After I made these, I bought some metallic gold paint and they look great and less childish/the macrame doesn't help. But they're fun to make and much cheaper if you're looking for some center bead for a bracelet.

I was in a hurry to do something with these gems so I used a bunch of macrame chords I had to create sliding bracelets.

The eye pins did fall out when tugging the bracelet so I used E600 by dipping the eye pin in it and back in the clay (after baking) let it set and it's not a problem anymore.

What a great resource when you don't have the perfect thing already in your stash. Marvellous.

thank you both. I have noticed all the resin crafts on this forum too and I'm thinking that it would be another great way to improvise when you don't feel like shelling out the cash for pre made ones at jewelry stores.
