Pendant Necklace - Altered Game Piece - Vintage Woman


I created this pendant with a "Bob the Builder" Memory Game piece. I picked up the game at a garage sale over the summer. I knew as soon as I opened the box that they would make excellent brooches, pendants and magnets. I always like to craft green when I can.

I used a variety of mixed media techniques to prepare the chipboard card. I then cut out my image from a collage sheet by Moonlight Journey. This one was a freebie but they have lots of sheets in their online store to choose from. I used mod podge to attach my image and then I covered the front and back with two coats of varnish to increase durability and water resistance.

The pendant is hung on 20" of copper toned chain with a spring ring clasp closure. A golden colored half pearl was added to her headband for some dimension. The woman has a very soulful expression.

You can make your own altered game piece pendant or this one is listed in my Etsy Store.

Tuesday Alchemy - #39 no cards
