Default Anyone know how to make marble pendants?

I bought my daughter one of these at a local boutique but I would like to know how to make them - a nice addition to my jewelry business:

I have been doing a lot of these magnets and this is what I found out through lots of trial and help from another woman at Etsy. I would wrap your picture in packing tape and use epoxy glue instead of the glue they used (I just don't think it is strong enough) in that tutorial to glue the magnet to the glass gem. I would also put a piece of card stock between you pic and your magnet or your magnet will bleed through the pic. I would not use e6000. Your pic will look good at first but after a day or so when it is dry the e6000 will have eaten through your tape and distorted your picture. If you don't put tape on the pic then the epoxy will distort the pic too.

If you don't mind sharing, what kind of epoxy is best to use? I was going to make some of these magnets with pics of the kids for Mother's Day for my mom.

I can tell you a no solder method. Please understand that it will not be as durable as soldered pendent.

Supply list:
1. Glass Cabachon or pebbles - (get them from a local dollar store - they come in a small sack)
2. JudiKin Diamond Glaze - a type of glue (get it online or scrapbook store)
3. Aluminum Foil - (get it from a hardware store less than 3 dollars per roll or to get an idea go to findtape.com look up item number JVCC AF20 Aluminum Foil Tape - this is you wide tape)
4. silver tape (try memory glass aluminum foil tape - this is your skinny tape)
5. Your images.

Cut your image to fit the flat side of your glass cabs - glue it with diamond glaze - let dry. Cut your aluminum foil (your wide tape) slightly larger than your cab. Cover the backside of your cab and burnish really well (just smooth it down really well with a burnisher). Now cut a strip of your skinny tape about the circumference and tape around your cab - make sure to overlap your bottom tape. You can glue your bail or findings with E6000. Just try it - you'll get similar look as soldered pendent with only half the work. If you burnish you piece really well - it should be waterproof but not scratchproof. Good Luck.
