Eggshell Pendant - Faux Stained Glass

I recently saw a post on Happybird's blog with a tutorial on how to create a necklace pendant using eggshells to make it look like mosaic or stained glass.  She used alcohol inks, which I didn't have, so I just used plain ol' acrylic paint and I think they turned out pretty good.




My little man helped me make some of them - painting the pieces black, applying the eggshell, and painting it too.  I applied the Glossy Accents and the bail.  Here's the one he painted...



And here I am wearing his beautiful creation!

Thanks for sharing this idea and I have to say it is really gorgeous and not very hard to do and I am sure you are double proud of them because of the help you got with the painting.
