You crafty gals have made my day,
I'll show you why, if I may.

My marbles were, at first, oh so blah:



But now my marbles are so rah!



Marble pendants are so yummy:



And, to be sure, they're very rummy! Cheesy

I put them in the oven, 40 minutes at 450,
And now they look so beautifully nifty!

Thank you, lovely Craftsters, for making my day!
I love these marbles, hip, hip, hooray! Grin

P.S. I'm sorry for typing this post in rhyme,
But I simply couldn't resist this time!

Gorgeous work!  Thank you so much for sharing your pics.  I wondered if this type of marble would work for this project, but I hesitated to give it a shot.  Well done!

Yours are some of the nicest I've seen by far.

Thanks, everyone! Grin I found the marbles at a dollar store. (I tried two other stores, but one had none, the other had just the pebbled style, and I was too scaredy-cat to try those!)

CraftyPirateGirl, me too! I wondered if these would work or explode. Cheesy Luckily, it was the former.

FJD, thanks for joining in the fun!
I fear my rhymes have made everyone else run. Sad Tongue

Thanks, retro-redux
Now I'm embarrassed: aw, shucks!

I am a poet,
But I already know it.

Thanks for joining in the good times,
It's so fun to make up rhymes!

And sometimes I can't resist
The rhymes in my head insist. Sad Tongue

Tee hee, thank you! Grin

Oooops! I forgot to say, I used a premade bead cage. I'm just a beginner wire-wrapper, very sporadic results! Tongue

But thanks anyway, I aspire to be another JewelryArtist/Matthew! Cheesy
