It's been a while since I sat down and played with resin.  I love it as an art form as there is so much space in such a little space to express creativity.  

A miriad of stuff went into each pendant to give them the look they have, I hope you'll enjoy viewing them.  Comments and such appreciated (they feed the creative monster inside, lol)
 Smiley


Probably one of my favorites I love the stark contrasts present.


Words to live by we should all try this I think Smiley


Wish you were here postage style cancellation in heart.  


Believe in the Dragonfly I love the colors here especially.


These were liberating pieces I took my poetry and cut it up and divided it between a number of different hearts.


Time for love I like how this one appears to be melting up Smiley

Additional pendants (I liked the lighting I got better in the pre finished stages) can be seen in this blog post:  Fresh from the molds

I have a few more pieces I'm working on now that are inspired by collage pages I've seen over the years will post them possibly after they are done Smiley
Thanks for looking!

Actually for the past few months I've been working on a book to show how these processes are done, trouble shooting information, and pretty much a collection of all the knowledge I have collected in my 5+ years of working with resin, it should be completed soon

 Cheesy First off, beautiful pendants. I was looking over them going, damn why do mine look so basic and kid like compared to these, until I read all the posts and seen that you have been doing this for years! There is hope for me lol as I just started messing with resin. It is all trial and error (more error haha) for me at this stage. Made a few I like but way too many have something I see wrong with them. Good thing my pals do not craft cause they think the things I make are great HAHAHHAHAHA Hope to see your book out with all your crafty secrets!!! Grin

I totally love resin. Your pendants are awesome, the layering looks great. I've never had a chance to try resin, I'm pretty intimidated by the art. Do you know of good tutorials?  Smiley

I had been curious about resin in the past but your work posted here is what inspired me to go out and try it.  I'm definitely going to buy your book!!

It's been awhile since I did anything with resin, but using silicone ice cube trays works perfect! The resin pops right out.
