I swear, I saw the same thing but I didn’t think for a minute anyone else here did. I loved your comment when I saw it! Charge your crystals and rock on. Hope is not lost! Some of these aren’t gems and crystals at all (for example there are polished abalone shells, metals and fire polished glasswork featured in the video).
Charge your crystals and rock on shirt
It starts out as a raw rock type thing, then you heat it and the crystals form under the surface, then you pull it out and it’s different every time. Also, you can even re-melt it if you thought it came out bad, so I hear. Charge your crystals and rock on. Actually, many of these are not rare, but they are beautiful!! You can find some of these beautiful stones for great prices at your local crystal stores!! I had an aunt and uncle who were rock hounds and they’d always give us jewelry made out of the rocks they’d find; I always found it fascinating. Forget the invention of Science Fiction. Mother Nature invented it right there!! Are you absolutely sure you want to destroy all of this?!?! If not, then better start to make some changes today. Not gems/crystals, opals & shells are actually categorized as mineraloids. And 3 of these were artificially created/altered. The more you know!
Be cool with it!
No micro plastics!! Please no more!! Think about it this way: pollutants to make plastic, glitter is made from plastic, glitter gets in our water system, it gets in the ocean, it’s consumed by sea animals, we eat sea animals, we eat them, plastics in our system, we get sick; cancer. There are so many other ways to express your artistic talents. Please, not at the expense of the planet. Bored Panda stop promoting this crap!
What happens when someone doesn’t want it anymore? Think about where it would end up. Think about the mess and leftover materials that doesn’t make it into the piece. Also, think about what resin is too, Ryan. Its all plastic, its all not good. I doubt this would pose nearly the same level of concern as most microplastic since it’s not free floating. Even if the piece were trashed, it’s stuck within the resin, and therefore should not pose nearly the same sort of danger. Mind you, I absolutely agree that if the artist isn’t already doing so, they should make use of eco-glitter. However, we have no idea what kind of glitter this artist uses, they may already obly use eco glutter, so there’s no reason to demand Bored Panda stop promoting this. Heck, even if she’s using regular glitter, it’s still beautiful and should be showcased. It is simply an opportunity to educate others on switching to eco-friendly, biodegradable glitter for art and other projects!
