Wear your safety goggles before handling dapping tools.
Take one large silver round blank, place it on your steel bench block, hold metal blank with your long nose pliers and hammer using your textured hammer. Repeat to make three pieces. Punch one hole directly across the existing hole on two of the textured blanks. These pieces will now be called textured blank(s).
Take one silver donut shaped metal blank. Place it where it fits on your wood dapping block and hammer to form a concave shape. Repeat to make three pieces. These will now be called concave donut(s).
Mix a 1:1 portion of resin and hardener. Put a pinch size of blue mica powder (sold at Michaels Stores).
Take one textured blank and one concave donut. Place the concave donut on top of the textured blank so that the widest part of the donut is flatly touching the textured blank. Pour in your resin mix through the middle opening of the donut until you have filled to the top of the concave donut. Make three sets using the rest of your textured blanks and concave donuts. Let all three sit to dry overnight.
Using your round nose pliers, attach a jump ring through each of the two holes on one pendant. Open one jump ring enough to attach to your necklace.
Take the second pendant with two holes and thread one hole through the second jump ring on the first pendant. Attach a jump ring through the remaining hole on the second pendant and attach the final pendant to the remaining jump ring on the second pendant. Your pendants should now hang perpendicularly.
Your necklace is now complete.
