Glass Pendant Tutorial Easy Peasy Pendant

I love Soldered necklaces!!!!
If you have ever made a soldered glass necklace you know how time consuming they are. I found a quick and easy way to make these beautiful pendants. They take minutes and are so beautiful.
Take one awesome collage sheet from Cupcake Cutiees. These are the 1.5 X 1.5 Designs. Print your collage sheets on photo glossy paper. They look bright and vibrant and give the best quality. You will want to pick two designs for the reversible necklace. Memory Glass and Frames are from Ranger. They are from their inkessentials line and are BEAUTIFUL. These come in 1.5 X 1.5 inch, 1 X 1 inch ,and 1 X 3 inches. I used the 1.5 X 1.5 square glass and frames. I found the frames and the memory glass at Michaels and used the 40 percent coupon for extra super saving. They are great for scrapbooking, jewelry, and art.
Cut out two designs you love from your collage sheets. Be brave use a fun funky design on one side and a beautiful altered art to the other side.
You will have two squares designs and two glass squares. The frame opens on a clasp on the side.
Take the two design squares and make them back to back in between the two pieces of glass.
Add the two glass designs to the frame. The two glass pieces fit very smoothly in the frame.
Close the frame around the glass and you have a beautiful pendant. I add a little glue to the clasp for extra protection.
