    Pendant

    I've bought one of those backer plates that is a hot topic on IAP forums about 2 months ago. Its been too cold out in the shop to try it but I got out today and made this for my first one. I used tung oil as the finish but am not happy with it. Next one I will try spray lacquer. The beads were purchased at Hobby Lobby.

    Nice pendant.

    There is a bulk buy going on at www.thepenshop.net for the backer plate if anyone here is interested. It is located in the bulk buy thread.

    Dale,

    I got to the site-- Could not get to the "Bulk" thread -- members only.

    I have a backer plate with the indexer. I have made around 150 Pendants.

    Just curious if this is the same plate and the price?

    Remember the tea kettle - it is always up to its neck in hot water, yet it
    still sings!

    Tom,

    Looks good --- I use the "whatever finish"


    Was it fun? You are well on your way to make a pendant for all of the females that you know... maybe 3 each!
