I love big vintage resin rings. I drool over them, I dream about shopping and wake up wishing I owned the ones I purchased in my sleep.
so I think I've finally figured out how to do it, and I could probably keep every single one for myself (which I can't do, boo hoo  Cry )







I also made this wicked necklace from some found objects & shrinky-dink, an you tell I love big, gaudy stuff yet?



the ultimate irony: my mom has owned a jewelry store since I was a baby, and I never wanted anything to do with it, now I'm making jewelry til the wee hours in the morning after I get home from work. Go figure, right?

p.s. I think I need to buy a new camera, for reals.

Love your stuff! I was thinking about trying out resin pouring. It's getting expensive buying charms and pendants when I can learn to make my own. Smiley

haha, it's not as glamorous as it sounds, not with places like Helzberg around, mall jewelry stores make it rough for an entrepreneurial lady like my mommy

Etsy, search in the supplies for "adjustable ring" & you should get several hits

Those rings are great!  I was wondering what you use for molds for the resin?  And do you put the glitter, beads, etc. into the mold and then pour in the resin?
