Introduction: Glass Acorn Pendant

About: Hey! My name is Stella and I'm 50% Romanian and 50% Greek, but I currently live in Thessaloniki, Greece. My life was always been about crafting and fixing things. I tend to think about other uses of things tha…

My favorite materials are wood and glass, so this could be my favorite pendant! :)

Step 1: Tools and Supplies



This means that by using them I earn a small percentage of your purchase, without charging you anything extra.

Step 2: Drill the Cupule

Find a drill bit of the same size as the jewelry wire you're gonna use. Drill a hole at the center of the cupule using the rotary tool.

Step 3: Wire Loop

Cut the jewelry wire with a cutting plier and bend it at one end to stay in the cupule. Bend the other end with a round needle nose plier to form a loop. You can use hot glue to secure the wire in the cupule.

Step 4: Glass Marble

To glue the marble on the acorn cupule use a glue gun, apply hot glue on the cupule's rim and then push and hold the marble still for a while. Remove any suplus glue that got out of the cupule.

Step 5: Cupule Varnish

To varnish the acorn cupule you can use a clear varnish spray or resin. I chose to do it with the spray, because it dries faster and I can spray many layers until I reach the desired look. Wrap the marble around with a paper tape and let only the cupule uncovered. Spray it with the varnish and let it dry.

Step 6: This and Other Versions

Use a necklace cord to wear it and enjoy its beauty!

I made some other versions of it in the past and I want to share them too!

I hope I inspired you to do beatiful things! :D
