Map Tile Necklace


  • Blank glass tile
  • Scissors
  • Mod Podge
  • Sponge brush
  • Your choice of design, printed on paper
  • Jewelry bail
  • Super glue or E6000

Step 1:

Choose your image. Will you use a special photo? An eye-catching pattern from a piece of scrapbook paper? A map of a beloved vacation spot? Your business logo or monogram? The possibilities are endless. All you need to get started is a printed version of your selected image. For the pendant below, I wanted to showcase the spot where my family stays in Myrtle Beach, so I did an image search, scaled my favorite map to fit my 25mm square tile, and printed it out.Sparkly version of pendant Glass tiles are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, so choose whichever you like best.

Step 2:

Trim your image to the same size as your tile.

Step 3:

Attach your image with Mod Podge. Use a sponge brush to apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to the back of your glass tile. Place your image face-down on top of the Mod Podge. At first, you'll see white streaks through the glass, but it will dry completely clear. You can also add a little sparkle by using the Mod Podge Glitter formula!

Step 4:

Seal it. Once the initial coat is dry, apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to the back of your image to seal the design to the glass.

Step 5:

Attach a jewelry bail. Use super glue or E6000 to attach a bail to your pendant. Thread a chain through the bail, and your necklace is ready to wear.

That's it! Five simple steps, and you're ready to model your custom creation.

In determining the price for vehicle transportation, the weight of the vehicle plays a great role, while its market value actually doesn't. Nonetheless, the company may ask you to provide the year of your vehicle's make: the reason is that many common models have changed over time, becoming heavier or lighter. Thus, a heavier but cheaper car will cost more to ship than a lighter luxury car.
