Intro: Altered Glass Tile Pendant Necklace - Funky Foliage
This unique pendant is made from an altered glass tile from the home improvement store. The pendant is embellished with a raised foliage pattern. The funky fern is die cut from fun foam. Really...who knew? I painted the front and back of the tile with orange acrylic paint. I painted the fern brown and attached it to the tile with Glossy Accents. I then did some color washes and dry brushing to achieve the distressed and weathered final look. The piece is sealed with water based varnish.
The tile measures 1 7/8 x 1/2 inches. A rusty silver colored metal nut rescued from my husband's hardware discards is attached as a bail. I used Glossy Accents to glue the nut on and let it dry overnight. Then I used the Glossy Accents all around the base of the nut again to really reinforce the bond.
The pendant is tied on a 24" steel colored ball chain with a scrap of off white leather. The necklace has an organic earthy vibe.
