On our second date my boyfriend picked up a fake crystal from a flower pot at the mall and gave it to me (my name is Krystal)

I've been holding on to this glass piece hoping to surprise him by wearing it as a pendant, but the  back side is a little too sharp to wear against my skin. I was thinking something with resin or metal, but I'm not really sure.

First thing I thought was "Glue felt to it!" lol but that probably wouldn't look right...
If you sand the sharp part, would it look too scratched? Why am I asking questions when questions aren't answers?? BLARG!
...super fine grained sand paper might work, though...just a thought.

I'd probably make an attempt at wrapping it in some thin wire...  I got some rubber-coated thin wire in various colours a while back for pretty cheap from Walmart. I bet the rubber coated wire would feel better against the skin, AND probably wouldn't scratch the "crystal".

Good luck!

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Or make a cage for it in wire or small jump rings.  Or embed it in some resin, or (if it doesn't melt) some polymer clay.  Or, if it does melt, air dry clay or paper clay.

My mom has a really neat jade necklace, wherein the jade is held on by an interesting wire caging pattern. I thought I'd share it with you for possible inspirational...inspirings. Here are three views, and Hooray!

Think resin might be a good idea. Maybe a colorful resin base, with the 'crystal' attached with some more clear resin..

I would take something like this http://www.fusionbeads.com/shop/product/59238/
and use a jewelry clear drying adhesive and put the glass on there
