Glass Pendant
How should you put together a glass pendant like this?

I’ve been browsing some websites and I found a type of glass cabochon that I would really like to make. I already have the glass, kiln, and other materials to make purely glass pendants but I wanted to adhere a picture to the glass as well.

These are examples of what I’m talking about. I’m not sure if I should just glue the picture on or I fuse it into the glass in the kiln.

I’m not sure about the images on the first link which seem to be on top of the glass, but the second and third links just show a photo (or print/copy/magazine image/patterned paper, etc) glued to the back side of the glass.
Those are done fairly commonly these days with purchased glass “pebbles” or various other flat-backed glass shapes (usually with E-6000 glue). They’re often made into magnets as well.

Here are some lessons/photos, etc.:

Some people also use a 2-part epoxy resin over the image or in a cell/bezel of some kind, rather than using glass, to create a similar look for jewelry, etc.

(You wouldn’t be able to put a photograph in your kiln because paper will burn at about 450 F, and many of the paper’s coatings could burn at even lower temps.)
