Astral Love Resin Necklace Tutorial
Created by: Rita Hutchinson
See instruction page (below) for making no-solder bezels.
Cut paper to match bezel wire shape.
Seal paper and adhere to inside of bezel.
Mix a small batch of resin and pour a starting layer.
When first pour is cured, mix a new batch (add glitter), and pour to fill the bezel.
Create decorative section of chain with crystal and metal beads. The crystals are on thicker wire with simple loops. The corrugated beads are on 24-gauge wire with wrapped loops. Wrap the beaded section directly to the chain. Use appropriately sized jump rings to attach clasp, and for clasp loop. (See Jewelry Basics 101 for step by step Looping instructions.)
Carefully patinate (oxidize) the decorative chain section. Do not allow the patina to come in contact with the resin. Highlight with polishing pad.
One or more parts (or tools) used in this project are temporarily out of production (TOP). We are actively looking for replacements, and hope to have good subs for the missing parts, available SOON!
