I've been busy this past week preparing bezels and crystals for resin. It was great fun selecting items to be used. While searching for embellishments to use, I found things I had forgotten I had so it was fun re-discovering them again. Two of the chandelier crystals are vintage, the other two I purchased at a hardware store. Deryn Mentock provided wonderful instruction in her online class, Alchemy of Objects, on putting images on crystals and setting them with resin. I was happy with the results. The final step is the resin and then it's just waiting for the resin to set. At this point, I'm not sure how they will be incorporated in my jewelry designs......but I look forward to the time when my creativity kicks in and they become part of my design.
Once again, Deryn Mentock has provided a fun online class.....instructional and full of great tips that you can use in your other jewelry projects. You can still register for Boho Bliss until May 11, 2015. Check out Something Sublime to find about this class and others that she offers online and in person. You can also click on the icon on the right that will take you to your bliss!!! Until then......what's your bliss?
but......I finally finished four bezels with resin.
I enjoyed the creative process of just deciding what elements I wanted to use in the bezels.....part of a rhinestone bracelet.....an old earring....vintage key. Now I need to decide how I want to incorporate them in a jewelry design.....so I may just let them stare at me for awhile till an idea comes to me. In the meantime.....happy creating!
