This is my first real attempt at making jewelry. I have marble all over my yard and always wanted to make something out of it. So I decided to make a crushed pink marble heart pendent with a wave of white marble running through it. 

Hope you enjoy

Step 1: Materials and Tools

The materials for this project are relativity inexpensive. 

  • 22 gauge Sheel sheet ( I got a 12 in. x 12in. from homedepot for about $7)
  • 16 gauge steel wire ( I got 25 ft. for $3)
  • 2 part Epoxy resin ( I got "Easy Cast"from Michaels for $13 and I only used .5 of a tsp of the resin)
  • A normal paper clip
  • Etowah marble (pink)
  • Creole marble ( white with blue streaks)
  • Template ( I cant draw to save my life. I goggled heart and printed out one of  wikipeda's images.)
  • Sand paper (100 grit, 150 grit, 220 grit, 400 grit, 1000 grit, 2000 grit. The higher grits can be found in the automotive section of walmart for about $3 a pack)
  • Roatory tool (I used a Demeral and the sanding drum bit)
  • Grinder (I used a small bench grinder)
  • Tin cutters ( Homedeop sells a 3 pack for $10)
  • Propane torch, solder, and flux ( Homedepot has a starter one for $20 and it comes with solder and flux)
  • Hammer
  • Polishing compound 
<p>so i sanded up to 1500 on a lot of my projects, then i tried with a polishing compound on my dremel sanding wheel and i just messed up my previous finish. it made it more dull then before so i dont know what i am doing wrong.</p><p>any ideas??</p>
It looks gorgeous, nicely done!
Just love this keep it coming just beautiful! Thanks
Beautifully well done! <br>One quick question though, where do you get the marble?
Thanks for comment. Ga Marble used to own the land I live on. They left piles of marble all over it. So I got mine from my back yard. You can try your local rockstore. They have a lot of cheap rocks in various colors. They may not have marble but they will have a lot of different colored rocks that I bet would look great in the pendent.
also, most any aquarium store.
I like this.
Thanks a lot. It means more coming from you.
