Hi! Are there any suggestions of what I could use to make the jewels Starfire has on her gloves and collar?

You could cast some resin jewels, but it's er.. how shall we say. An expensive and complicated process. I know a few commissioners actually offer resin jewel casting services, so you could look into that. Learning to do it oneself probably isn't worth it unless you REALLY need a lot of them and plan to do it in the future (that's how I've looked at it for times when I've considered whether to buy or make, anyway).

You can use plastic Christmas ornaments (cut up into sections) to make your jewels. Or if you want to cast them out of resin, you can try this tutorial I made:
I would recommend using EasyCast clear epoxy resin instead of polyester resin, as it's easier to work with. You can buy a large round cabochon mold at TAP Plastics:

Michael's sells those plastic ornaments that open all year round for $1 - $3 depending on size. The small size should be perfect for her stones.
