I am wondering if someone experienced with the use of resin could tell me if you could somehow coat jump rings with it, and if so, how would I do it?
I know, what would I wanna do that? I am highly allergic to anything but platinum and would really like to make some jewelry for myself that I could wear. And I made this necklace and really liked it out of jump rings.
Thanks for any help.

In reference to your allergy...I have heard that coating the jump rings with clear nail polish will serve the same purpose.  It would also be easier and cheaper than resin.

Trying to coat rings with resin would be difficult.  It takes a LONG time for resin to cure (dry).

I don't think you can get good results because it's liquid, so if you are not using a mold, it'll want to flow off. Clear spray paint seems like a much better option. Btw, are you allergic to titanium and niobium? They are pretty inert...

Thanks PeaceAndPrayer, I think that may be a good idea. Hello Color! and thanks for your suggestions too!
You know I don't know about being allergic to niobium and titanium. That's a thought...I know a long time ago I was able to wear something that was rhodium plated.
I wonder if I could find some jump rings in one these metals?? Huh Sure would love to be able to wear more of my own jewelry!
hello color!

I'm sure more will come up if you google it, but Reactive Metals comes to mind. I'm not sure if they have jump rings, but they have good prices on niobium earring components, which are cool because they can be anodized to pretty colors. (Niobium earrings are around $1/pair at many other places.) Their site is a little hard to navigate, but the prices are worth it!
