DIY Inspiration: Anna Davern Digital Print Jewelry. You could try using magazine or printed digital images, sealing them, then adding something like Mod Podge Dimensional Magic on top. First seen at Design Crush here. This video here shows that you can use Mod Podge Dimensional Magic without a bezel.
DIY Western Buckle Pendant by Joan Williams. I loved the uniqueness and idea of this necklace so much that I contacted the blog and the author (Joan Williams) to get permission to post this (because of copyright issues). This is so on trend but classic at the same time and I can see it being done in so many ways. Joan Williams has a wonderful Etsy store here: www.lilruby.etsy.com. Her antique brass drawer pull pendant is lovely. Her jewelry is:
“Vintage style jewelry with a bit of Art Nouveau influence and gypsy flair is my specialty, along with unique pieces created from found objects.”
