 I curious to know if anyone else here has used it. I thought I would pop in here and start a discussion.
 Here's some of my work.  http://www.flickr.com/photos/drcraze/show/
If you have any questions on how these are made I would be happy to answer.

Very nice!  And the inclusions are great too, as well as your larger items.  Good stuff for guy-jewelery too.

...How heavy are they?
...Do you use something like Quikrete or stonecraft mixes, or what?  ...And have you ever tried hypertufa?
...For very smooth items like these, do you use HDPE or silicone molds, or something else really smooth?

Have you ever tried doing mixed media with the concrete using polymer clay, clear resins that're inset, etc, etc.??

P.S.  You'll get a lot more views by posting an actual image or two in this message. Grin  And you can post images after you've made at least 10 posts/replies/etc (of any kind, anywhere on craftster.org).
And to get the ball rolling, you might want to post in the Completed Projects board for Jewelry & Trinkets first since more people read that sub-board than this one (or even post in More Art, Less Craft, or Home Sweet Home for the home dec things, or other boards).

The pendants are very lightweight and are made from a personal blend of cement, sand, and calcium carbonate powder mixed with crushed glass. Yes I do use custom molds then the pendants are ground and polished. Right now I am experimenting with PMClay making inlays for some of my home furnishings.
