Altered Glass Tile Pendant Necklace

Altered Glass Tile Pendant Necklace

A glass tile from the Home Improvement Store has been altered into a funky pendant.

What you need

Glass Tile
Fun Foam
Acrylic Paints (orange, brown, red, white)
Hardware Nut
Glue (I used Glossy Accents)


This unique pendant is made from an altered glass tile from the home improvement store. The pendant is embellished with a raised foliage pattern. The funky fern is die cut from fun foam. Really…who knew? I painted the front and back of the tile with orange acrylic paint. I painted the fern brown and attached it to the tile with Glossy Accents. I then did some color washes and dry brushing to achieve the distressed and weathered final look. The piece is sealed with water based varnish.

The tile measures 1 7/8 x 1/2 inches. A rusty silver colored metal nut rescued from my husband’s hardware discards is attached as a bail. I used Glossy Accents to glue the nut on and let it dry overnight. Then I used the Glossy Accents all around the base of the nut again to really reinforce the bond.

The pendant is tied on a 24″ steel colored ball chain with a scrap of off white leather. The necklace has an organic earthy vibe.
