The flower ones are from the dollar store - four for a buck. That awesome peapod came from the gift section of a Japanese grocery. (Kawaii rules.) There are fabulous erasers everywhere, some of them nothing less than works of art.
To turn an eraser into a pendant, you need a hole. I wonder if you have ever tried making a hole in an eraser? It's tricky. You can't melt a hole like in plastic. Poking a hole is possible but difficult - either the material crumbles and splits, or the hole is too tiny to be useful.
So what's the trick? Power tools. Yep, to get the job done, gotta use a drill.
I used a drill press, but a Dremel tool works, too. You get a nice clean hole without splitting the material. Huzzah!
Once you have a hole, add a headpin or jump ring.
For the pendant bail, simply close up the jump ring, or make a loop above the eraser like so:
Then string onto a necklace and enjoy the cuteness.
I really like that last one - the raw amber is interesting with the strange jellylike pendant...it's certainly unexpected, anyway!
Thanks for visiting, you guys! See ya.
