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? 

molds? those were made with the 6-well paint pallets, an idea I got from my favorite vintage resin ring and this post:

pouring? I usually pour a little in the bottom first, then add more of the beads. Pour more resin over them & stir it up to get the beads well-coated, then give the resin a minute to settle. I usually finish off with a little more beads & glitter to make sure the whole container is full. You can use a hair dryer to get all the bubbles out, but sometimes they look neat, so it's up to you.

They're all beautiful, I've been meaning to investigate using resin for a while now, you've just given me the kick I needed to look into it properly!

I absolutely ADORE chunky rings, and resin is the perfect example of how versatile you can make them. They are so cute!

i have a quick, but possibly stupid question. Do you hold the actual ring in the resin somehow while it dries,  or do you drill a hole or something afterwards?

Wowie-Pretties! It took a second to recognize seed beads and glitter for what they were! I had to go back and look at the red one a second time and then "A-ha!"... they look great!

thanks ma'am! I definitely need to make more, but that would mean sitting over a baggie full of mixed colors & a paper clip... I don't think my back can take it, but they're so cute!
