I made these recently while making some note cards.  I had some punched out paper pieces that were leftover from those and other projects and they were small little bits.  So I decided to embed them in resin to make some pendents.  I used some plastic packaging that I had saved, likely from packages of extra x-acto blades, and layered thin layers of resin and the bits of cut paper shapes.  As a backing, I embedded washi paper on the back, with the second to last pour of resin.  The final pour was after I unmolded the pieces and trimmed away the edges, and sanded the edges down.




This one is done with mini die cut gears, cut from kraft paper.  I painted some of them with metallic acrylic paint.  A couple I left bare paper, and they darkened as they absorbed the resin, and were set in the back, so they actually look rusty/old/oxidized.  The backing paper is a textured charcoal paper with some specks.  I thought it made nice contrast to the metal





This one is done with some teeny die cut stars, cut from yellow paper, some of which were painted gold.  I backed it with a wee scrap of star patterned washi paper on a light blue background.  The paper, being such a light colour, became very translucent and made a great pale, almost luminous background.




This last one is done with some die cut red hearts that were leftover from when I made an anniversary card for DH.  I left them the bare paper, and the resin made them a nice deeper red.  I thought a dark contrast would be nice with the red.  There were some tiny dot die cuts that came from the same die, and added that as a bit of confetti detail.  I added the same textured charcoal paper which I thought was a nice contrast with the red.

I was happy to make these three - I basically use scrap washi paper and scrap die cuts, and some left over mixed resin from another project I was making - would have hated to toss it away...

These are so pretty. Love the gears. I would never have guessed they were paper.

Thank you - yes, ever since I made my teacup pendents, I have been looking at punches and mini dies differently - they make great shape embeds in resin, or a pendent collage!

Wow, these are really awesome!  The gears one is my favorite, followed by the hearts (that'd make a grand Valentine's Day gift).  Beautiful jewelry!

Thank you - resin is fun to play with - it can be super frustrating at times - but sometimes we are also too hard on ourselves.  But when it turns out right - it can be great!
