Glass Crackled Gems

Glass Crackled Gems and CabochonsI love making my own colorful gems. It all started when I first made these glitter gems and then I made these DIY glass cracked gems. This time I wanted to do some Lisa Frank inspired glass crackled gems and you won’t believe how easy these are to make! These crackle gems are perfect for making your own jewelry or key chains. An awesome craft that both kids and adults can enjoy. These glass gems take only a few steps to make and it’s a great craft activity for all ages.
