Easily Make Your Own Earrings, Bracelets, Pendants and More with Epoxy Resin…
Designing and making your own unique and attractive jewelry using epoxy resin is a fun and creative hobby, or perhaps, future craft enterprise. The possibilities for these one-of-a-kind pieces are only limited by your imagination. Epoxy resin makes a versatile palette for a wide variety of jewelry styles and accessorizing options…
To begin crafting your own resin jewelry, you’ll need some art resin (of course!) and silicone molds into which the epoxy resin mixture is poured. There are two basic ways to acquire silicone molds; purchase them online or from a hobby or craft store or make your own using a piece of jewelry as a mold template and silicone mold putty or liquid silicone which also may be purchased online or from hobby or craft shops.
Other considerations for your custom jewelry creations are colors and design accessories to be added such as beads, metal flake, small costume gems, glitter, tiny seashells – whatever accents suit your individual sense of statement and style. To add color to the mixture itself, epoxy resin pigment options are many and varied from pigment powders to liquid tinting dyes depending upon preference and results desired.
