hey everyone! i figured out the other day how to make super cheap and easy picture marble charms (I haven't been able to find blank bracelet forms and even if I did, I'm sure they would be to expensive)! Here's a tutorial!

1. Gather your supplies



2. Wrap the wire around the washer like so



it should make this



3. Glue on picture marble and you're done! Then you make bracelets, wine charms, earrings, necklaces and more!

hey i remember bracelets like that. that's pretty cool making them your self. (and i never knew you could cut wire with nail clippers, but maybe that's just me) and the washers make it easy to wrap the wire around. i will have to try this sometime! you could make some pretty cool personalized presents.

what size washers did you use? do they completely cover the marble?

3/4" they aren't completly covered but I personally like the little silver ring around them.

Totally cool -

Thanks!

Great idea. The little bit of silver showing sets off the pictures perfectly I think.
