Beautiful Beaded Cross Pattern

With a dab of jewelry resin and a handful of gemstones, what began as a simple silver cross charm will turn into a bold statement piece. Putting a colorful twist on a traditional shape, the Beautiful Beaded Cross Pattern calls for natural chip stones in many colors. Making jewelry with resin is a blast because the chip placement is entirely up to the creator. You can play with colors and textures, but be careful: you only have until the resin sets to get everything just right. Once you string this charm on a necklace, it makes a lovely gift for baptisms, confirmations, and other Christian religious ceremonies, and it can be a precious piece of Easter jewelry.

This is an incredibly easy project that creates a beautiful piece of jewelry. I make jewelry and have tons of real gemstone chips. Amethyst , peridot, citrine, Rose Quartz, etc. they would make a very pretty item. It's so easy and there are dozens of forms available. Round, square, triangular, you name it.
