This is fantastic! Well done. I love the dark crystal! My two year old just watched Labyrinth for the first time just the other day. He loved it.

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: The random RESIN question thread! on: June 28, 2011 06:03:28 PM
So I'm going to make some resin plugs and I am having a hard time finding out if resin is safe to use in the ears. I have super sensitive ears so has anyone else tried this out?

I just read your comment... I was wondering what you would be using to make the plugs out of the resin? I wanted to have a mold for plugs so that I could make resin plugs but could not find any. I tried to by mold making supplies and make my own mold but that didn't come out really well. Could you help me out with like a site I could buy molds or a secret mold making kit that would be better to use? Thanks so much for the help.

These are the supplies that you will need when making a fabric flower. Hot glue gun, scissors, fabric (of any color) and a gem.

I doubled my fabric so it would be thicker. Cut a 2inch strip of fabric.

Fold one end in to make a triangle. Glue here to keep this down.

From the smallest end, start rolling the fabric in. Start gluing to keep the fabric in place.

The top/middle of the flower should look like this.

With the rest of the fabric start to roll the fabric away from the middle of the flower. Keep gluing in different spots to keep the fabric from falling apart.

In this picture you see that I'm holding the flower in my hand and turning the fabric tail away from the middle of the flower. There will be a little tail of fabric that you can hang onto when doing this step. (We will deal with that in a bit.) Now just roll the fabric away from the middle and keep gluing to keep it together. When continuing around the flower you will place the fabric around the sides to make the flower grow.

Make sure you leave a tail of fabric so that you can glue this last bit of fabric to the back of your flower so it can stay together.

When you turn the flower over, here is the tail that you were hanging on to.

Just press down on this tail so that you can finish the flower.

*WARNING* Please when doing this step watch the glue because its HOT! (I burned my finger this time)
Take a glob of glue where the tail was then lay the extra fabric over the bottom of the flower.
(And if you notice at the top there is a bit of fabric hanging over. I will show you what I did with this below.)

I just glued the top part down.

When you turn it right side up your flower should look like this.

Now trim around the flower.

Then it should look like this.

Then you can add a gem or a pearl, however you want to jazz up your flower.

Then you can add it onto a ring blank.

You can make as big of flowers as you can think up. Just experiment with the sizes of fabric that you cut out with your flowers. Hope this helps and enjoy!

Also: If you don't like the fringes on the side of the fabric you can always hold the fabric close (not in or touching) a flame so the fabric doesn't unravel. But I like those fabric fly aways!

Looks great! Of course if you'd made thousands of them you'd have to have thousands of ears to put them on lol.

Would you mind sharing the tutorial? I'd love to give it a try.

Here is the site I got the tutorial off of... enjoy!

My first attempt at these awesome ear cuffs. I stumbleupon'd this tutorial and had to try it out myself. What an easy accessory! I could make thousands if it wasn't for the fact that I ran out of wire!

Thanks for looking!
