Blank Pendant Tray Settings for DIY Jewelry Making
Use the blank space to create a custom personalized necklace. Can be decorated with polymer clay, paint, rubber stamp and mixed media art. Use glue to adhere beads, charms, cameos, shells, glitter etc. The "deep bezel" styles (3mm+) are ideal for miniature mosaic tile jewelry using gemstone chips, small beads, cameos, or other flat back inserts from the beads and inclusions section. Bond inclusions with resin, acrylic paint or a strong gel glue rated for metal such as E-6000 brand.
Want to cover a photograph or print? Select a tray that has an optional insert. Great for making your own keepsake with a family photo or pet portrait. To bond metal to paper, use a clear drying glue such as Glossy Accents. The bottom, flat part, of an insert can be rubber stamped with Stazon ink and coated with metallic acrylic paints or glitter glue to create faux dichroic glass iridescent effects (shown in the example below).
None of the trays come with inserts, but a few common shapes may have inserts as an option in the listing. Many trays do not have matching covers manufactured for them (typically only simple shapes like circle squares and rectangles are available).

You can also "sort by" alpha a-z to see the trays in order of small to large.
