Puptown Funk

by: Dwyn Tomlinson

This cut-out paw motif lends itself to modifications. You could hang 
crystals off it, or wire onto it, or back it with some leather or 
polymer clay. I chose to add some colour with the gilders paste - adding 
turquoise (patina) to pick up the colour of the chain. Although - I 
really like the leather idea ... hmmmm.

I glued the ends onto the chain - use a glue that is designed to work 
with metal and is not too runny. Dry fit the chain into the ends first 
to make sure they don't have a wire sticking out that will refuse to go 
in. Apply the glue to the chain, and stuff it into the chain end. Let it 
dry the full length of time that the glue says - if it says 24 hours - 
then leave it 24 hours and don't mess with it until then!

Apply the gilders paste to the paw pendant, and let it dry overnight. 
Buff it a little with a paper towel, and then attach with jumprings.

Attach the hook and swivel to the ends with jumprings.
