Mosaic Magic: Crafting Your Own Stunning Jewellery

Mosaic Magic: Crafting Your Own Stunning Jewellery

 

Making mosaic jewellery is super easy and looks amazing! You can match your jewellery with your favourite clothes and even make cool, affordable gifts that people will love because you made them. Just stick the small tiles on a pendant, add some grout, and put on the necklace – it's that simple!

 

Project Instructions

 

 

Materials

 

 

Steps

 

1. Choose Your Materials

 

Your choice of materials is wide and varied. Select from Ceramic Tiny Tiles, Millefiori, Beads, glass or anything that can be cut down small enough to fit the pendant.


2. Adhere The Tiles

 

You will need a pair of tweezers to position your tiles. Tiny tiles are so small that you rarely need to cut them, but if you do you can use a pair of two wheeled nippers.

 

We use E6000 adhesive to adhere the tiles, it is fast drying and tacky so it holds the tiny tiles in place. You could also use Weldbond adhesive or other clear drying adhesive.

 

3. Grouting

 

When grouting, always wear gloves, as the grout will dry your hands out. Mix a small amount of powdered grout with water, it is easier to grout the pendant if the grout is drier than normal. Once mixed, place a small amount of grout onto your tiles and rub it into the gaps between them. Once you have covered the entire mosaic, scrape off the excess and let it dry. We use baby wipes to clean the grout off the tiles, they are moist so you don't need to add water. Buff the pendant to finish the clean up.
