*crystal balls*


.... actually not really,
they are not as 3D as a ball...
but surely they are crystal clear...

after many unsuccessful trials,
many brass plates, cabochon, scraps went astrayed,
two came out *alright*.


i used two different types of *crystal-ball-makers*:
one is diamond glaze and the other is 3D crystal lacquer.
i find the latter one easier to manage (for a dummy like me) and it creates less bubbles.

these two charms are only *alright* because there are a few bubbles (the bubbles are quite stubborn and wouldn't go away even when i poked them with needles!) and cracks along the edge....
but i am quite happy already... at least i am getting there!

i will be adding a few charms to each and turn them into necklaces for myself...
