This flowered pendant is made from an altered glass tile from the home improvement store. The tile is embellished with a scrap of lace flowers that I have been painted dark gray. The lace gives the pendant a raised texture. The tile measures 1 7/8 x 1/2 inches. A shiny silver colored metal nut is attached as a bail. I used glossy accents as my glue. First attaching the nut and letting the glue dry overnight. The next day I added more glossy accents around the base of the nut to reinforce the hold.

You could use this technique for any little bits of lace or embroidery that you have. Imagine the possibilities!

I love the soft side of it with the lace & the hard edgyness of it with the nut hardware...it's wonderful!
