Here is yet another interesting product, one that I hope to try very soon, possibly this weekend if the stars align correctly! It’s a two-part epoxy resin adhesive product, called Ferido Formula x1, that can be used for jewelry such as creating faux stones. It looks kind of like clay that comes in two different packages and you kneed them together. According to the instructions, once you mix them together completely, you can shape them (such as create a cab shaped faux stone) and/or you can insert crystals or stones into the resin before it cures. It is supposed to stick to materials such as metal, glass, wood, plastic, cement, and even brick.

Fire Mountain Gems & Beads currently carries it in 15 different colors, and the packages of Ferido include 50 grams of the resin (25 grams of each of the two part epoxy) plus gloves (used to protect your hands while working with it) and 10 assorted CRYSTALLIZED™ – Swarovski Elements chatons that you can stick into it before it cures. One package costs a little over $20.
