#Cre8time Jewels... AMAZING Art Nouveau Jewelry by Lyn Gill


Hi everyone! Lyn from LynzCraftz here with a somewhat surprising project today... jewelry! I wanted to reproduce a rather complex piece of jewelry I had just created – but this time using only resin. 

First off I'll share the original piece of jewelry I created...


Created all from polymer clay and inspired by the Designer René Lalique is unfortunately rather heavy – so I thought why not create one from Amazing Casting Resin?


First I started with the frame – I created the frame in polymer clay, baked it, then used Amazing Mold Putty to create a mold so I can reproduce in either polymer or resin {or even chocolate}. CLICK HERE to view how quick and easy moldmaking is using Amazing Mold Putty.


Then I prepared a batch of Amazing Casting Resin, poured it and let it cure {CLICK HERE to view mixing and preparation}. 


I repeated the same steps in creating a mold for the faux glass section, and this time using Amazing Clear Cast Resin with a bit of Alumilite Dye swirled in.

Looking good so far, right?


Now I can change it up. This pendant frame uses Alumilite Metallic Powder in Silver brushed into the mold before I poured Amazing Casting Resin.


For this one I decided to paint the frame a rich yummy Bronze. I love the different finishes that can be achieved this way. The look of clear or frosted glass especially comes across so nicely. This was such a fun project... I'm looking forward to the next one!

What combos could you think of?

Well that's it for today – thank you so much for stopping by... 
Till Next Time! Lyn

Captured Love!!! #Cre8time Jewels by Maria Soto


Hi there! Maria here today with a little something I wanted to share... my take on a "Beauty & The Beast" love project. I put together a couple of tiny and very pretty pendants... the rose reminds me of the "Rose" from Beauty and the Beast.

  

I went shopping for some coloring pens at Michael's one day and took a look at their clearance section. I noticed some little glass dome charms and thought, why not, so I got the three packs they had left. Not sure what I would do with these but figured they would come in handy one day.

I had some tiny flowers and hearts I had cast previously with some leftover resin from another project I was working on, and they were the perfect size to fit in this little "cloches" {name marked on the package}. 


I mixed a very small batch of Amazing Clear Cast Resin and added some of the Alumilite blue dye. I placed a very tiny amount onto the metal part of the jewelry component – using the resin as a glue to hold the tiny heart and the glass dome.


For the tiny rose, I used Mod Podge Dimensional Magic in glitter as a glue too. I also added some clear rhinestones to both pieces. 


A very simple project – once the resin and the dimensional magic cured, all I had to do was add a chain and these lovely domed pieces are ready to wear.


I hoped I have inspired you to create something new using extra pieces you have leftover from old projects. Please share your creations with us by leaving a comment below or on social media.
