Hi Gingersnap,

Start by getting a food storage container and place Safe-D-Clay on the bottom about a 1/4 inch thick. Press your gems into the clay so that almost all of the back side is embedded in the clay. Mix up some CopyFlex and pour over all the beads and allow to cure. This is a quick and easy way to make a multi cavity mold of a variety of gems at one time.

Hope This Helps,
