My bf and I are going there (Atlanta) to visit his brother next month - I keep seeing cool crafts from there now...  Grin  You did a LOT of pendants, wow.  I also like the round soup spoon ones best... you can barely even tell it's a spoon!  Neat idea.   Wink

How absolutely stunning!  They are all wonderful, but I am partial to the one with the seahorse.  Thanks for sharing.

gorgeous!
i love that idea. i recently made a bracelet by bending a spoon. so i now really want to try this as a new project!

i think the best is if you use a long sterling silver chain and have pendant with a nice grey tank!!

I can see why you're obsessed! Makes me want to get into resin-ing.

i love your spoons! i tried this recently, but had a couple issues. you said that you glue the backgrounds down and sometimes just let images float for a 3d effect. i did this also, but the images kept popping up out of the resin. i thought maybe they werent filled enough, so i added more resin and kept trying to poke them back down. didnt help, just overflowed. so i ended up with hardened pendants that had images sticking out of the resin, and resin stuck to the back of the spoon. any suggestions? i'd appreciate it!

 Cheesy These are amazing! I have never worked with resin, but have seen some very interesting crafts lately using it. Do you have any advice or tips to offer?

These are absolutely amazing, so many great designs! I want them all! You are truly talented, just how everything goes together so well. Some of them even seem to tell mini-stories (a picture is worth a thousand words ^.^)

Sorry I abandoned my thread, but hopefully this will help. As far as the images coming up and out of the resin, yes, this sometimes happens. When it does, I just wait until the resin has hardened completely, then do a second resin pour over the first. This should give you the 3-D effect you want.

As far as the resin getting stuck to the back of the spoon, this happens to me a lot as the spoons are very easy to overfill. I always pour the resin into the spoons on a surface of waxed paper as this ensures the resin only sticks to the spoon and not the surface you are working on. Once the resin has hardened, it is fairly easy to remove from the fack of the spoon. A pair of needle nose plier work best for this. You just need to get a tiny bit of air under the resin to remove it and it should pop right off.

Hope this helps!

I really love these!!! I have been tinkering around with spoon pendants myself, but I have been having some issues.  Do you flatten your spoons? If so, how do you flatten them?  I have been trying to put on the backgrounds (pictures, scrapbook paper, etc) without flattening the bowl of the spoon but the paper wrinkles and isn't a smooth finish.  I haven't had any luck flattening my spoons with just a hammer.  Any suggestions?
