Crafty Individuals week: jewellery

How about some gorgeous jewellery today, with Gio's gorgeous bracelet and pendant. She used an image transfer technique for the bracelet and clay for the pendant.
Here's how Gio made her beautiful pieces.

I cut out some images from Crafty Individuals images - Film Strip A4 sheet and Love letters A4 sheet. I attached a piece of clear tape over the image, I burnished very well on the front and on the back, then I sanded the back a little bit and I sprayed it with water. I peeled the back gently until the image was revelead. I cut them in circle shapes.
For the chain I used an old simple necklace, and I turned it out in a bracelet, cutting it in 3 pieces and linking again with a new jump ring.
I added the circles to the bracelet using some jump rings.

For the pendant: I covered the little chipboard frame with Viva Pardo clay Agate (no glue is needed), I stamped the clay using CI-293.I coloured the clay with Dreamweaver Metallic F/X mica powders using a little brush. 
I made two holes on the frame before drying the clay. I dried the clay with the heat tool (or you can use the oven). I highlighted the raised areas with black gesso ( you can use black acrylic paint as well), I added some beads and the chain. I glued to the back of the frame an image from Love letters A4 sheet transferred on clear tape.
