I have jumped on the silhouette bandwagon.
At Christmas I made silhouette pictures for the grandparent's presents. Here are the pictures.
I will have to share those later.
There are plenty of directions online on how to make your own silhouette pictures. I made my silhouette pictures by taking a profile picture and then printing it out and tracing around the profile with a pencil using a lot of pressure. Then I turned the picture over and traced over my pencil line that I could see through the paper with a marker and then scanned the outline into my computer. Then using photoshop I filled the outline in.
To make the necklace I used MS Publisher. I made a 5/8" circle and shrunk the pictures to fit into the circle.
After I got the size I wanted I printed them out and using a 5/8" circle punch I punched them out.
Then I found a flat glass stone that fit it.
I used Mod Podge to glue the picture to the glass stone.
I put some Mod Podge on the stone
Then I put the picture on. It looks cloudy now but it dries clear.
Then I put on another layer of Mod Podge to cover it and and seal the edges. After it dries I check the edges and if I can still see the edge of paper I put another coat of Mod Podge on.
After it dried I glued on a flat glue-on bail.
I used E-600 glue.
Then I attached a jump ring to the bail.
Then I attached it to the necklace using beads as spacers so that they lay flatter when worn.
