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