I already know.
I went way, way, way overboard with this necklace.
I am sharing it with you because this is what happens when you experiment with a new medium and that new medium is resin clay.
My idea was a simple one to start. Fill some bottle cap style components with the clay.
I happily made my clay gold by brushing gold Pearl Ex across the surface.
Then I stamped my initials into the clay with rubber stamps and black StazOn ink. I should have stopped right here.
But the ink was still wet and I wanted to see if Pearl Ex would cling to it. It did. The pink Pearl-Ex made my black look purple.
Then I added some Preciosa crystals. I see space...I fill it.
Since I was already dabbling, I pulled out this metal embossing tool and added some interesting pattern to the clay surface.
Could I stop??? No, having too much fun at this point. In for a penny they say...
I added some extra colour with my Sharpie glitter marker.
Last but not least, after my clay cured overnight I just had to pour some Jewelry Resin into the recessed areas.....
When you go overboard...sometimes you just have to try everything!
