First, preheat your oven to 500 degrees farenheit. Place the marbles you’ll be using on a baking tray.

Bake the tray of marbles for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, make a bowl of ice water.

After removing the tray from the oven, immediately dump the marbles into the ice water. You’ll see that the insides of the marbles will crack while the outsides stays the same.

Use one bead cap and one eye bin to make each necklace.

Place the eye pin inside the bead cap, and make sure the loop is on top. Trim the eye pin, but make sure there’s enough leftover wire so you can make a loop using pliers.

Put some E-6000 adhesive inside the bead cap. Don’t get it on anything else!

Let the adhesive dry.

Once it’s dry, you can add the ring to the eye pin and put your necklace cording or chain through. Now your beautiful cracked marble necklace is done!

If you want to go even further, experiment with different colors by using either nail polish or glitter to give your marbles that extra style. Enjoy!
