Glass Tiles and Magazines

Hello! Today I would like to show you how
I made jewellery necklaces from glass tiles and wedding magazines.
Colorful Wedding Magazines made excellent images
especially when the glass makes the images bigger.
 I had three small flowers I layered leaving some tile exposed for a background.
I glued them on the back of the tile with 3D Crystal Lacquer.
 I used Terri Sproul Mixers to color the remaining exposed tile.
 I sprinkled the powder into the crystal lacquer.
After it was dry I trimmed the edges to match the square glass tile.
I glued on a finding to the back of the tile with
Crystal Lacquer and added a green hand dyed seam binding. And that's it!
Next I wanted a more neutral organic necklace. I chose a bird cage and wanted the birds in the background. I traced the round glass tile on my image and cut it out as well as the birds.
 I cut out both images round initially but when I layered them
 I fussy cut the cage to view the birds in the background.
I glued the images to the glass tile with Crystal Lacquer as well as the finding.
I strung the glass tile  with some hand dyed seam binding.

  1. GREAT projects Peggy! THANKS so much for sharing!

  2. These are fun, I'm sure there would be some great images in magazines to use. Nice choice of images. Love the bird cage.
