When Life Gives You Lemons....

Hi Everyone! Sometimes life hands you lemons, and in this crafters case, my lemons are in the form of a sequin explosion. Yup, you guessed it. Sequins everywhere!!!! I was working on a project and well fur babies and well, you get the idea.  So as I was trying to somehow contain the sequin chaos, I thought, ya know what could be pretty? Yup unicorn syndrome. Most crafters suffer from it. It is that Oooohhhhhh shiny syndrome. So without further ado....

I am using a large round glass and have applied glaze and glue, then sprinkled on sequins. Please note these are flat sequins, not the bowl type. I added more glaze and glue and more sequins. I kept a clear plastic piece of packaging I had laying around and used that to flatten the sequins to the glass. I then let this dry.  I did use super sticky dots to attach the glass to the pendant as usual, and actually did use  a bit extra to make sure the pendant stays stuck as the bottom isn't perfectly flat.   A Large Round Pendant Tray and A Rolo Chain  complete the necklace!

Quick, easy, and I have at least a few less sequins to clean up!

I love how much it sparkles and catches the light! What did you think of this project? Try it! I can't wait to see what you come up with!
