Vintage Poker Chip Jewelry-Altered Art Embellishment
These lightweight vintage poker chips are the perfect base
to create some wonderful jewelry pendants. With minimal
supplies you can have a vast collection of mix and match
You will need just a few things:
1. 2" x 2" digitally created images-
a variety arranged on 8.5 x 11 printable-background for quick printing
2. Print your printable sheet
3. Place a large 1 1/2" round page bubble
over the image of your choice. (Page bubbles can be found at your
local JoAnn's Scrapbooking section-there are a variety of sizes and shapes.)
4. Carefully cut around the page bubble
5. Using Diamond Glaze or liquid lacquer-glue the page bubble covered
image to the vintage poker chip and set aside to dry.
6. Using the same Diamond Glaze or liquid lacquer-glue on a pendant bail
to the backside of the poker chip and set aside to dry.
That's it! Once dry, the pendants are ready to wear. Use ribbon, suede lacing,
or ball chain as the necklace and you have a beautiful pendant. You can create
digital art to wear for every holiday, special occasion, give as gifts or to sell.
This poker chip pendants can also be used for a variety of altered art-simply glue
them to whatever surface you are using or add the bail and hang these in art
assemblages-like theaters or shadowboxes. A great way to add depth and interest
to your art projects!
Here are two images for you to start with-they are 2" x 2" for printing. Have Fun!
