Absolutely LOVE  these bracelets!!! I checked out your etsy page...awesome.  Some questions?  Can you make a bigger bracelet, my wrists are fatter than your normal wrist.  Also, if I wanted a custom bracelet, would you find all the pictures or would I send them to you??

Thanks. 

Hi,

Sure, I can make any size. I usually make them to fit my wrists (which are strangely small - I wish I could say the same about my thighs, but sadly, no). But anyhow, just give me your wrist size and I can make to fit.

As far as pictures, it's up to you. Either I can find or if you have some you like, send to me and I can resize, etc. to make jewelry.

Thanks,

K

They are m&m stickers from Wal-Mart. I stuck each one to itself (so m&m image is same on front as the back). I tried to use real m&m's, but when the resin cures, it heats up - so the m&m's cracked and distorted all funky. I even tried freezing the m&m's first, but still squshification happened when the resin cured.

hehe i like that word - squshification they do look real though, which is definitely cool. i would probably get hungry wearing the bracelet though  Roll Eyes

Well, hmmm. I guess for my purposes, resin is kind of like a glue. Resin alone is a sticky/liquidy stuff (and if your dog accidentally gets some all over his fluffy tail, let's just say you will be making an emergency grooming appointment for him) - and when you add a catalyst to the resin, it causes it to harden. Then you can put stuff in it (like pictures or . . . whatever) before it hardens and make some really spiffy jewelry.
