It’s always nice to wear pretty jewelry, and even sometimes interesting or unusual jewelry.
Then there is the jewelry that’s meaningful, perhaps because it came from a loved one or has special memories.
Today’s project makes jewelry that is meaningful in a different way. By using words and images that resonate with you, you can make your piece completely unique and special.
These pendants would also make one-of-a-kind, meaningful gifts for friends and loved ones.
The materials list for this project is long, so I suggest while you have the supplies out you make several. This gives you an opportunity to experiment with different shapes, phraseology, colors and finishes. Along the way you’ll find some pieces that you like more than others and get practice with the techniques.

- Metal bezels
