I hope I am posting this in the right place, since I am most likely to end up using these for jewelry.  Smiley

I was in Walmart yesterday, and I found this bag of glass marbles...welll, they don't really look like marbles at all. I see lots of crafty possiblities for these! I will probably end up making wire-wrapped pins, but I wanted to show them to you guys, see what you think:

 Aren't they weird? There are a whole bunch in the bag, for 1.97. I....uhm, felt compelled to buy 'em.  Wink What would you make with these? Your thoughts?

I want to EAT THOSE!
YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHM!!  hahaha, they seriously look like candy, though.  I like the suncatcher idea.  I would also like to see them put into little tiles as kitchen accessories (pot liners, for example).  Just cause they look soooo yummy.  Grin

soo many possibilities for these...

mosaic coasters/ wall pieces / centerpieces to the tv table...maybe even those hotplate coasters...
you can smash them up into pieces then melt them together to make the suggested stuff above too - different variety i guess...
suncatcher tut works too
make little necklace pendants (they have tuts on wrapping round marbles, why not these?)
if they arent heavy you can make wacky earrings Smiley
Squiggly magnets Smiley simple and easy -- makes your fridge look soo much more interesting Tongue

hope that helps a bit...

Oooh I want some they are cool! (Haven't seen them anywhere here in the UK though   Sad )

I would wire wrap them to make pendants and bracelets!

I think they'd look cool as a mosaic on a tea-light candle holder.  Smiley
