Single-Strand Necklace with Apoxie® Sculpt, Rhinestones and Glitter

Football Pendant

STEP 1
Mix equal amounts of the Apoxie® Sculpt (equaling approximately the size of a dime) for two minutes, or until thoroughly blended.
STEP 2
Work the Apoxie into an oval shape approximately 12x25mm. Smooth using a finger or a piece of non-stick worksheet.
STEP 3
Use a toothpick to create lines around each end and one line down the center creating the pattern of a football.
STEP 4
Using a rhinestone positioner place Swarovski crystal clear chatons along the center line and lines around the ends. Place three chatons on either side of the center line simulating laces.

Place glass rhinestone amber yellow chatons in rows over the rest of the pendant, leaving room for the bail to be inserted on one end.
STEP 5
Apply white acrylic paint to the lines over the crystal clear chatons.

Apply orange glitter over the entire pendant and gently press into the Apoxie.
STEP 6
Press the peg from a sterling silver 5mm fluted cup onto the chaton-free end of the pendant.
STEP 7
Gently press the pendant onto a non-stick work surface flattening the back. Reform the oval shape with fingers if necessary then set aside and allow 24 hours for complete hardening.
STEP 8
Use a paintbrush and alcohol to remove excess paint covering the clear chatons.

Necklace Assembly

STEP 9
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and round-nose pliers open two sterling silver 6x4mm oval jumprings. Pass one jumpring through the loop on the football pendant and close. Repeat to attach the second jumpring creating double jumprings.
STEP 10
Pass the ring end of one sterling silver 1.25mm 24-inch cable chain necklace through the jumprings and secure.
