I've been busy today. I decided I wanted to make a Soda Can bead like the beautiful necklace I posted below. This tutorial is featured in the latest Belle Amoire Magazine written by Laurie Prophater.
Instead of the full necklace I decided that I would make a millefiore pendant using this technique. As mentioned in the tutorial, you cut out shapes from an Aluminum soda can (be careful....using heavy gloves and tin snips are advised). I then created a millefiore cane that I thought was pretty, using some leftover Premo Clay that I had. (the cane is on the right side of the picture). I added the cane to the aluminum piece using some liquid clay to help adhere the bottom piece.
This pendant has not been baked, sanded and sealed yet. I plan to add a silver bail and SS chain. Will post finished pictures later.
