Are you still in the mood of Valentine? Because I am!
And in this post I want to show you a recently found hobby of mine, which now has been an inspiration for a new collection for jewelry brand, VERONA.
It is called cabochon pendant making. It is not a new DIY technique, but in Indonesia it kinda is. Basically, with this method you can make a pendant with unlimited imagination. You can put any pattern, writings or pictures, using so various materials (such as paper, nail polish, glitter, dry flower, etc.) and preserve them neatly under a protecting glass dome.
It is not easy at first, trust me! There were a lot of chaotic moments just to make one simple pendant. But practice makes perfect, and now I can make fine pendants and I can even sell them.
I created a series of handmade jewelry to sell on VERONA’s Valentine’s Day collection called “LOVE SPELL”, inspired by vintage love letters. I used an old book, because I always love the touch of aging-parchment looks. I took inspiring words out of it and put them in jewelry pieces so you can wear, see and use the power of the words everywhere you go.
I personally have given this creation as gifts for my loved ones. I really like to give personal gifts, to give them something that describe them or their favored words. And because it is handmade, every piece is unique. Even when two pieces have the same word, it will not be exactly the same. It is one-of-a-kind, just like your loved ones.
And, sometimes, the best way to show your love for someone is by telling them out loud with words. If it didn’t work, maybe you just need a little love spell 🙂
