Inspiration: Jewelry from colored pencils

maria christina belluci Wow!  These pieces of jewelry fashioned from colored pencils are so uplifting.

They are made by Maria Cristina Belluci who was featured on Haute*Nature.

I would love to make something like this. I am hazarding a guess that they are glued (possibly colored epoxy) and then cut down to shape.  But if you have a better idea, let me know!  Or if you are the jeweler, we would love some hints at your technique.
