This Week's Project: Crystal Extravaganza

Is it possible to go overboard when it comes to crystals? If one gives you a happy feeling, how do you feel wearing 23 crystals? 23 times happier than without them? You never know!!

I personally don't think I went overboard with crystals in this design using the "new" econoflex (from softflex) steel blue bead wire. I also found these turquoise 3/16" anodized aluminum jump rings yesterday and didn't plan to use them here, but I believe it was meant to be!

I wore this to a family function today and while I loved the colors and the sparkliness, I am not completely sold on the design. If I end up back at the drawing board, I'll let you know.

I hope you are all getting the opportunity to craft this weekend!! Let's make the most of a little bit of free time!!

Lisa, I LOVE the colors in this, so bright, fun! I do like the center cluster you have created for the focal point......I've also just purchased some of those great alum rings in colors, but haven't used any yet. Great piece! Teri

Definitely not. I don't think it is going overboard if you use plenty of colorful crystals. It's fun and so summery. Pearl
