Trying something different

I've seen these really cool glass pendants that have pictures in them on etsy and I've been wanting one! Of course, I could have just bought one from one of the many sellers on etsy. But then I would always have this nagging voice inside my head that said, "how'd they do that?" SO, in the true nature of a crafter, I decided to make one myself. This was my first attempt, and I have to say that it was very simple. I did learn a few things from my first creation, but I really love the end product. Enough that I'll even wear it! I love this project because the possibilities are endless. I can't wait to make up a few more, and especially, make a few for AbbyGrace to wear with her outfits that I make her. I see several of these in my future - what great little pendants for Disney trips these will make!

Actually, I can't take credit for coming up with the idea. There are tons of these all over etsy. But to learn how to do it, I purchased a kit from kristenskrafts on etsy. The kit came with instructions. However, I found a set of instructions that will achieve the same end result at
The only difference that I can see is that I used a product called Diamond Glaze as the adhesive on mine.

One more thing - the pics that I posted are of the 1.4 inch glass tile. There is also a smaller tile (about 1") that can be purchased. I don't think that either of these are any heavier than any other pendant I would wear. You would think that since they're glass they would be, but not so. I'll probably use the smaller tile for AbbyGrace because I think this size will be a little too big for her.


  1. Wow, kudos to you for figuring out how to do that! It does have lots of possibilities! Is the pendant heavy? You could put princess pics in there or whatever the outfit is! Abby
    Grace will look so cute in them!

  2. Care to share how you made it? Very nice pendant!

  3. I was looking at those on Etsy too. I have been looking at way too much stuff there lately. LOL
