Could be she is using glass beads. My daughters took pictures of the grandkids a few years ago and attached them to the glass beads and then put a magnet on the back and gave them to me for Mother's Day.

Based on the irregular shape I'd say those are the glass stone-like things that you'd get at Hobby Lobby in the plant area. They're pretty heavy so you'd probably need a fairly strong magnet.

Yep! My daughter and I have made lots of these! Yes you do need a strong magnet.

Eta: I wouldn't use the huge magnets. I bought small super strong ones on Etsy.

They are not resin, they are to thick for that definitely the glass marbles or tile things. They are flat on the back !
