In September I was fortunate enough to attend a two day Vintaj workshop in Galena, Illinois at the Vintaj Earth Studio. It was an incredibly inspiring weekend with more tips and tricks packed into two days than one would think possible. One of my favorite projects was working with the new Vintaj Big Kick Machine. We embossed textures and images unto Vintaj blanks to create fun pendants and components.
Here are some class projects of the altered blanks embossed and riveted with charms and pendants. I love the look of layering the pendants. It’s fun way to customize your metal without hammering away or pulling out the chemicals. The process is so simple, you can whip out a ton of pendants in a short session.
Add the embossed blanks with your favorite art beads for quick and easy holiday pendants. In fact, that is what I’m doing this weekend to prepare for upcoming holiday shows. I’m pairing up the tree pendants with my egg, bird and branch beads.
