Lorelei Hill Eurto came across some unusual and pretty resin baubles shopping Michael's craft stores, and decided to have a little impromptu challenge: create a design using the resin bauble sliders and we'll blog hop!
The resin baubles are sliders, four to a component, and they not only shimmer, but color change too.
I have had so much FUN with this, enjoying my jewelry making with a light heart. As I looked at the baubles, I thought of summer, blowing bubbles, being a little girl and loving "dress up" glamour, and most of all -- I thought of goodness.
I thought of Glinda, the Good Witch :)
I was excited to work with my resin also, and as I browsed the Good Witch images for my new Lisa Pavelka resin and UV light pendants, I discovered the reason WHY the baubles reminded me of Glinda, the Good Witch:
Of course, Glinda the Good Witch arrives in pretty, shimmery, color changing baubles/ bubbles!
I created a Glinda Good Witch resin pendant, and strung AB quartz crystal and hessanite garnet to form a charm holder. For a little real magic, I wrapped a peach AB crystal wand and added a Swarovski moon. I also decided to create quartz crystal wand earrings too.
Thank you, Lorelei for a wonderful challenge! I had a blast :)
