I've been working to perfect my technique with the crystal press. Love the shape, but had some trouble in the beginning.
What have you done with your crystal press? I'd love to see.

Thanks Ginger. They're fun to wear too.
Joy - where do I see Diana's beads?

Really nice beads Shelly! I love the animal prints in this shape.
This is my favorite set that I have done so far. I call them fire crystals:

Lizajayne, those are really great! Thanks for showing them!

Very nice Shelly! love the animal prints. I have yet to perfect that and encasing eludes me still.
Done with red enamel not baking soda.
Have a great day.

All of these gorgeous crystals are just making me want that press! Lovely work!

It's one of my favorite presses for sure. You all have done a beautiful job.
It looks great with the new silver glasses.:)

Oooh Pat, I love the second set the most. What glass is that?

I haven't tried the zebra technique yet. I love it in the crystal press! Nice job :clap: ,I'm going to have to give it a try. The crystal press is what made me finally work until I learned encasing properly. I've always loved the look of encased crystals and I think I've finally got it!

Thanks for posting!

I am press impaired - but I sure love what you guys are doing! :)

Wow those are great beads. Looks like I will have to bite the bullet and try encasing again......I am just so bad at it.....too impatient and always end up melting the core into the clear....
