This is all you need. Some type of backing, a few beads and other embellishments. For my pin, I used this filigree backing but any small surface will work. Even a bottle cap. Most of my beads are from broken bracelets or costume jewelry that I’ve had over the years.
Decide on your design and position your beads on the backing. Once you are happy with your design glue your beads onto the backing using E6000 glue or some other type of clear craft glue. Let dry completely.
Once your beads are set and the glue is thoroughly dry, apply the Dimensional Magic. Ideally, you’re applying the Dimensional Magic onto a solid surface. Since my backing was filigreed it kept seeping out the back. What was I thinking? To solve this problem, I let what remained on the pin dry and added a second coat of Dimensional Magic and it worked perfectly.
The Dimensional Magic is clear. I’m not sure why mine is blue. It could be a reflection from the blue crystal beads or it turned blue from the metal backing or the beads. I’m not sure but I kind of like it.
You can use this piece as a pin, or a pendant if you glued on a ring for the chain – even a statement ring would be fun.
