InspirationFX: Eclipse


by: Dwyn Tomlinson

Inspired by the recent "Bloodmoon" - the eclipse of the moon - from a 
pale silver to a haunting amber shade - these dazzling bracelet features 
an ombre of blues and ambers - but don't stop there! So fun and easy - 
you'll want to make more!

Arrange your stones in the order that you'd like to use, and then 
position them one at a time in the cup, and fold the prongs down over 
the stone to secure. It is easiest if you use something wide and flat - 
the side of a butterknife is perfect - I used the wide, flat handle of 
my tweezers.

 Protip: If you have trouble getting the stone to stay flat 
while you are holding it and bending the first prong down, put a tiny 
amount of well-kneaded polymer clay into the cup to help steady the 
stone and keep it level. Once the prongs are in place - you won't see it 
at all.
