You did not say what KIND of crystals

Dziner

you said oven not kiln- so i will answer based on that-
glass and crystal thermal shock between 500 – 1000 degrees- meaning these are the finicky temperatures-
ovens dont really reach 500 degrees (F) so you should be okay-
but if reaching temps of more- you need to be sure your clay and crystals expand and contract compatibly- and go slow during those shock temps (up and on way back down)
all the best

If you are talking about precious metal clay that converts to real silver or gold, then you are going to have to be very careful. The temps given here

will soften or melt glass crystals. Quartz (rock) crystals will not, but some gem crystals will change color. If this is to be a stage prop, then you could use polymer clay and be totally safe.
