Hi, I'm Holly I've been lurking for years but have a burning question for ya.  Sorry, I can't post pics yet, but I'm IDSO how to make something similar to this!  How do you suppose it's done?   Huh

looks like this is more like a 2 piece construction?.. i wouldnt think you could get an air bubble with liquid in it so perfect in the center like that... and the air bubble would more than likely float to the top.. eh?

Liquid resin doesn't react well with other liquids, but I assume that it would be okay to have liquid next to it once it has been cured.  I would use oil, then you have to make sure it's sealed really, really, really well, so you don't get green oil all over the person who's wearing the piece.   I also don't think that the pendants in the pics are made out of resin, but it's hard to tell what they may be... possibly some other type of plastic.

I'm glad you posted this because I was at the craft store the other day looking at some clearance stuff... they has these little flexible plastic boxes that were covered in little squares filled with liquid... if it wasn't so expensive i would of bought it just to cut the little squares out and then embed them in resin..... Maybe they found something similar with circles instead? 

think of these but flatter all connected on a sheet of plastic...  http://www.global-b2b-network.com/b2b/41/76/934/7476/bath_oil_beads.html

Could you seal one of those bath oil beads in decoupage and *then* embed it in resin?

TY for your help!  I found them on Etsy, and it says made from resin.  I love the bath bead idea, but I wanted to put my own liquid in and I actually love the bubble KWIM?  Kind of gives it character...  want to be able to see the liquid moving.

Do you happen to know what these were called or what section theyy would have been in the craft store (I realize they were prob in the clearance bin).  Anyone know where I could get hollow bubbles to fill?  Maybe a glass blower?  Hmmm, I'm just itching to figure this out.  I even once tried the glyerin capsules that you fill with your own herbs , but they of course just melted when the liquid touched it.   Roll Eyes   I need something with this idea that will hold liquid, then I can always decoupague it like the PP said before embedding.

I don't know what you would call it... it was a little folding bin at Joanns... i searched hi and lo on the website.. but i don't know what section it would of been in originally.  I mean.. it was teeny tiny.. like, you could fit a soda can in it and thats about it.  The closest thing I have found on the web so far is liquid filled stickers.. those could work, but i couldn't find any circles.  Just silly things like princesses and mickey mouse heads and m&ms http://www.createforless.com/Sticko+Stickers+Liquid+M_and_Ms+Circles/pid80261.aspx

Maybe if you go to the craft store and look through the stickers or scrapbooking supplies, you could find a circle.  I haven't been, otherwise trust me, I would have looked!  Wink
