I just love this idea!
I couldn't get hold of any braclet thingy to glue my marbles to, so I just glued them onto thin wire, and glued a pice of fabric to the back. it's not as professional-looking, but it is much cheaper  Grin


This is how the finished braclet came out:

**Edit** : Oh, and one more question, anyone know where I can find those 'droplets' to buy?  I know I can use the glass marbles, but I was hoping to find more of thos plastic droplet thingies just by themselves (sometimes I don't need the whole kit!)

they have got some the same or at least similar at artchixstudio.com.  They're called 'clear page pebbles' and they've got them in different shapes and sizes.

OK I have  ideas for those of us who can't find the bracelet findings and/or don't feel like ordering them online...

*FOR A PENDANT: make it 2-sided! Take 2 marbles and 2 pictures, glue them back to back with an eyepin between them... then fill the "valley" between them with glue then sprinkle glitter on it for a finished look...

*FOR SLIDER BEADS: Glue the marble on top of a thin disk bead

FOR A "LINK": Sandwich an eyepin(with ends sticking out) between the marble and a coin (penny?), and make a loop in the other end of the eyepin to finish

Off to try it, will post pics of my attempts...

I couldn't find any bracelet forms so I decided to try pendants.  Thanks for the inspiration.

hey! Shocked  To original poster and everyone else!!!!!

 1) what glue do u use (I heard Weldbond is the best- not as fumy)  and also, 2)  I've been using super glue (bad idea, eh?) All it does is glue the glass marble to the magnet but it makes the pic come out blurred (ink runs) and sucky!  Any suggestions?  Does the glue u use not make the ink run/keeps it clear?

One more thing....Where do you get the clear glass marbles?  I could only find the ones that are clear "lustre" (so the pic has a slight "glare"/irridescent shine and I don't want that!)  Help please!

Thanks!!!! Cheesy

Everyone: u can also e-mail me at melongloss@yahoo.com

Glue:  E6000   - It's really thick and the pictures only run (sometimes) if they are printed off a computer.  But I only had a few printed ones run; the rest were fine.  And I bought clear glass marbles at Wal-Mart!

will try the e6000- i use glue  for mosaics, it's clear and it holds but it smells really bad, and plus i've had problems with it getting weaker over the years.

Here are my bracelets.

Thanks so much to everyone on this thread for the great idea! When I started using craftster about 2 months ago I only knit, now I've been so inspired by what I can make I've taken up all these other crafts.
My wallet's not too happy though... Oh well at least my credit card companies are Wink
