I have an endless fascination with anything that sparkles and glitters in the sunlight. Sun-catchers and glass orbs line my window sills and fill little dishes. So when I came across the idea of baking marbles to get beautiful little cracks while maintaining the smooth surface on the outside I had to try it and share it here.
When you are done you can use them in a variety of ways; try fitting them into jewelry or filling a pretty vase for display. Don’t stop at standard marbles, try cracking flat backed marbles and make them into magnets its up to you!
Step 1: Get Some Marbles
Step 2: Get Some Findings
Step 3: Bake at 450 Degrees F for 20 Min and Then Dump in Ice Water
Step 4: Assemble the Headpin and Bead-cap
Step 5: Trim the Headpin Down and Bend It Into a Circle
Step 6: Turn Them Into Wearable Jewelry or Little Sun-catchers!
Thats it! its sooooo easy.
