    Are those drops colorful black opals...

    Nope! They are KMO, Kitchen Made Opal or... Kyra Made Opal ;-))

    After the rather successful "repair" of my repouss cuff bracelet with tinfoil, I keep on using this material for some kyratisations ;-)

    The earrings were lacking one teardrop faux pearl.

    As I couldn't find online a convenient replacement I went for this trick!

    The pressed crinckled foil was pierced with a needle, colored with permanent markers and coated with UV curing resin.

    Done in half an hour
    Immediately wearable
    Rather satisfying result ;-)

    Happy to entertain those of you who missed my kyratisations :-D

      Oh la la... Ô..Ô
      You were all so kind in commenting about my "bricolage"!!!

      Gillian, many thanks for your brilliant comment :-)

      Dear Phil, thank you for your enthusiastic, magic words!

      Rose, Judy! You are the most amazing CW friends :-)) THANK YOU :-D

      Gary, thank you for your whole comment, the yellow jackets have legitim asks, but it is a pity the hooligan's victims (burnt cars, destroyed shops, jobs lost because of the mess) aren't heard...

      Ms.CrystalShip, aww, it was only necessity and impatience which led me to this kyratisation ;-) Thank you!

      Hi Valentino! So happy to see you :-)
      The mess with CW notifications, impossibility to add posts to our collection still keeps me away... Coming only from time to time... Thank you for your lovely comment!

      Gillian... I saw... It is hopeless... Taking all this time to post common pieces instead of searching... Simply ignore her, the admins don't bother maintaining interest in CW, it seems :-/

      Themuse... If I recorded my kyratisations on videos... Viewers would have to listen to all bad words and curse going with them, ;-))))
      Thank you!

      Pebble, THANKS! My new motto is "Need one? Try to make one!" ;-)

      Haha, Sue! I KNEW you'd knew ;-)
      My "how to" channel is in fact here... on Show and Tell ;-))
      Thank you for your always kind and funny comments on my kyratisations!
    14. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 5 years ago
      Ahhh! Glad I brought a smile to you ;) Hey, now that I am here I have a question for you... If I remember correctly, I used to dip my turquoise and silver in the cleaning liquid (don't remember the brand but think it's all pretty much the same) but I don't recall it having any effect on my turquoise and I'm thinking about dipping some again. I like my silver to shine and sometimes a silver cloth just isn't enough. One of my necklaces is "liquid silver" and I'm a little concerned about the thread or sinew (?) that was used. Do you think it would damage it? I know I can't put opals or pearls in it and some I just might use it with a q-tip instead of dipping, it I might just q-tip whatever I'm going to wear at the time... I'll probably get a lot of flack for this but it's all good!

      Hi Kyra... Could you please take a peek at this mascara? I'm thinking you may know of it to help this person.

      And I did do a quick dip on some of my pieces and love the way they came out! The patina is still there and parts I wanted to shine up a bit did exactly that!
    16. kyratango kyratango, 5 years ago
      Oohh, Sue, glad you dared to dip your liquid silver, I think it is the only way to clean that!
      I use a kind of windex, with ammonia... it even works well on pearls, but I only spray and rinse, not soak fragile pieces :-D
      I answered on the mascara post with what I found about Lanthéric...
    17. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 5 years ago
      Awesome! Thanks for looking at the piece for the other member! For a while here, they stopped making the windex with ammonia, but it's back. If I didn't spray and rinse like you do too, I would put a few drops of liquid dish soap, a few sprays of the Windex and warm water. Then just let it sit, that was when it was all silver. I found it did wonders for most but I've got a few pieces that it just didn't do the trick. A quick dip or 2 and rinse and dry makes it just like I wanted!
