Beach Glass Pendants!

Happy Saturday! My hubby is working late again, so of course I'm making my eyes fall out on the interwebs... But, today is actually my birthday, as of an hour and 6 minutes ago. :) The big 26... My mom said she wanted to get me some spices for my birthday this year since Justin and I love to cook together so much, but I have a super spice hook up (My Spice Sage, they have the best deals and great freebies! Plus, free shipping!, I'm sooo addicted!), so I instead told her I wanted a shiny new 6lb Rotary Tumbler! She had no clue what I was talking about, of course, but I had big plans for that baby! And there she is, tumbling away in my craft room with some raw Amethyst and Jasper that my momma threw in!

 So anyways, I have this thing where I'm always saving jars, and other glass stuff! I use them for crafts, cooking spices, leftovers, ect. But I always end up with a bunch without lids or that really don't work well for much of anything, so they have been getting stored under my sink and in my craft room, driving me nuts. Then I saw something on pintrest about making your own sea glass, and that really got my mind turning, or tumbling, if you like corny play-on-words! So I gathered up all the extra glass that I had around and took a hammer to it! With a towel over the glass, of course!

After a few days I had some pretty nice looking glass to work with! I have been meaning to learn wire wrapping, so I started with my new beach glass, and I really was happy with the results!
I mailed my mom the first one I made since she got me the tumbler!

I am really getting into the wire wrapping thing though, it's so fun!

These are currently available on Tophatter, but I will be putting them in my etsy shop soon too! They range from about $6-$18.

Thanks for reading my rambles on my birthday! Now lets hope my hubby closes the bar soon so I can have some birthday fun! See you next time!
