What a wonderful idea! I bet you'll get lots of compliments on those when you wear them. I especially love the pieces you made into necklace pendants.

Thank you all for comments.

Amy UK - yes gourd are a vegtable.  A pumpkin is a gourd - but the kind I craft on are called hard shelled gourd - because when they dry the shells turn hard.  They are great for crafting and come in a variety of shapes and sizes.  I love them.

Olga - opps it's Gallery Glass (not galaxy).  It is liquid product used to make stained "glass" designs.  The clear version is great for adding a nice thick shiny surface to things.  This is the first time I have used it so I don't know how well it wears but it sure looks nice.

The Gallery Glass I got from Michaels craft store. 
The gourd I get from a couple of gourd farms in Northern California.  Try the California Gourd Society site for resources http://www.calgourd.com/index.htm
Or just Google gourds- you will be amazed at what is out there.

Thanks!  As you can tell, I'm not a gardener, but I thought I'd heard the name before.
