I've done lots of lurking on Craftster, but I've never posted any of my projects until now!

These are a couple of mixed media pieces I made over the weekend using resin and polymer clay. (It was my first time using resin--and my first time using polymer clay!)



This is simply dried leaves and watch gears.



This is acrylic paint, photographs, and bones.



It's hard to see the inclusions in this small piece, but there are bones, watch parts, and miniature glass beads.

They're all pendants, though they're not strung up yet.

I found out that resin is STINKY  Shocked Haha!

Comments are greatly appreciated!

Those are amazing.  What kind of bones?

Thanks, mommadear. I thought it'd be easier to make my own jewelry 'blanks' rather than trying to buy some I liked.

Thanks, Rosie1981! The bones are chicken vertebrae--I think. I've had them for so long (maybe 6 or 7 years) that I actually don't remember if I saved them myself or bought them from a local bead store that used to sell funky stuff like that.
