September Fall Crafts


Designer Craft Connections September Blog Hop

Theme Material: Vintage
Project: Vintage Lace Pendant

The Designer Craft Connection Blog Hop is a group of Professional Craft Designers who come together each month to inspire you to create.


This month we are using old or vintage objects in our projects.  My project uses vintage lance and some old buttons from my button collection.


While I used the traditional soldering method to create my necklace pendant, you can use Ranger Ink supplies to create your pendant quickly.   Plus, their glass slide frames  
come with a pre-soldered ring on the top of the frame.  That makes life SO easy.

You can find Ranger Ink supplies on their website.

You will need Ranger’s 1" x 3" Polished Chrome frame (1) and glass slides (2), piece of vintage (or new) lace, buttons (2), jump ring (1) and glass glue.

Cut the piece of tape to fit the glass slides.  Slip the lace between the two glass slides and then place the glass slides into the frame.  Close the little flap on the frame.  Glue the buttons on the top of the glass frame and let the glue dry.  Once the glue is dry, you can use a jump ring to attach the pendant to any necklace.
