Baked Marbles..so very pretty

Baked marbles? Yep just that baked marbles..What does that mean exactly?? It means baking standard playing marbles in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes and dropping them in an ice bath for a cracked look. Why would anyone want to do such a thing?? Well why not! I saw them first on Pinterest and thought hmm what are these things and can it really be that simple and what would I do with them once done..Well here is my DIY and what I did with these sparkly little beauties..

Bought these for $2 and picked thru for all the clear ones..

Regular Marbles

Placed them in a mini muffin tin in the oven at 350 for 20mins..

Dropped the hot marbles in an ice bath and heard snap crackle pop..

Chillin

Left them in the ice bath for 10mins, pulled them out and although cracked I wanted MORE crackle, so I repeated the baking an icing process one more time and got these lovely little beauties..

All cracked on the inside and sparkly

Now I decided to make these little beauties into necklaces..I epoxied a crystal finding onto the marble and let dry..

Little Crystal Balls

The final outcome, I epoxied a jump ring to the Crystal finding attached a chain and WhaLa!

Baked Marble Necklace

We have quite a few of these to play with and decided other ideas for them, My Deider asked that I make one for his teacher since as he says “she would so love a blue one, she likes to sparkle” It was a fun little DIY and super easy and cheap to make..

    • Teandra, This is a crystal finding… it’s basically a term for extra components to a piece of jewelry.. I used a crystal rondell to epoxie to my marble.. earrings would be very cute!
