Resin necklaces have become pretty popular lately, but not everyone knows how to make them or has the baubles to put inside. I’m here to show you how to make them, and to convince you that you already have the baubles to put inside.
Let’s get down to it!
1. Gather materials. (The index card is to move the bezel carefully if i want to set it aside. Just slide the card over!)
2. I used a 1″ punch and a 1″ bezel to make a perfect paper circle to fit inside. This is optional.
3. Mod Podge over the paper (or just the back of the bezel), coating with a thin layer.
4. Sprinkle some microbeads into the bezel while the Mod Podge is still wet. You’ll need to put a good amount into the frame and lightly shake it around on the tabletop to be sure that the beads have covered the entire surface of the bezel.
5. Now it’s time to choose a charm from those old bracelets you used to wear! I chose a little metal rose, and snipped the extra metal pieces off.
6. Next, pour a little resin (SLOWLY!) into the bezel. You’ need to move the resin around with a toothpick so it fills in the entire space. Just be patient and careful in this process so you don’t move the beads to the surface.
7. Lastly, I placed the little charm oh so lightly on top of the shiny resin. It’s so cute!
You’ll want to let your resin pendants dry for at least 24 hours. Don’t be tempted to touch the resin AT ALL before that point or you’ll get a fingerprint impression in it!
As before, I can’t resist making more! This project took me about 30 minutes (without drying time), so I decided to add 3 new necklaces to my collection!
Aren’t they lovely? And easy, easy, easy!
