Glass Pendant Necklace

In preparation for Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d try my hand at making a glass pendant necklace, so I would have something cute to wear. I must say I am LOVING how it turned out!
I added a pink ribbon to wear it. Right now, I just tie it in a bow but I think later on I might add a clasp or chain instead. This one just has a piece of scrapbook paper with a pink heart that I distressed the edges with brown ink. Then I mod podged it on the back and added a bail. I love it so much I decided to make some more.

These next few are ones that I’m still working on. They have bird pictures on them from various old greeting cards. Again, the edge of the pictures are distressed with brown ink.DSCN3909DSCN3910
These were all made using flat back marbles that I got from Hobby Lobby. They turned out great but they do have a bit of an iridescent shine to them, which can make it hard to see the picture. So, I decided to order some glass tiles that are actually used for making these kind of necklaces. I found a great seller online at Etsy and will hopefully get them in time for my girls’ craft night this weekend.  These would also make really great magnets by just adding a magnet on the back. Love it!
