Very cute flower - I have always liked the words embedded into resin idea.

You do not need to drill holes to make your resin lovelies into jewellery - you can buy bails that glue onto the backs (also, rings with base pads on them to be glue onto).

I buy mine on etsy as I like the sterling silver ones, but I am sure they can be found in any craft shop in the bead & jewelry section (if you are lucky enough to have a craft shop, I am not so fortunate).

Here are some etsy shops with glue-on bails

Shops with Aanraku sterling silver bails:

Shop with cheaper silver plate bails as well as bases for bobby pins, brooches, etc:

I love working with resin!  I don't use a drill either, I buy jewelry supplies that can be glued to the back of my pieces....you can also buy bails from craft stores or jewelry suppliers online (sometimes cheaper than etsy), just google around for them Smiley
