Just thought I would share a few photos with you of my first attempt at resin jewellery making. I bought a low viscosity resin kit from Jewellery Maker just after Christmas which came with the resin, metallic flakes and a silicon bead mould. Once the resin has been mixed and poured into the mould, the flakes are added and stirred into the resin. You are never quite sure how the flakes will settle so de-moulding them was a bit of a surprise.
Now I have made them I need to work out what to do with them – I think the cabochons will look great as necklace pendants and I think I might do some macrame with the beads. I also think I might try to use some gemstone nuggets in the same way as the flakes to see what effect I get… what do you guys think?
