InspirationFX: Orbits


Orbits

by: Dwyn Tomlinson

Here’s a fun little pendant – or make two and make earrings – it’s not that big!

The
centre stone needs to be 8 mm – I used an 8 mm Margarita in Crystal AB.
Even though it has a centre hole – I find that it really doesn’t show
much, due to the sparkliness of it!

The accompanying planets are PP17 Swarovski Chatons, in Blue Zircon, and we have lots of other pretty colours too.

Drop
a wee drop of Hypo-tube cement into the centre cup and the surrounding
cups, and drop the bead/stones into place. Positioning them is easiest
if you use the Crystal Katana, which has lo-tack wax tip. Use the tip to
pick up the stones, and then press into the glue. They come off the wax
and stick to the glue. 

Easy!
