Using photo seals–it’s awesome

Fun to make necklace great for you or gift giving

Here is an easy variation of the lanyard necklace I had in my previous posts. I am so excited because I found an easy way to attach an image to a bezel without “icky” adhesives. At Purple Mountain on Etsy, they sell these incredible photo seals. I wish they were a tad cheaper, but if you follow the explicit directions supplied, it’s well worth the cost. Shipping is super-fast. I live in Arizona and it takes just three days from their Florida location (I swear these people live next door to a post office).

To make this necklace I went to Joann’s ( and got Susan Lenart Kazmer’s round bezels (a package of five). I then ordered the 18mm glass and photo seals at Purple Mountain. It’s as easy as that. The only thing I found is that resin gives a piece a nice brownish-aged tint. To replicate that, I just darkened my image a little in Photoshop™. So get yourself some bezels, seals, glass and an optional circle punch and make that personalized gift. It’s easy and fast (hopefully).

Have a wonderful and sparkly weekend,
