Tutorial Thursdays Linky Party - Handmade Pendant

Welcome back to Tutorial Thursdays Linky Party.

Today I want to share with you an amazing handmade craft that a fellow Gonis Distributor shared with me. 

Once I tried to make a pendant like she had done, I was hooked, it is so easy, looks amazing and the variations are endless.

For this craft you will need:
Some Washers (Try to purchase nickle free or even better stainless steel)
2 or more colours of Gonis Decor* (A Universal paint)
Gonis Finisher* (A Water resistant Lack)
A Kebab stick or a toothpick

If you cannot purchase these products in you area you will have to substitute them (hence the descriptions in brackets). For more info on these products please contact me

Handmade Pendant DIY

I am using a combination of black and pink Gonis Decor.
Start by making a ring as close to the inner edge as possible.
Continue to build up on the rings with the contrasting colours until you reach the outer edge.

Using your Kebab stick pull the point through the still wet paint from the outside edge in.
Repeat at 3, 6 and 9 O'Clock positions.
Now, pull the Kebab stick from the inside edge to the outer edge in the middle of the "Petals" you have already formed.
Allow to dry.

Gonis Finisher

Once dry, cover with a layer of Finisher*.
Again, allow to dry.

DIY Handmade Pendant

Add a leather cord and you are good to go.
And there you have it, the easiest and most precious pendant, entirely handmade. My teenagers totally love this craft and have since made many a pendant for all their different outfits as well as gifts for their friends etc. Here are some examples of their discs :)
