Lately I have been absolutely obsessed with playing with Resin. Resin is a material that you can make into any shape, add any colors, glitter or pictures to it to make a variety of different objects.
My first project with resin was my wine charms. I used my pictures that I shot around Cleveland and made a cute wine charm out of them. The wine charms sit perfectly on the base of your wine glass so that you never lose. I love them because I ALWAYS lose my wine glass at a party, and this solves that problem.
Being the scorpio that I am, naturally I wanted more items to make. So I started thinking, and that is when I started making jewelry with the resin. My first jewelry item that I made was a bracelet for myself. I used some images from my wedding, and made a personal bangle bracelet for myself. I loved having my photos on my bracelet, reminding me of the best day of my life!
I really like making these bracelets because the options are endless! In this process I discovered that I have a serious addiction to beads, the more beads the better!!!! These charms are great because you can customize them with any picture. You can put pictures of your wedding, kids, grand children, or even your fur baby!
Since the bracelets were such a hit, I continued my journey in the resin world and now I am making really fun sparkly glittery earrings and necklaces. I have been playing around with different shaped molds, and colors, and they are really fun! I really like how the resin encloses the glitter, and it really sparkles in the light!
So now I have no idea where this little journey is going to lead next, but I know it isn’t over! I imagine that there will be more glitter and more fun to be had!
