Idle Wednesday

Rose Quartz, Fluorite, and Amethyst, Oh My!

This week I made a looong necklace, not that you can tell from the pictures! How do you like my new necklace stand??
The cool thing about the necklace is that while it does have a clasp, it's not used for clasping the necklace together. It is a single long loop, using a toggle clasp as part of the pendant. I liked the Amethyst and Fluorite so much that next weeks is going to have the some of the same beads, in a different style.
I started making molds today from "Amazing Mold Putty" it's relatively easy to mix, and I'm really enjoying it! I'm teaching myself the best way to make the molds, how best to make the finished project from them, and how to mix the polymer clays to make great colors, and how to use them in my projects. More to come on that front!

I love this necklace. Rose quarts and amethyst look so good together. Your stand is pretty nice too.
