Window pane glass is very easy to cut. That's what you want to suse for these slides; it can be found at an auto glass store. Textured or colored glass is more difficult to cut (the darker the harder.)
Basically, you just so to a stained glass store and by a glass cutter (it might have a fancy name that is by -passing me at the moment.) they also sell these at home improvement stores.  Place a ruler that won't slide on the glass (mine has a corkboard like backing) and slide the cutter up the glass with a fair amount of pressure. You might want o trace the line with a sharpie first.  you can then snap it with your hands (being careful) if the peices are large or you can buy a pair of breaking pliars.  These you place perpendicular to the cut and  press down. The glass will break along the cut line.  Rememeber to break right away (while the line is still "warm" and never score twice.
Good luck! rememeber to wear safety goggles during all of this, maybe even gloves.  You must also brush off teh surface after every cut, as residual glass will ruin your score line.

Hi there, I'm new here and just love these necklaces!  I am trying to make some myself and ordered the foil tape from www.usartquest.com 
Can you buy the eyehooks from Michael's and how easy are they to put on if you use the tape?
Good stuff!  Grin

These are so awesome!!! But wouldnt they break??? I remember that in bio all you'd hear was the cracking of them...(that darn microscope piece that you dont know is that long until your stuff breaks)

check out this website http://www.art-e-zine.co.uk/cp.html
It has some beautiful microscope necklaces and also some links to get ahold of supplies. I especially love the vintage typewriter key bracelets they have in the boutique.
Here are a few of the ones I made

Hmmm...question real quick. How do you get eyelits on your pendants?

I believe they sandwich them in between the layers, with glue holding it together. Then you tape around the edges.
