Thing-a-Day – January 9 – dried pod pendant

January 14, 2015

Day 9 of the Thing-a-Day Challenge

Materials: varnished lily pods, wire, gold leaf

Time to do something with those daylily pods from Day 8.

I strung copper wire through the conveniently hollow stems

They needed a little bit of glitter, so I added some gold leaf (easy to do with the still tacky acrylic varnish). And then just turned them into simple pendants.

Yes, I could have finessed the wire work, but I feel I figured out the basic mechanics of this process for “next time.”
