Unexpected Jewels
by Judy Larson
You never know when you might come across something that was never intended for jewelry, but would be perfect for something you are or will be making. 
Instructions
My daughter gave me one of her extra bags of Beta Jewels she uses in her fish tank. The edges of these multi-sized glass jewels, which come in a variety of colors, are not sharp like chips but softly rounded.

Because the jewels are transparent, light reflects off the shiny silver backing of these bezel settings and bounces around and through the the jewels. The smaller jewels, which look almost like green bubbles, were used in these small bezels. Tucking a few small beads among the jewels adds interest. Adding clear resin holds everything in place.   
IDEA: I love all the colors the Beta Jewels come in. Make a Shamrock shape bezel for the green, Wave for the blue, Marquis shape for the purple, and Diamond for the clear jewels. For more interest, make the same shape bezel smaller and taller and place inside the larger bezel. Fill both. The extra wall will make the jewels sparkle even more.
