You’ve seen them. Cute, adorable, fashionable, quirky, personable little necklaces, bracelets, charms, rings, pendants… How do they make them, you ask! I’m here to show you.

I’ve been hand making glass dome baubles for over three and a half years now (you can see my two Etsy stores here: Mystic Galaxy and Bubble Cat). I’ve tried so many numerous ways to make them, and have learned what to do, and what not to do. I’ve tried many glues, some good, some great, some just meh. Just ask my husband. He cries tears of boredom whenever I mention the word glue. It has become a household joke. Getting the paper right. Getting the ink right. Getting the technique right. And of course, getting the right kind of glues. All of this, along with some practice, will help you get your glass dome jewelry just right! Let’s start!
