I have been making ridiculous resin things with tiny plastic other things imbedded for quite some time now, but I was trying to keep everything elegant and not.... ridiculous. Well, lets embrace it.
This is my favorite, most ridiculous new pendant.

THAT'S SO COOL.  I'm sure there's a tutorial somewhere on here.  Could someone point me in the right direction?

there is a resin thread but it is about 75 pages long at this point. The beginning does have good info, though. Basically, you will need to make or buy a mold, buy resin (poly or epoxy, I use epoxy), mix it up, pour it, imbed what you want, let it cure, take it out and finish it. voila.
I have always wanted to say voila, I think that is the first time I managed.
Search resin, you will find the big guy, and if you have any questions I am happy to help

Hey I was wondering where I could get the resin at. I checked at Joanns but couldn't find any. I'm not even sure what it looks like! Could you tell me where I could get some and about how much it would cost?

This is hilariously cool!  How do you get the bail to look so perfect?  I always end up making random shapes of resin and drilling them, but it never turns out right.

Too adorable!!! (dinos adorable - YES!)  I love it and I find it elegant!

Joann's does not carry resin.  Hobby Lobby and Michael's does.  The 'difficult' one comes in a can with catalyst.  The easy one is 'Easy Cast' and comes in a box.  I used to use the difficult one (because it is slightly less expensive), but ammasmama suggested I use the easy cast.  And viola!  I love it.

The Easy Cast is two 8 ounce bottles (resin and hardner) in a box.  In my area (Arlington, Texas)- I find that Hobby Lobby is $2 more than Michael's.

Hope this helps.  Good Luck.
