I did these quite awhile ago...I just used a glass cutter and cut up a mirror into different pieces.

For the first picture I used a lantern and glue gunned the pieces to it (not the best idea if you want to USE the lantern because the glue melts and off fall the pieces of mirror!)

For the second one I took a small shadowbox frame and used grout to cover the glass of the frame - sorry about the pic quality.

well originally they did have a purpose-- but for now they are just art.  I was planning on making a wind chime with them but they ended up being too hard to drill through...i drove over them with my car to flatten them (as i had done in the past for the same reason) however they didnt flatten well this time so i had to hammer them out (cover them with material so you don't mess them up too much)...then i used pliers, also covered with material, to bend and twist them....they are older utensils that you can pick up at just about any antique/second hand store for very cheap....just make sure you get thin ones if you plan on drilling through them
