I found these stones on the shores of Lake Michigan and thought they would make beautiful pendants, but you can find stones at craft stores as well.

Directions:

Clean stones.

Brush stones with the sealer or gloss glaze

Let them dry on the wax paper and apply gloss on back side and allow them to dry.

Glue on the pendants.  Allow to dry and you are finished!  Put it on a chain or cord and show off your beautiful new pendant!

Happy crafting!
