We have been making glass tile jewellery for nearly 10 years (yep we where one of the first bead shops to write tutorials for magazines and bring the craft to the bead shows). When we first started the only two decent clear adhesive on the market Diamond Glaze and Mod Podge (which I still love as you can use it for so many things). Manufacturing caught on to the trend and a crop of new and improved clear adhesives hit the market with my personal favourite Mod Podge Dimensional Magic – 2 Ounces.
In a nutshell there are two main kinds of glass tile making where you get a glass tile and stick an image on it and then use a decorative surface for the back of the tile, glue a bail on. The other kind is where you use a glass cabochon (the glass has dome effect, slightly thinner) stick an image on and then mount the glass cabochon on a setting. The tutorials below (some on this site and some on our main website Beads Online) will take you through both techniques. Also if we make any more tutorials (which we will as that’s what we do) I will add them on – EnjoyXx
