This bracelet is the perfect showcase for the new Ori Crystals. They just sparkle and I love the donut shape!
It was inspired by this Sidney Evan bracelet I recently viewed. His bracelet features gemstones and a diamond encrusted gold elephant. His bracelet costs over $1200 Euros….and I did notice it is strung on elastic!
So I thought why not make one myself…..for under $20 dollars! Believe it or not in my stash I discovered three elephants. I often buy old jewelry and break it up for the interesting components.
I pulled out some crystal flat backs and used our new Quick Grip glue to apply them to my plain elephant.
Once again, I have to say that the Quick Grip worked perfectly!
All I had left to do was string my teal ori crystals onto elastic with the elephant and I was done!
Ori Crystals are going to make your projects so affordable!
My Ori Crystal necklace has a pendant I made using another crystal option!
This is just one of several machine cut crystals that you can order from John Bead. It already has a pre-drilled hole, so it is super simple to string.
I simply found an image I loved (postcard) and glued it to the flat crystal drop back.
The crystals I strung include: Ori Crystal Donut – Silver Metallic 10×14
Ori Crystal Donut – Jet 10x14mm and I also used some smaller Jet round rich cut 10mm to complete my necklace. The hook and loop clasp is pewter.
You’ll love the entire Ori Crystal range!
I hope you have an opportunity to work with these new crystals soon!
