truebluemeandyou: Hand Drawn Gem Chart and DIY Optical Illusion Gems. Reblogging because I just posted a wire diamond ring here, but I’ve seen shrink plastic and polymer clay “gems” paired with ring bases and as necklaces on Etsy. You can use the chart as a guide.

DIY Hand Drawn Gems for Inspiration from Emma Dajska on Flickr (high res at link). I paired it with one of my favorite posts: DIY Optical Illusion Wooden Gems from Fabric Paper Glue here.

DIY Optical Illusion Wooden Gems from Fabric Paper Glue here. You only need three colors of paint for each color of gem - white and black being two of them. Really good tutorial for mixing your shades of paint plus these wood rectangles are so cheap at Michaels.

DIY Easy Leather and Metal Geometric Necklace Tutorial by fabric paper glue here. These necklaces are based on one of my most popular jewelry DIYs I posted from fabric paper glue here. Her original tutorial is here. The necklaces are adjustable in length using knots and not jewelry closures.
