This pendant features textured silver strips that secure the glass in the pendant. The pendant can be embellished with silver beads, cubic zircon crystals, and sculpted elements such as flowers or leaves.

After their pendants dry, artists will sand and polish them to get a nice finish. The pendants will then be fired in the studio and left to cool down overnight.

Everything is included, so no supply list. However, if you work better with extra light and magnification, please bring a work lamp as well as any magnification deemed necessary. precious metal clay
