I have made a few implosion style marbles and have also thought about turning some into pendants. I haven't done it yet but I have an idea of how I might go about it. One way would be to add additional clear glass to the hot marble to make a pendant shape and form a loop of glass at the end. Another way would be to make a spacer bead and keep it warm on a hot plate. When the pendant is shaped, add the spacer bead to form the loop. I'll probably try the spacer bead method first.


Scott Young did a great tutorial that is posted on the WC forum (under the username of Jazzdog) and also on the gldg forum.
