This is a faux enameled pendant made with the Pewter Emboss metal and Fimo Gel and Fimo Gloss Lacquer.  This was a class offered at CHA 2007 from American Art Clay.  It was pretty simple to do for such a great look. 

Art Emboss Metal Sheets - These sheets are 100% metal.  A special manufacturing process makes the Art Emboss extremely soft and pliable.  All you need to work it is a fine point stylus. 
There are 2 weights of Art Emboss metal sheets: light and medium.  The light sheets are perfect for intricate detail patterns and decoration of light objects such as cards and tags.   The medium weight works well on photo albums, books, picture frames, gift boxes and a variety of other fine art projects. 
These metals can be used to decorate virtually any object in your home.

Art Emboss Metal - Medium Copper~ This is similar to the pewter above except in copper color.  You get 1 sheet that measures 9 1/4" x 12".  This is 100% copper metal.  It also includes a tracing pattern and tool.
$11.95

meshuse.jpg

100% Pure Copper Wire Mesh~ This is real woven metal fabric!  It sews like cloth and cuts with scissors.  You can use it in jewelry, books and many other craft and home decor crafts.  It is 80 mesh woven- I guess that is like the gauge of it.  The picture on the packaging shows it folded into wonderful mountain/valley folds encircling candles and with beads hanging from it.  Beads and other embellishments just beg to be used on this!  It also shows some albums and books that have the cover cut out in a square shape and the wire mesh is in the insert- very classy looking.  You can fold, gather and crimp it into many desired shapes, twist or sew the end threads of wire mesh around wire, wood or metal and  sew it onto regular fabric for stunning wearable art. This stuff has so many possibilities.  You get one sheet measuring 16" x 20".  This is the stuff thay have used on shows like Trading Spaces to cover someone's body and it retains the shape and then hang on the wall for a unique sculpture.
$18.99

brassmshuse.jpg

Wire Mesh-Brass~ This is 100% brass woven in a mesh like a fabric.  It sews like cloth, custs with scissors and can be used in all types of arts, crafts, jewelry making, home decor and more.  it is a pretty goldish brass color and comes in 1 - 16" x 20" sheet.
$18.49

Art Emboss Metal - Medium Aluminum~ Same as the others except in the medium weight aluminum.  You receive one sheet measuring 9 1/4" x 12".  It also includes a tracing pattern and tool.
$7.29

metaluse.jpg

Metal Accent Sheets-Floral Borders~These are wonderful soft aluminum, pre-embossed designs and come with self adhesive backing.  You get 2 strips each of 4 different border designs, 8 strips in all.  Use them as borders or accents on cards, jewelry, frames, boxes, scrapbooks, journals, home decor projects and whatever else your inmagination can come up with.  They look great on spiral bound albums up next to the spirals.  Just a thought, haven't tried it, but I think you could accent the designs by adding inks or paints and then almost immediately wipe it off leaving some of the ink in the receessed areas.  The strips measure approx. 7 3/4" long and approx. 11/16" wide.  They are fairly pliable too so that if you wanted to embellish the perimeter of a box, I think you could wrap them around it.
$2.49

metsheet2use.jpg

Metal Accent Sheets-Art Deco~ These are same type of product as described above but have different designs.  You get 4 strips in all with 2 repeating patterns, one is a nice scroll type pattern and the second is an interesting art deco design.  The center panel contains 2 book plates, one with an oval center and the other with a rectangle center.  You also get 2 large diamond or square patterns with 4 matching corners.  The large diamond or square measures approx. 1 5/8", the smaller diamond or square measures approx. 1 1/4".   The matching corners measure approx 1" on the legs (the up and down sides) and approx. almost 7/8" from the corner tip to the inside- 8 corners in all. 
$2.49

metal2use.jpg

Metal Accent Sheet-Borders~This is a set of borders, 2 strips of 4 different designs, like hearts, fleur de lis, leaves and flowers.  The strips measure almost 7 3/4" long and approx. 3/4" wide.  Very versatile and flexibile enough to wrap around something.  See above descriptions on the other styles for more uses.
$2.49

pliers2use.jpg

Metal Hole Punch Pliers, 1.8mm~These are great to punch holes in your bottle caps to make necklaces, bracelets, ornaments, hang charms from, etc.  This tool will punch a 1.8 mm hole in metal sheet stock up to 20 gauge; ideal for cold connections and creating pendants, creates a smooth hole with no rough edges or dents in sheet, extra long jaws for extended reach and a bonus replacement pin included. 
I used this on some of the samples I recently posted and worked great.  I am a tool junkie anyhow and I do have other tools for punching holes like the Crop-a-Dile and the rectangle bar shaped hole punch that will punch on both ends- don't know what technical name is- both of thes work wonderful but they don't work very well on the bottle caps.  So this tool is invaluable for them.  You can also punch holes in bottle caps using a wood block beneath you and a nail- and I have- but this is so easy and clean and sweet.
You can also use this for punching holes in brass blanks- works great and it is a very clean punch.   It comes with instructions on the back of the package-especially for using the gauge guard (which is the back screw like thing closer to the handles). 
$11.59

 Attention:  Out of the Office Notice
I will be out of the office Thurs. October 23rd and the following week.  I am going into the shop for a big tune-up- a knee replacement.  This will be my 2nd so I will have a complete set.  Hopefully this one won't hurt.  So, depending how it goes, I may be shipping a little during that time.  So plan any needs you will have for tape and such accordingly.
Thanks so much!!!!!
