Druzy jewelry anyone?Who can resist the sparkle and beauty of an eye-catching druzy crystal pendant? If you love them as much as I do then I have a really fun and easy DIY project for you!
This past Christmas I needed a few small but thoughtful gifts for a a bunch of kids in a wide range of ages…I wanted to keep it simple and easy yet thoughtful on my part, but obviously something cool and fun for them to receive! The age range of kids were anywhere from 3 to 18 years old…what do you buy for them!? You’re drawing a blank too,RIGHT? Well,I got to thinking…What about GEODES?
Not just any geodes…how about crack your own million year old, rock like-geodes! This was clearly the answer to my gift dilemma! The kids,as they opened their gifts,were all pretty much stumped as to why they were getting a rock as gift!!! I honestly think that their faces when they opened a “rock” was just about as priceless as when they cracked them open to discover the unbelievable beauty of what was inside!
I guess I should make a small disclaimer before I go any further….all of my geodes came from my Aunt Jean and Uncle Jim Beys Rock Shop !I’ve been familiar with geodes pretty much my entire life.I always thought about giving them as gifts,but never got around to it until now! If you’re interested in your very own Moroccan or Mexican geodes they are available here on their website. They range in price from $2.00 to $35.00 each. They make great gifts! 🙂
To say the least the kids-of all ages-LOVED them! Success!
What about the jewelry? Almost there… As much as everyone loved their new gifts…I looked at the pieces of sparkling crystals and with the creative wheels in my head starting to spin and immediately envisioned jewelry! The boys however,were happy with putting their geodes in the fish tank or perching a dinosaur on top of it….but the girls,especially the teens,and I were thinking jewelry!
Here’s the fun part…
- Small pendant size pieces of geodes (whatever is comfortable size to wear)
- polymer clay/white -softened
- eye pins
- gold/silver leaf and adhesive
- paint brush
