Sequin Pendant Tutorial

Ready to make one? All you need are these 5 things!

  • Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
  • Beveled Pendant Blank
  • Embellishments
  • Necklace
  • Pin or Toothpick (to remove bubbles)

I am using a 1 inch pendant and Shells & Sand sequins from the In Paradise Sequin & Bead Quartets set from Buttons Galore & More.com

I cut a circle out of cardstock for the backing. I chose a color that matches the items I’m going to fill the pendant with. There will be a little of the metal showing if you don’t do this step, which is perfectly fine if that’s what you want. I have made these with and without the paper backing.

Put a thin layer of the dimensional magic over the paper. I know, there are a lot of tiny bubbles, but I’m just putting this layer down to hold things in place. If you see any huge bubbles, I would advise you get rid of those.

Start to fill the pendant and use a toothpick or straight pin to gently move the little pieces where you want them.

Make sure you dont just have a big pile stacked in the pendant. Check to see that it is fairly level with the top of the pendant and everything is laying as flat as possible.

I transferred my mod podge to this little bottle, which can have its pros and cons.  There is a chance of creating more bubbles, and that is not a good thing. But I felt I had better control of the liquid this way. It is kindy runny and can get everywhere if youre not careful. I have done this a few times, so I didnt have too many issues with it getting super bubbly.

Although if you do get bubbles, be sure to pop or remove them by pushing them to the edge with your pin/toothpick and clean off with a wet paper towel… or you can just wipe with your fingers like I did.

It will start off cloudy and should clear up as it dries. If it doesn’t, you probably used to much of the mod podge so here’s a tip –  If you use just a few embellishments, you will need to use less of the mod podge. Be sure not to over fill because this will give the pendant a super cloudy look. Use just enough to cover the top of your embellishments. If your worried just fill it a little at a time. I have at times only filled the pendant halfway, let sit for about a hour or 2, then returned and added more later.

I hope you like this and find that it is easy-peasy. This is a really cool way to use up some of your left over embellishments and show off your one of a kind creativity.
