Howdy Crafsternistas! First time poster after lurking for a bit. Love this site to distraction. These glass marble ideas after fantabulous, I must make some immediately.
zen child, you said you were in the UK right? Try IKEA if they are close to you. They have a bag of the marbles in clear and colors for ₤1 (Hope that's the right currency symbol  Huh). Check the website to be sure they are the ones you want.
Happy crafting!

Yep, that's the right currency symbol... Y'know, I never even thought about IKEA, but sadly I cannot get there because my nearest store is still too far away.  Cry  This makes me sad.

Edit:  I've found one UK site here which seem pretty decent with them...

zen, quite a lot of the cheap shops have them as well, and department stores which have craft/ home decorating areas, and also little kiddies "fairy" type shops.

Just look around. They're also known to me as "wish bubbles", so maybe it should help Smiley

You might also want to try any landscaping shops around you. They are also known as "florist stones" to hold a few stems of flowers in a clear vase.

ok, MissTee_2, and bluehariedmary...i was all excited to post my pictures, i've been making these marble on ribbon necklaces for awhile....and i see you two have already posted the same "style" that i use.
oh well...here are my pictures anyway, i don't know if you can tell, but the picture is of a compuer "esc" (escape) key, and it's got a pink tint to it. i liked the idea that it seems sort of anti-technology, or like saying "escape..." or something.

sorry if the picture turns out huge. i don't know what's up with that....

p.s. bluehaired mary, i love your picture (of the dog) and that phrase, "craft or be crafted." soooo great!

Where did you find a marble so big? I have a bunch of smaller ones that could be used for earrings and for a braclet, but I love what you did with your necklace. Can you find them at local craft stores?

Nelly:  you can find big flat marbles like that in the stained glass store. They are called globules.  You want to check out that they are clear, though because a lot of the larger ones have imperfections in them. I found that out the hard way when I went to use them as pins for holiday presents last year.
To the person whose photo's didn't turn out right: you could photocopy the picture. Then you wouldn't be ruining a good photo, plus it would come out on thinner paper and wouldn't wrinkle so much.
