Just thought I'd show a finished project.  I showed my 'initial' resin pieces yesterday.  Well, here is the floral photograph strung on a cord & ribbon necklace.  I also made the polymer beads.


Opinions and helpful suggestions are more than welcome!  Especially since it was all you who started this!

Great work!  Is the resin behind the photo tinted or is the light just shining through the photo making it look that way?  I love resin work, I'd love to try it out!

I was actually attempting a 'faux amber' look (see www.eti-usa.com Castin' Crafts website) to use with inbedded fossil shark teeth.  This was left over, so I tried imbedding the photo - which worked out great.

Thanks for the compliments!

I really like the way you glued a bead to the top to put the cord through. I would have never thought of that!

A compliment from one of the resin masters - I'm speechless!  Shocked  I just didn't think a wire would look classy enough against the ribbon.  However, I did drill into the resin and the bead (just a little), then smathered with glue.  I wanted to get some attachment to the inside of the resin.  I was worried that just gluing the bead to the top, it could potentially separate.

I thought of the bead because I'm into polymer. 

Thanks again for the lessons!
