Join author, artist and teacher, Melissa Cable, and learn how to create a modern-day snow globe; a lens to your past, or an eye to your future.

Watch Melissa show you step-by-step how to create a pendant with an oil-and-object-filled globe as its centerpiece. Work with Faux Boneā„¢ to create a pendant base, learning to saw, drill, file, and color this versatile material.

See how to create your own story on the surface of your pendant through stamps, embedded objects, or engraved markings. Discover how to use heat-forming acrylic to create globe domes and metalwork to create globe frames and bales.

Skills and techniques shown for flat metal sheet can be substituted with metal clay, polymer clay, wood or other materials, allowing you to customize the project to fit your design and material preferences.

Learn to assemble the piece with screws, bolts, and nuts and then fill it with oil, creating a pendant with unique movement and mystery.
