How to Make an Ombre Glitter Pendant Necklace
Any color of Sharpie marker will work. As you can see, I chose purple which is my friend’s favorite color.
The first step to making your ombre glitter necklace is to color a scrap of glitter paper with a sharpie marker. Color lightly at the top and darker at the bottom.
Make sure that you colored a large enough rectangle by placing the glass piece on top of the paper. You want the color to go past the edges of the glass piece.
Apply a large dollop of Glossy accents to the back, or flat side of the glass.
Lay the glass flat side down onto the colored glitter paper. Move the glass piece around just a bit to smooth out the Glossy Accents.
Don’t worry if the Glossy Accents presses outside the glass. Clean large clumps up with a cotton swab and allow it to dry.
Once dry, cut around the glass rectangle with a pair of scissors.
Apply a glue dot to the inside of the rectangle tray and press the ombre glass piece onto it.
Making the Monogram Charm
To make the monogram charm, I used a monogram letter charm and a small diamond charm and combined them with a jump ring.

Now all that is left to string the pendant and charm onto the necklace chain.
Doesn’t it look fantastic? Now, this Ombre Glitter Pendant Necklace is ready to give!
