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!
