Rock Candy's "Girlfriend" image from their Girly Girl Image CD is a perfect photo for this silver circle pendant. There are several ways to get the perfect circle. I have a circle punch that happened to be the correct size for the opening of the pendant. I coated the back of the punched image with gesso. Be sure to seal images with a spray sealant before applying glaze. This will prevent the ink on the image from running or discoloring. Notice the ring of color around the image...this is what can happen if you forget to seal! I have to say that in this case the bit of green border worked out but it could have been a disaster. The image is a laser copy but an inkjet would definitely be a mess. The word "friends" was cut from a magazine and glued to the image. Two coats of Diamond Glaze were applied to complete the image area. I added my own handmade paper beads along with metal beads and a heart charm from my stash. Rock Candy Studios products used: Pendant, Grande, Silver circle, Diamond Glaze, Girly Girl CD, "Girlfriends" image. These pendants are so easy to use and the possibilities are endless. Besides the circle shape, they are available in other designs as well.
