Shine Bright Like a Concrete Diamond

A few weeks ago I stumbled upon a concrete diamond diy from A Merry Mishap via Pinterest. While most of the time I stare in awe at the prettiness of a diy on my screen I rarely feel like attempting the task on my own... however, these little beauties were different. The moment I saw them I knew they had to be mine. I'm not going to lie, they were a little more involved and time consuming than I thought, but I couldn't be more thrilled with the results. There are a few extra tips in the comment section of AMM which I found to be super helpful. I also found this blog that was super detailed with the gem making procedure. I'm currently in the process of making a third set out of gems using a foam core mold which I think is working out the best so far. As a side note I printed the template in a few sizes to create a nice variety which I highly recommend! So what do you think??
