Mod Podge, the well known decoupage medium, is an all-in-one glue, sealer and finish for all sorts of craft projects. It's also useful in some jewelry designs as these tutorials suggest.
Or decoupage onto card stock like this pretty musically inspired necklace by Creative Passage. Via
If you want a firmer base and use the regular Mod Podge then attach paper to a glass pendant just like the tutorial by Simple Crafter. As she says you can use scrapbook paper, origami paper, old book pages or even photos. I'm thinking about old maps too!
Another option is to use regular Mod Podge mixed with fine glitter as shown by Alicia over at the Discount Creative blog for a quick design. It's so sparkly which is why she called it a druzy design. (A druse or druzy is a sparkly crystal coating on some rocks). You can use a ring blank rather than the metal hoop and disc combination she did.
Cupcakecult over at Craftster used mod podge to funky images onto polymer clay pendants.
You can also use Mod Podge just as a sealer to protect images and add other dimensional glazes on top. See Irene Helms pendant tutorial.
Go have fun like Amy of Mod Podge Rocks and create some funky art bangles with the technique and the Mod Podge!
Heather of Dollar Store Crafts has a really interesting combination going with her washi tape and mod podge statement necklace tutorial. She used Dimensional Magic.
