Glass tile pendants

Making necklaces

This shows my messy working space and the fronts and backs of my current glass pendants in the making.

As a complete jewelry novice crafter at Lark, follow my blog to check out how a beginner gets started in making her own crafty pieces through inspiration and trial-and-error. And I’ll also post about pieces that are just plain awesome.

This week I’ll share how I started making glass tile pendants. I was first inspired by necklaces at a local artist’s booth at The Big Crafty in downtown Asheville last year. The necklaces were out of my price range, so I did some research to see how I could make them myself. It’s SO easy once you gather the supplies.

Basically, you need to find where to purchase the glass tiles first. I found a great site called Artfire that sold some cool rectangular shapes. You’ll also need jewelry glue (I used E6000) and clear glue (Aleene’s Tacky Glue) and metal bails (to put a chain through.) You can find all of those at your local craft store like Michaels.

A good visual step-by-step can be found at unwed human female.

A good friend of mine recently gave me a soldering iron, so I plan to eventually upgrade the pendants I made with soldered edges, but that’s for a future blog.
Thanks for checking in and hope this inspires you to get crafting!
