Here are the results of the rings I made over the weekend. And ta-daaaaaa, the anticipated amethyst crystal cluster that I've successfully turned into a ring! Yes! Mission complete! After spending a solid 15 minutes reading the labels of every super glue in sight at Bunnings and finding an old watch battery, I've managed to turn this $8 market steal into my very own cluster ring. And at a hell-lot cheaper than the designer $180-250+ ones I've seen around. Literally a "knock-out" piece, I'm sure a swing to the head will cause considerable damage in the unlikely event I get into a catfight or have to defend myself from an intruder. I hereby strongly emphasize the word "unlikely" and actually would rather replace it with "hypothetical" haha. Though, who said either of the two is a laughing matter. I'll also take back "haha".
Back to the topic! - I am rather pleased with the result of my cluster ring and is looking forward to wearing it with minimal or yet no other jewellery/accessories at all.
Clear Quartz crystal ring! Wore this darling today and I couldn't help but stare at it on the way home.
How refreshing is this aqua colour! The size is great too for everyday.
Ring mix! BOOM!
I told you I kind of went "ring crazy". These red desert colour stones are such a great size and their shape and textures make them look quite organic and earthy don't you think? Something different to the other luminous crystal stones. I think my new favourites are the smaller purple ones. You can't help but study the bands of colour and I'm growing quite fond of the purple white-tipped one in particular.
My sister and I happened to find our old gemstone collection we had when we were kids. There was this gemstone pit in Darling Harbour where you could purchase see-through bags of different sizes and then fill up the bag with whatever stones that took your fancy. It was literally like a ball-pit, but replace those primary-coloured balls with gemstones!! CRAZYYY! We would be there for an hour or so, crouching in our denim overalls carefully scouring through the pit in search for a "pretty stone" and than empty our bags as soon as we got home, choose our favourites or swap one for another! I don't think that place is there anymore... maybe they ran out of stones? If it was, I'll be there in flash - chucking an Asian-squat trying to fill 5 see-through bags instead of just one. Oh how your childhood still manages to catch up with you?! Nothing's changed! hehe
I'm seriously thinking of making a whole bunch rings and start selling them?! Yay, or nay?!
