Mood jewelery reference material


#1

I was wondering if anyone could help me with this project? I would
like to know where to find info about the making of mood jewelery. I
need all the basic steps, supplies needed and where to find them. I
would like to make larger pieces and I am not sure what sort of
setting to use, and how to go about sealing the cabs, etc. I would
appreciate any reference material or guides you can suggest.

Hi, Phyllis,

I would like to know where to find info about the making of mood
jewelery. I need all the basic steps, supplies needed and where to
find them. 

If you mean the material that changes color with temperature (skin
temp being correlated to some moods) you can buy
temperature-sensitive liquid crystal sheets at Edmund Scientific.

Hi folks…

This stuff comes in all different temperature change ratings, so for
mood stuff ya hafta have material that works within the few degrees
of body temp variances humans have…

Ya might do a google on mood rings for lead…a number of outfits
sell them as novelty jewelry…Fire Mt. and Oriental Trading for a
couple… Maybe can find the tech spec for the material…

Fire Mt sells nickel plated rings for about 50 cents a piece last I
saw…

I have use Mirage beads which are fun and very pretty in jewelry.
Here is a site that you can look to see what they are like. I think
this is what you are asking about. If you find any other interesting
things made out of this material, let us all know.
