Here are the necklace pendants we made using Shimmer Sheetz . . . a layer of black card stock covered with Be Creative Tape on both sides, and a layer of Shimmer Sheetz on each side. We fancied up our Shimmer Sheetz however we wanted, i.e., drops of alcohol ink(s) with the blending solution and then die cut. We then used our chosen embossing folder and placed the die cut where we would maximize getting the design where we wanted it. For this particular pendant, we were using the Sizzix Asymmetrical Rectangle die that has been retired. After embossing, some students chose to sand the Shimmer Sheetz and then apply StazOn ink; others only sanded to get the core color of the Shimmer Sheetz to stand out; and others chose to not emboss or sand.
For our first-time efforts, I think these Shimmer Sheetz pendants turned out beautifully. (I hope I was able to assign the correct artists to each of the pendants!)

Els recommends using the Sizzix dies for Shimmer Sheetz because the steel blade actually cuts through the Shimmer Sheetz very nicely.
Here are some more pendants that Els recently made, along with the commentary from her FB posting . . .
For these oval pendants, Els used the Sizzix Ovals #3 (657023) and then the Rings Asymmetrical (657025). You can order either or both of these dies from Art 'n Soul . . . come in and order or call us to order (360.357.6820).
And I love this . . .
