First time user of Art Clay Silver. My spice and I found a bunch of garnets in Idaho on our vacation and I want to make some mementos of our wonderful time there.

I had to learn a new craft to do it though and this one could break the bank, it's so fun.

The one with 5 stones is the second try and uses tumbled garnets. The one with three stones has raw garnets. By "raw" I mean not tumbled, polished or anything. They were just dug out of the ground and washed. I like the look of them in my ring because they match my skill level in the medium - primitive!

Thank you, my crafty friends!

I also consider it a win that I didn't set my hair on fire.
