... at least I thought I wouldn't do anything with a galaxy print or pattern until I started to paint glass cabochons with nailpolish. Suddenly I had that weird idea to try a galaxy design and I couldn't stop after that.
Galaxies everywhere!



My favorite so far:


And another nailpolish project: a new choker ^^

These are absolutely beautiful. Would you mind sharing how you got the galaxy effect? It's okay if you'd rather not. The necklace you posted is also lovely! Hmm....I do have a ton of nail polish! I might have to play with this too, it looks like fun.

These turned out quite beautiful. I love the galaxy thing that's happening right now but it's not often it's done well. Your necklaces instantly read as galaxy.

Thank you =)

I've been thinking about writing a tutorial for these, but this might take some time.
I use clear glass cabochons and paint them from the backside, starting with the highlights and finishing with the background, but I guess it's easier to explain with progress pictures.

i was going to ask who your supplier for bezels is? they're lovely and set off the cabochons so well.
I'll PM you in a minute Wink
