I had a hard time deciding whether to put this in reconstructed or completed but they are marbles made into pendants so I hope this is the right place Smiley

I have all these flat backed marbles that I have many plans for, this being just one of them.
It was kind of an experiment Smiley But I think for a first attempt it worked pretty well.

Basically I took paper hole punches and colored them with colored pencils and then glued them on the back of the marble and attached a bail with two part epoxy and voila! A super cute pendant Smiley

Here are four I've made so far:

I have many more plans with this Smiley I can't wait to share with all of you!


Pics are gone, sorry!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Super cute!  I do a similar thing, but I was using makeshift bent end crimper thingers instead of bails, and a mixture of E9000 and super glue; I think you've helped me out tons.

Ya those bails come in handy I use them for several things! They are called Annarku (sp?) bails, you can find them the cheapest off ebay. And Thanks for your comment!

Those are so cute! I wouldn't have thought of them either!!

What are bails? The metal necklace part??

Have you thought of using colored paper and hole punchin that?? or they have the cool scrapbooking paper that may make cool designs!

I really, really like these!

Thank you very much!! Those are some of my ideas!! Cheesy
Paper punching magazines, colored paper, scrapbook paper.
Create other designs other than flowers...
Sooo many ideas Smiley

The bail is the silver part to hang the pendant on a chain. The bails I use are annraku (sp?). I get them off Ebay. Thanks Again So Much!

Oh I wanted to show these as well. I made these quite awhile ago last fall.

I wear them ALL the time, they are simple, cute, and go well with certain outfits. I still need to find a brown marble to make another one. They are just solid colored flat back marbles.
