For this challenge, I decided to use up the remaining resin from my EasyCast resin kit. Originally, I was disappointed with resin because my molds did not cure during the fall. I had to throw out my bangle mold but using a little fingernail polish remover, I was able to keep the oval, circular, rectangular, and heart shape molds.

Looking through my findings bins, I found some tarnished bezel I've been holding onto. I strayed a cameo bezel with red spray paint and red glitterblast.



For the cabochon, I used clear resin and candy sprinkles. I poured a small portion of resin into the oval mold, poured sprinkles and added more resin. Fortunately, it cured properly, and I was able to file down any access resin and fit it into the cameo. I used e-6000 glue to attach the cabochon onto the cameo. 

I'm very happy with how it turned out. It is a little unusual for me but I look forward to wearing the chunky piece because you cannot go wrong with sprinkles and glitter.

Couldn't agree more...you can't go wrong with glitter & sprinkles! The glittery colorful frame is very cool!
