Been travelling for several days, lastly to Bead Fest up in Santa Fe. It was kind of an angel-filled weekend, so I made a kind of an angel pendant with some of my loot. Resin clay is an excellent hotel room project!
The Crystal Clay (color: Latte) and vintage rhinestones came from Beyond Beadery. The huge pendant finding came from Singaraja Imports. My friend Cheryl T. brought up a whole container of beads and pearls in blues and bronzes, so I used them to create this "kind of an angel."
To keep the hole open while mushing the resin clay around, I used part of the toothpick that comes in the resin clay package (each package includes a bit of wax on the toothpick to help pick up rhinestones). Once I finished pressing in the beads and rhinestones, I removed the toothpick from the hole. And now to root through the rest of Cheryl's gift to come up with a necklace and bail!
