I had a bunch of resin pendants left over from the craft sales I was in last weekend, and finally had a minute to take some pictures! A PLETHORA!
Some are ephemera images, some are vintage charms...

how do you manage to keep your plastic charms from melting in the resin?

Do you say 'yes' to a single desire? Oh, my friends, then you say 'yes' to all pain.

What kind of resin do you use? And for the uh...necklace hole thing..(how technical of me Tongue), is it just placed in the resin or is it connected to a backing the whole resin pendant is placed on? What is it and where did you get it if you don't mind my asking.

I really like the vintagey feel of them Cheesy

I use epoxy resin. -- The necklace hole thing is called a bail, and it is glued on the back-- when I have a large layer of clear resin in the front, I don't like to see an ugly drill hole or bottom of a screw, so I do glue on bails so the image isn't disturbed. It is called an aanraku bail-- if you google it you will find lots of suppliers.

thanks guys

I use castin craft if I need it at short notice (I can get it at craft stores)and envirotech and Alumilite when I order in advance online. I haven't found that much difference in the brands I use, for me epoxy is epoxy.
