How to make Blat Back Marble Jewelry Pendents from my friend Betsy!
Thank you so much Gail for inviting me over as a guest blogger to share my tutorial on how to make my flat back marble jewelry pendants. I've always been in awe over all your fabulous projects, giveaways, and tutorials. It's always fun to link up my projects with Catch as Catch Can where I always find the most creative and inspiring ideas.
I'm Betsy, and you can find me at My Salvaged Treasures blogging about my junking adventures, repurposing projects, and jewelry creations. I've been making these flat back marble pendants and necklaces for about five years now, and I still get asked about how I make them. I've experimented with a few different techniques, but discovered that this is the easiest and least time consuming way to make them.
I usually make these up two or three dozen at a time. Choosing the graphics is the most time consuming part, but I always have fun with it.

Betsy-thanks for a great tutorial! I think using the circle template is simple, but pure genius. I’m not sure I would have thought of that. I’ve often wanted to use that glaze stuff, but never have thought to buy it while I’m at the craft store. Thanks so much for hanging out with MRL today!
