Crystal Creations

I know this is the jewellery making equivalent of painting by numbers but I do love using these sparkly crystal chatons. It's a great way to play with colour and it's SSSO easy on my hands which start to hurt really quickly now.

So pretty; I like the pair of rings and didn't know that you could make rings like that from crystal clay.

Oh Mooch, I don't make the rings Embarassed I buy the blanks. Like I said, it's painting by numbers. Buy blank, mix clay, press on shiney things, wait to set then rub with soft cloth. I'm half ashamed to show them Laughing but they are selling at work really well compared to my other jewellery.

They are verrrrry sparkly!! I like the more simple ones myself, so the purple one or those 3 at the bottom would be for me - but loving all the bling and how adaptable it all is. You're definitely on to something there arent you!

Thanks guys. Now I just need to pay extra extra attention to getting the clay smooth. I always think I've done a good job on that until I see the super macro photos which seem to show up flaws my eyes just don't see cyclops
