Second Sunday of Easter
I Am Alpha and Omega, the One Who Is and Was and Is Coming
Revelation 1: 8
Jesus is all and everything. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet. He is everything from A to Z, from soup to nuts.
Make either a flat disc or the horseshoe-shaped omega from gold bakeable clay.
Cut lengths of gold wire (your art supply dealer may be able to order Mizuhiki, a gold-wrapped paper cord, from the Yasumoto company) to make the cross and the alpha (like a capital A) and press them firmly into the bakeable clay. Finish the design with gold beads if you like.
Bake according to package directions.
After baking, you may wish to finish the pendant with decoupage glue (ModPodge) or a wash of thinned white glue. You may continue to decorate with glitter, gold fabric paint, and gold beads.
Working smaller and simpler seems to produce the prettiest pendant. Glue a finding to the back and add a gold or black silk cord.
This design, worked larger in foam, also makes a pretty crismon.
