Fun with Resin

Lately I've really liked adding charms to my jewelry, and I've been hunting online for different charms and pendants, and found some BEAUTIFUL ones that I loved. Many were really reasonably priced, but then there were some that were kind of pricey. With jewelry making, every little thing adds up such as: the focal bead, filler beads, chain, wire, clasp etc. I really do love buying artisan beads and pendants, but I decided that I might like to try something new and make my own. I went to Michael's to go buy the resin (for future reference, ask the sales people for epoxy NOT resin, or they will send you on a wild goose chase). I went home and excitedly tore through all my scrapbook papers. I picked some papers I thought would look nice, and I then added a couple charms in the bezels, and was ready to put in the resin. I mixed the solutions half and half and then took my daughters old medicine dropper and filled that with the resin. I carefully added enough resin to the bezels and came out with this!
