Today I’m showing you how to make a stone pendant. It’s so easy and I like the rough look it has. The best thing though is that I made it from a stone I just found in the woods! I thought it looked really cool and decided to make a necklace out of it.
What you’ll need:
- Some sort of flat stone
- Mod Podge (optional)
Step 1: Draw the shape you want
This was the original stone I found:
You can decide to keep the natural shape if you want, but I decided to go for a geometrical shape and drew it on the back with a pencil.
Step 2: Filing
Use a rough file to file the stone to the right shape. I used an iron file, but others will probably work as well. My stone was quite soft (for a stone) so the filing went pretty easy.
Step 3: Drilling
Dril a hole in the middle of the stone. A good idea might be to start with a small hole and making it bigger gradually. My hole is 6 mm wide.
Step 4: Glazing
This step is optional but I used a layer of Mod Podge to give it a glossy look. You could also add a layer of clear nail polish for the same effect.
Step 5: Adding a string
Add a string to the pendant. I decided to make a knot to keep it from sliding too much. Add the clasp and you’re done!
And that’s it! I think it looks pretty cool. What do you think? Let me know in the comments!
