I have loved Scrabble tile pendants since I first saw them, years ago... And finally got around to making some! These will be Christmas gifts for two of my daughters.


This one is for Lydia. Not only does she enjoy Scrabble, but she is mad about Dr. Who. Fortunately, I found a perfectly sized image of the Tardis in my old ThinkGeek.com catalog. Actually... I found scads of images in that catalog for lots of geeky awesomeness. I made a Domo pendant for my sister, but forgot to take a picture of it before I mailed it.


This one is Rachel's. While camping in Camden, ME over the summer, we were exploring the beach, and she found the tiniest sea star ever. It was not even 1/4 of an inch across. I took a picture for her, and decided to print it off and turn it into a necklace - kind of a memento of our trip.

Unfortunately for the pics here, my camera battery was dying, so it wasn't focusing as sharply as it ought. But in person they look quite decent. Amazing how the close-up shows every little flaw, though. Sad  I'm lucky, I guess, since you can't really see them on the pendants themselves!

I love the tardis one! And the starfish is very cool --very creative!

I was thinking of making some of these for Christmas presents this year as well. You've totally inspired me to go through with them.

Thanks! =) The tardis one is my fave, too.

ScrappySue, they are super easy to make. I can't find the link of the tutorial I followed, but basically: cut your design a bit bigger than the tile. Glue it down, let it dry, then carefully cut the excess paper off with an exacto knife. Mod Podge the design and the sides of the pendant. Let dry. Then apply a coat of Diamond Glaze. Aleene's Paper Glaze is pretty much the same thing, but I don't think it is quite as good a quality as the Diamond Glaze. The ones I used the Aleene's Paper Glaze on took forever to dry, were super cloudy for a few weeks (like, you couldn't even SEE the design. I almost threw them out!), and it doesn't seem to finish as hard as the Diamond Glaze. Glue a bail on and you're all set.
