Step 1

You will need a Collage sheet by Nunn Design (or an image of your choice), a glass dome and a corresponding bezel by Nunn Design as well as Nunn Design glue. You will also need a paint brush, scissors and a pencil.

Step 2

Use the glass dome as a template and choose the area you wish to cut out.

Step 3

Trace the glass dome with a pencil.

Step 4

Cut out the image on the traced line.

Step 5

Paint a thin layer of Nunn Design glue onto the back of the glass dome using a paint brush.

Step 6

Carefully apply the back of the glass dome to the image. Apply pressure to remove any air bubbles. Set aside to dry for 5 to 10 minutes.

Step 7

Apply a thin layer of glue to the front inside surface of the Nunn Design bezel using a paint brush.

Step 8

Add the dome to the glued area, paper side down, press firmly and let dry for 5 to 10 minutes.

Step 9

Congratulations! You have created a glass dome bezel pendant!
