Easy How-To Make Glass And Paper Jewelry Using A Bail Or Pendant Blank

I recently added more items to the Jewelry Making Supplies Page

When the new glass shapes and blank pendants arrived I tested out the pendant making process. This is super quick and easy!

Here's a little tutorial on making pendants with paper and glass:

1) Apply a generous layer of clear glue (I used Glossy Accents) to the flat side of your glass piece. Lay it gently down onto your paper artwork (scrapbooking paper, rubber stamp art, prints, drawings etc.) Allow to dry.

2) Cut around the edges of your artwork. Use a file to sand down any areas that are too close to the edge to cut with scissors.

3) Hanging options: You could wrap the edges with copper tape and solder around it. You could seal the back of the paper with your clear glue or spray sealer, then add a pendant bail on it for hanging. Or you could glue it into a pendant blank as I have done here:

I plan on experimenting with soldering jewelry using glass and rubber stamped art soon. I'll post a tutorial as soon as I do :)
