Little "written" glas stones...

Everybody uses this little glas nuggets to make cool decorational stuff. I love them (and it is years ago sinced I made my own ones)! So I was infected again and I made some with writings. I found some clear and light blue glas nuggets (I found more but the rest was not transparent enough to see something through the glas).

I just put the glas nuggets on a printed script, marked the shape around the glas nuggets, cut the paper piece out and glued it under the nugget (I used a transparent gemstone glue pen which was really cheap ^^). Afterwards I added a layer of white acrylic paint and that was it.

I love this magnifying glass effect especially on this non readable old script ^^

Beside the old script I printed some writings in a bigger size and searched for some word I liked in it to put them in the center and therefore "magnify" them. The basic (if you are curious) is Goethes "Faust II" in german.

Phöbus´ Räder - Phoebus´ wheels

Mondes - of the moon

Stern an (Stern) - Star at (star)
Funken - spark

I think the little flaws in the glas make a special effect :)

Together with some more :)

Dämmerung - dwan / twilight
Erdgeboren - earth born (earthlings in the english translation I found)
Elfen - Elves

The can be put on magnets, on card, on gifts or collages... or just be used as they are. I like to make some with a special meaning for other persons.


  1. Lovely. These would make cool poetry magnets. Thanks for linking up to Sunday Art Therapy at Seeds on a Breeze.

  2. Sehr schön, vor allem die hellblauen find ich toll!

  3. very pretty aren't they! i love these too but have never made them :(

  4. I love these and have always wanted to make some. I am in need of some nice refrigerator magnets and I think this idea would work well.

    Sweet place you have here :)

    Kindly, ldh

  5. Thank you all :)

    I can't belive how easy they are to make. I think they would also be cool to be integrated in a mosaic...

    (but now I run out of suitable glas nuggets ^^)

  6. These are great! They're so creative and original...I love it!!

    Great job!

  7. These would make fantastic little magnets. Wish I had glass nuggets.

  8. I just love how the old script ones look. Thanks for linking to Craftastic Monday:)

  9. Thank you for coming back to A Crafty Soiree! I like how some are blue, normally I only see clear pebbles, fun! I also really like the writing and how it seems to be magnified under the pebbles. See you next week!
