How To Create A Photo Necklace

Creating memorial jewelry using brochure paper, resize software, e6000 glue, and blank pendants is a simple yet beautiful way to keep your loved ones close to your heart. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to create memorial jewelry:

Materials:

  • Brochure paper

  • Resize software

  • E6000 glue

  • Blank pendants from Our Journee Home

  • Glass dome cabochon

  • Exacto knife or blade

  • Mod Podge

  • Chain

Steps:

  1. Select and resize your image: Choose the photo you want to use and use a resize software to adjust the size to fit your pendant. You can select different sizes such as 25mm, 20mm or 30mm, depending on your preference. Print your image on the brochure paper, making sure to print it at the highest quality setting.

  2. Apply glue to the printed area: Once you have printed your image, cut it out and apply a generous amount of e6000 glue to the printed area. Make sure to spread the glue evenly over the surface.

  3. Attach the glass dome cabochon: Gently pick up the glass dome cabochon and push it onto the glue, adhering the image to the glue. Make sure to center the cabochon over the image and press down firmly.

  4. Let it set: Let the pendant set for 24 hours to ensure that the glue dries properly.

  5. Apply Mod Podge: After 24 hours, apply Mod Podge to the back of the paper, ensuring that it covers the entire surface. This will help to protect the image and make it more durable. Let it sit for another 24 hours.

  6. Cut around the pendant: Use an Exacto knife or blade to cut around the edge of the pendant. Make sure to cut as close to the edge of the glass dome cabochon as possible, but be careful not to cut the cabochon.

  7. Attach the pendant to the chain: Finally, apply a small amount of e6000 glue to the back of the pendant and set the cabochon into the pendant. Attach the chain, and you have created the perfect memorial jewelry.

Memorial jewelry is a beautiful way to keep the memory of your loved ones close to your heart. By following these simple steps, you can create your own personalized jewelry that will remind you of your loved ones for years to come.
