Picture of Kollabora's DIY Chip Bezel Pendant
No doubt you'll catch more than a few eyes with these gorgeous chip filled bezel pendants. Choose your shape (circle, square, or rectangle) and fill with either the subtle sparkle of Pyrite chips or a beachy mix of Abalone and Mother of Pearl chips. Either way, you'll have an artful and naturally beautiful new piece you'll want to keep wearing season after season.

Step 1: Step 1

Picture of Step 1
For this project you'll need one bezel pendant, abalone/mother of pearl or pyrite chips and a small tube of E-6000 adhesive.

Step 2: Step 2

Start by covering the inside of the pendant with a layer of glue. You don't have to fill up the base entirely, but make sure there is a generous coat so the chips will attach.

Step 3: Step 3

Sprinkle a few pyrite or abalone chips onto the glue layer and lightly press down. If you find any gaps you can add more chips or move the existing chips around until you have the desired look.

Step 4: Step 4

Allow your pendant to dry for about 5-10 minutes.

You can string onto a ready-made chain or cut one to fit your length preference. Keep in mind that if you use a ready made chain you may need to remove the clasp or catch in order for the chain to fit through the bail of the pendant.
