*We recommend Mod Podge Dimensional Magic (or even Rangers Glossy Accents) This project wouldn’t really work with Diamond Glaze as from personal experience Diamond Glaze tends to bubble and you run into problems when you start to layer it over 2mm. Also Mod Podge Dimensional Magic doesn’t really take long to dry. You can use the original Mod Podge Gloss but the Mod Podge Dimensional Magic seals the lace at the end with a smooth finish.
1. . Cut the lace into a generous rectangle that fits around the pendant (see picture below). On the back of the glass chandelier pendant apply a layer of Mod Podge Dimensional Magic. Push out any bubbles from the Dimensional Magic and lay the lace on top. Push the lace down, make sure the Dimensional Magic covers the back of the pendant (if it runs into the outside of the lace this ok as it makes the lace in the next step easier to cut). If the Dimensional Magic runs into the front of the glass pendant clean up with a damp cloth. Take the head pin and push through the hole the top of the pendant and the lace. Allow to dry flat.
2. When the Dimensional Magic is dry, remove the head pin and take your scissors and cut the lace to fit the pendant. When happy apply a layer of the Dimensional Magic to seal the lace and help stick down the lace if it lifted. Take the head pin and push through the hole the top of the pendant and let the Dimensional Magic dry.
3. When dry add to your jewellery designs.

1. Thread the clasp on the tiger tail and sit it in the centre. The tiger tail is now divided into to two. Now thread on each side of the tiger tail two silver 4x3mm rondelle beads and one black 8x6mm rondelle bead.
2. Thread onto on one end of the tiger tail silver 4x3mm rondelle beads. Now take the other end of the tiger tail and pass through the same bead but in the opposite direction so the tiger tail criss-cross and the bead sits horizontally between the black rondelle beads.
3. Thread on one length of tiger tail one 4x6mm rondelle bead, one 8x6mm rondelle bead and nine seed beads. Now take the end of the tiger tail and thread back through the 4x6mm rondelle bead and the 8x6mm rondelle bead. Make sure the seed beads sit inside the bracelet when pulling tight. Repeat this step for the other length of tiger tail to complete the butterfly.
4. Thread onto each side of tiger tail one seed bead, one 4x3mm rondelle bead, one seed bead and one 8x6mm rondelle bead of the second color.
5. Repeat Steps 2 to 4 alternating colors, until you have in total seven butterflies (four black & three of the second colour). Finish by threading on each end of tiger tail one seed bead and two 4x3mm rondelle beads. Then pass both end of tiger tail through the charlotte end and one crimp bead. Using your flat-nose pliers secure the crimp bead. Trim the tiger tail and close the charlotte end. Attach a 10mm jump ring to the end of the bracelet.
