Not sure if this really belongs on this thread, as most of these arn't real glass, but that's what I'm shooting for Smiley


This was the first project. I found these clear plastic shoes on ebay, and decided to make a slightly twisted version of Cinderella's shoes. I was going to use real broken glass (I've worked with it before in a Sculpture class) but got vetoed by the parents :p So, I started experimenting, and found that if you cut out jagged pieces of plastic (from bottles, etc) and cover them with hot glue, it curls/melts into something that looks like molted broken glass. I wasn't sure if it looked authentic, so I showed them to my mom. She started yelling at me for using broken glass when I was told not to. Mission accomplished Wink


Same general concept used to make a necklace. And they call me an ice queen..



My sister loved this wine glass, and I got asked to make her a set for Christmas. I used E6000 to attach these plastic pieces so I think she should be able to use/wash them. Here's hoping

I love this idea! I now feel like I need to make a necklace like this. People have said I'm wearing broken glass when I wear my CD necklaces, so I might as well freak them out even more  Cheesy
The shoes are awesome too; very "evil Cinderella" I think.

Thanks guys!

I love this idea! I now feel like I need to make a necklace like this.

Its super easy to make - it just takes some plastic, hot glue, chain and nimble fingers (you know, that or a few minor burns..)

Wow!  This is SO very cool Smiley  I love everything, but am really digging that wine glass

Yeah the wine glass is one of my favorites. I havn't really tried yet, but I think I should be able to use it as a regular glass (although I must admit, I drink chocolate milk out of wine glasses more often than wine)
