Wow, everything looks great!  I especially love the skull and the bangles.  Did you drill a hole for the hook or can you just screw them in?

How do you do resin? It seems like the kind of thing I would really like, I just don't know much about it. These are all amazing. Especially the bracelets!

Thank you! You can drill them if you're careful, but I use screw-eye's for my pieces. As long as you put them in when they are ready to come out of the mold but not too hard yet, they go in just fine. There were a couple that were too hard for screws before, though.

Thank you! The mushroom is one of my favorites too. I couldn't resist buying those when I saw them.

Thank you! There is a resin thread here : http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=10667.0  I know it's extremely long, but that's the thread that helped me out the most when I was just getting started.

Keep trying!! Things come to you easier the longer that you do it. My first pieces weren't exactly something I'd post on crafster  Tongue

Are the screw-eyes made specifically for jewelry or are they just really tiny ones you found at a hardware store?

really tiny ones I found at a hardware store. I've discovered though, that if you have a home improvement store like Menards around that they are much cheaper through there than a locally owned hardware store.

I never thought to look for jewelry supplies at a hardware store.  Thanks for the tip!
