after seeing all the inspiring piece of resin work on this board, i had to go out and try it myself! i ordered a bangle mold from ebay (resinobsession) and purchased some nice embedding and casting resin from Bunnings, and set to work! and here is the end results...

this one was inspired by my home town of Bendigo, it is famous for gold mining, so i included gold glitter and some gum nuts and gum leaves!



this next one is my feminist/ empowering bracelet. it has vellum paper embedded with words such as fantastic, wonderful, beautiful.. etc printed on it.


this next one is my favourite, it has a bit of old black lace, some embroidery thread, some beads, charms and a little bead shaped like a pair of scissors. its crafty!


the next two were inspired by craftster (in particularly ammasmamma) and has paprika in the browny looking one, and the next one was one i made after easter using alllll those easter egg wrappers all folded into teeny squares! it was a good excuse to eat more chocolate!



this last photo is two that i have experimented with and are not yet finished up.. one has an experimentation with red food dye (don't try that.. it doesn't work, and its messssy for days) and the other has buttons in it!


i have been having so so so much fun with it all! i have yet to try pendants but i am looking forward to it!
so thanks to crafster for the inspiration and the motivation! (and to ammasmamma for her inspiring peices!)

p.s sorry about my makeshift attempt at creating a studio type setting....a piece of paper on a knife box was the best i could come up with, haha

I love them all! Is resin hard to work with- I'm always afraid that it would set before I could finish it.  I absolutely adore the one with the writing; I would never think of doing that, and it's done so well. If I had tried to put words inside I'd probably do it backwards, get it of-center... basically any way to mess it up I would do.  These are so getting "This Rocks!"

they are soo pretty..

when photographing if you have a macro setting on your camera that will work wonders on the up close photos and natural lighting works best..either through a window or right outside..

you spend so much time and your talent on a great piece you deserve some nice photos..great job...

I had to get a new camera when I switched from selling clothes to selling jewelry, and I still struggle with taking pictures! They look really good though, and it'll probably make pendants seem easier since you started with bangles! Smiley

I know it's a bit hard to see, but I really like the "feminist/empowering" one. I wish I could see another photo of it. Very cool!

Yeah, I tried mixing food dye into the resin and I discovered it didn't work too well. Then I decided I liked the way it looked. It reminded me of confetti. Kind of.
