Rings & Things just ran a design challenge with several of our Blog Partners. Look what they made!
(Note added on March 30, 2011: also see our next design challenge with brushed copper beads!)
We sent our crafty guinea pigs some packages of Rings & Things exclusive new items: glass bezels and glass tiles.
Krissi Sandvik used these glass findings to frame tiny reproductions of her own paintings:
Armored Hearts came up with the inspiration of using up old beads that were lying around the workshop. They make some really fun patterned designs in resin…

Suebeads made this magnet set with Tim Coffey special paper:
Courtney Breul commented, “Loved the bezels, but the clear back can be difficult. You can see the bail.” (So consider covering it up with an image placed inside.) This concern didn’t stop Courtney from making all of these great pendants:
Mouse immersed some metal charms in resin on glass bezels…
…as well as painting unique designs on paper that she resin-ated onto the back of glass tiles.
She’s also contemplating an experiment where she’ll fuse metal clay onto these!
Faye Hadfield made, among other items, this cute Mom gift for her daughter:
