Reversible Glass Tile Pendants

glass tile pendants

Here's a look at some new additions to my Etsy shop. I decided to try out making some glass tile pendants with photos that I've taken of flowers, etc. As you can see, I also made a pendant with one of my watercolors of my Lilly the Ladybug storybook character.

While making these pendants, I thought it would be nice to offer a reversible option to wearing the pendant. On the back of the glass tile & photo, I applied a layer of Apoxie Sculpt with a glittery coat embedded to the surface of Apoxie Sculpt. The glitter is adhered to the Apoxie surface so it won't flake off. However, to be certain, there won't be any loose glitter, I coated the surface with a protective glaze.

So how do you like the idea of a reversible glass tile pendant? And also, do you have a favorite from the pendants pictured?

Last year I did a blog post about when I made my first glass tile pendant from a starter kit. It gives a little bit of an inside look about making the pendants. If you're interested, click here.

They're very pretty! My favourite is the purple one on the bottom left, are they hydrangeas?

This is a great idea! I love the reverse side with glitter. Did you use Art Glitter?

Beautiful!

Thank you! No, these weren't made with Art Glitter, but I have heard wonderful things about Art Glitter and would love to try it out on some of my pieces. :)
