Tape off area you don't want etched and apply thick layer of etching cream.

Wait 15 minutes and then rinse cream away under faucet.  Make sure to clean stencils well.

Find area of paper you want as background.  Trace pendant and cut out paper for backing.  Using double sided paper gives the back of your pendant a pretty, finished look.

Use your favorite decoupage medium to adhere backing to tile.

When that is dry, sand edges to even things up a bit.

Seal paper backing with your favorite medium.  I love the antique Mod Podge.  Apply 2-3 coats, allowing 30 minutes dry time between each.

Adhere pendant bail using E6000 or other industrial strength adhesive.

Let your bail set overnight and add your chain to finish!

I love them!  I made one for my grandma, mom and sister.  What a cool way to add a special touch to customize glass tile pendants.  Use a meaningful photo instead of scrapbook paper as an alternative.  Make them as wedding/anniversary gifts with the couple's wedding date!  The possibilities are endless.
