Introduction: Blue Öyster Cult Pendant
Don't fear the reaper... join the Congregation!
I always wanted to do something with the Blue Öyster Cult logo! I also love to pick sea shells on the beach (I must admit I never use them)... so I had an idea! Put them together!
Pick some shells on the beach. The bigger the better!
Pick one and paint it blue. I used nail polish because it's a little transparent and you can still see the shell's natural drawings.
Take sharpie (one for marking CDs) and write down the letters. I copied the typography, so you must google Blue Oyster Cult and you'll find the pattern! Finally I drew the symbol. I drew it directly on the shell without patterns or schemes.
I varnished it with Mod Podge. DO NOT USE transparent nail polish cause the letters will melt! Probably other varnishes will work too.
Once it's dried, make a hole with a gimlet. Be patient and do not force it because you can break it. It takes a while...
Insert a piece of wire and make a loop on the top to hang the pendant.
Fill the shell with hot glue. Make sure the wire is covered by the glue to avoid losing it. Let it dry.
Paint the glue with something. I used black nail polish cause the blue one was not dark enough.
Finally, add a ring and put a leather cord through it.
Welcome to the Blue Öyster Cult!
To set yourself in the right mood, listen The Congregation by Alice Cooper... :p (not the best song in the world but quite funny)
Yes! I finally made something with a shell!
