    What a great idea. Never heard of Ranger Glossy Accents. Do they have it in Hobbycraft?

      I think so- it’s a dimensional glue, most cardmaking places will do it if they stock anything Tim Holtz or Ranger
