Amazing Resin Pendant
My mom enjoys making jewelry and several years ago she talked me into taking a jewelry making class with her. Since then I have enjoyed making a few pieces here and there, but now that I have found the fabulous Amazing Crafting Products I have even more fun making jewelry. This is a quick pendant I made in just a few hours.
I started by making the mold using equal amount of Amazing Mold Putty and a child's wood block. I found the blocks at a local dollar store during the holidays and they work great for making square molds, round molds, triangle molds, etc.
After I had the mold created I mixed some White Amazing Casting Resin and mixed a little Black Dye in and poured it into the mold.
I allowed it to sit according to the casting resin directions and popped it out of the mold and here is what it looked like. What fun!
For the design, I used one of my favorite company's rub-ons. Would you believe that is a rub-on that is normally used on scrapbook pages and cards? I, also, drilled a hole in the top and added a jump ring. After that I added the gems with my heat tool made for attaching stones to jewelry pieces I finished it off by adding it to some lame' roping with a few extra beads I had from other projects and just like that I had a new necklace to enjoy and what is even more fun is that I created it from scratch with the help of Amazing Mold Putty and Amazing Casting Resin!
