Experimenting With Some New Materials

In March I had mentioned some new materials that I was going to do some experimenting with.  Well, it has been a while, but I do finally have a couple of pictures to show you of one of them.  It is a substance called epoxy clay, and I'm so excited to use it more.  It seems that the possibilities are endless.  I made this pair of bobby pins with a blue epoxy clay, some crystal chatons, and beads.  I love the way they came out.

I also experimented with a ring kit.  I hand-set each of the crystal chatons into the clay, which holds them in place when it dries.  For a first run, I think it turned out pretty well.  I love the way it shines in the light.

I think my next project with the clay, will be a pair of post earrings with crystal chatons.  I think they would be a fun little addition.

Thanks for stopping by,
