Glass Tile Rub On Necklace

This is a great project I learned at my upline's upline Debbie Menez. They are quick and very inexpensive to make.

They are made using glass tile found at a home improvement store, rubons, heavy duty glue (I used E-6000), jewelery spacers and ribbon or elastic cord. You could also put these on a chain. The tile comes in different colors and different thickness. I liked the shades of grey and black because most of my rubons are black & white. However, the one I made at Debbi's was with earth tone tile and I used an Old Olive rubon.

Here is a close-up of the jewelery spacers we used. We took one of the split rings off using needle nose pliers.

This is a photo of the back of the tile. The white paper backing comes already on the tile.

Here are a couple of different ones I made! One of my friends is making these to give as gifts and she said she put a coat of clear nail polish on top to seal them.

Put these in a fancy box and voila! Great gift!

These are really interesting. I like them but I wonder how heavy they are. I need to check out my local hardware/flooring store don't I? Thanks again for the idea!
