Get inspired by Swarovski design team's limitless imagination. Magical project ideas bring a new dimension to simple techniques.

Version 1

STEP 1
Mix Ceralun clay, black per instructions. On a non-stick surface, lightly coated with oil or balm, roll out 1/4 inch thick sheet of clay large enough to cover USB port.
STEP 2
With an Exact-O knife cut out the size of USB stick. Stick clay rectangle to one side of the USB Stick. Put to the side excess clay.
STEP 3
Embellish USB Stick using tweezers or wax stick. Start pattern by placing Buddha, moon and stars to be embedded. Push far enough into clay to cover girdle of stone. Start adding Silver Night Chatons, one by one, alternating between PP21, 18 and 12 until your design is completely filled.

Tip: I tend to starting filling space from inside out and outside edge in working till they meet. I like to add a clean line of stones on the outside edge to make design look clean and finished.
STEP 4
Using an alcohol wipe clean any residue left behind on the stone by you handling. This needs to be done now. The stone might look clean but once you wipe it up you realize how much residue was left behind. Once the clay cures there will be no way to get off any residue. Put to the side and let cure undisturbed 24 hours.

Tip: When using black clay be careful not to get any wipe fibers into the clay.
