That is very vague Sierra. Did you see a particular pendant somewhere that inspired you? Or a certain material that you wanted to try?

First, decide what type of necklace you want - chain? leather? cord?
Second, decide if you want the pendant to be big and chunky, or smaller and more delicate.
Third, decide what you want to make it of - clay? beads? stone? wire? glass? a combination?
Then you get to decide what you want to make. And make it.

It all depends on what materials you want to use as to how to make the pendant. If you want to use beads/stones, then you could use wire to form the shape you want or to make a "cage" around a larger stone to hold it. You could use metallic thread to make a dangly beaded pendant. You could use clay to form animal pendants.

This isn't glass, but if you have some wire, you could make one of your shark teeth into a cool pendant. I put "Shark Tooth Pendant" into a Google image search and found this:

(Photo credit to the website here. I have not been on this site other than to borrow their photo so I have no idea what they are all about, but thought they should be given photo credit.)

I know I keep coming back to your shark teeth, but I think they are really cool.

There is a way to bleach them. You might look it up on the web about bleaching teeth, bones, and horns. Then get your folks to help you with it, if you want your shark teeth to be white.

Thanks for the post, Angela. It just gave me some great ideas for carving teeth from holly.

Varieties of pendants are their such as resins pendant, glass pendant, scrabble tile pendant, glass tile pedant, crystal pendant, diy pendant and many more. First decide which types of pendant you like and want to design.
