Those look awesome! 

Great idea

Thanks mate - though i think my ma gets to take some of the credit for this one - they were her bones (not hers - but she had them in her garden).

What a fantastic idea!  They turned out great.

Thanks - yeah they took me ages (doing the mold etc) but i'm really pleased with them.


I am getting ready to start my own resin projects here in February so this just inspires me even more. It is such a versatile medium for making everything. I love it. You have done a fabulous job. I make jewelry on a regular basis and no for a fact that these would appeal to the buyers eye!

Cheers Beautiful Pirate (ooohhharghhhh).
I'm hoping to sell them - so thanks for the vote of confidence!
You should definetly try playing with some resin - it can be frustrating (as it it sooooo particular and finickety some times) but it is soooo rewarding. Making your own molds is great too. it means you can be really creative. Feel free to message me if you have any questions about working with resin - though there are some awesome resin threads on here already - i learned most of what i know about it from craftster.

Love it! Hitting *THIS ROCKS!*  Cheesy

Those are totally cool! (does that show my age?)

I have never seen anything like that, but WOW they can be used for many occasions. Can you paint or sand resin? If you can, I could see one with the edges smoothed right down and paint it in a dull silver colour so it looks like a loop of melted metal.
Just a thought...

THey look fabulous!

Thanks Cealy,
Yeah they can be sanded adn carved - i haven't taken a picture of the back, but it has little indentations carved in it to make it look more like a sea urchin or some other sort of sea creature.
I haven't worked out a way to paint resin yet (maybe spray paint would work?) but i do have a gold tint which i'm going to try to make some 'blinging bones' :-)
Thanks for the feedback!

I am super please with these new necklaces!
I found these amazing old bones at my ma's place - made a latex mold out of them (which took FOREVER!) and vwa-la!

The final product and the original bones:


I love the shape of this one








All comments / questions welcomed...am more than happy to share my knowledge of resin (or lack there of).

Wow, they must have taken you ages. Great work!

I think making baby presents is some much more original than buying something and you have done a great job.
thanks Nilmerg. it was lots of fun making them, and their babies looked so cute wrapped up in little skull n cross bones (for a punk rock family of course)  Smiley

I love the patchwork blanket/quilt.  I love that you did the stitching on the outside so that it can be seen.

Thanks Daizyduke! I thought hmmmm fuscia stitching is too good to hide :-)

Great blankets!

Lucky friends!

(Why not start a gift closet/drawer with things you know people will love. It will save you from having to get crafty if you're not in the mood! Smiley)

Great idea! I have decide to seel some at my mates market stall. But you're right....i need not worry about baby pressie's anymore :-)

Thanks Narhloki. There's something soooo satisfying about completing one.
