my friend sent me a photo of this really cute key chain made of glass with a small hand-drawn image inside it. here's the link to the photo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/vintage_finds/206035429/

all i know is that, the thin piece of paper is melted with the translucent glass. then the glass is smoothened out, and shaped accdg to desire.

any info, pls? thanks!

Hi Tammy welcome,
it would be nice and could be helpful if you'd adjust your profile to some more information - thank you!

Are you really sure it is glass please?

How about the acrylic/plexi version?

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

It can't be paper as that would vaporise and probably create small bubbles. The text could be a transfer print. Alternatively it is just glued together.
