Ok, I've seen a lot of these around and i'd like to make my own but I have no idea how.  First off, where do I get resin...I mean, is there a certain brand name I should look for?  Next, where do I get molds and how do you keep the resin from sticking to the mold?  Is it easy to get it out once its hardened?  Here is a bracelet I want to make (minus the bugs, I want to stick something else inside)...any ideas?

Hey, I make resin bracelets, and if you check the featured projects, waaaay down near the start, you can see the ones I made with some instructions.  There have been heaps of comments and questions since I last checked but some very helpful person has answered most of them on the 5th page of comments!  So check that out too.  If you still have any questions I'll try to answer them for you.

It is easy to get it out of the molds once it has hardened.  I use ice cube trays and I just bend them gently until the sides come away.  The tricky part is finding the trays in the right shape and size, and without any weird indentations on the bottom.  Good luck!

Just wanted to say that when I was looking at cicadas the other day, I KNEW I could do something crafty with them
I was thinking earrrings, but this is much less gross.
