In this video, I use my Gryphon Gryphette Glass Grinder, to arch the top edge of a microscope slide (also known as memory glass), to give my soldered glass pendant necklaces a more interesting shape. You could use a Dremel with diamond bit and bowl of water, if you don’t have a glass grinder.
The grinder I use in this video is called a Gryphon Gryphette, and it’s a great tool for evening out a jagged edge or bad cut on a piece of memory glass. I got this neat little grinder because I haven’t mastered the skill of making a nice straight cut with a glass cutter. (Just in case you are wondering why I haven’t made a glass cutting video yet!)
Using the glass grinder helps me salvage many a glass slide for my soldered glass pendants. I simply even up the top edge of two cut pieces, until I have a matched pair . I’ve also made a video of how to achieve this with a cordless Dremel. (See related posts in the sidebar).
Do you have a glass grinder? What brand do you like? Let me know in the comments below!
