with You-V Resin
These resin earrings are rather quick and very easy to make. I used You-V resin because of its quick drying time and safety features. Using a mold and a few inclusions and I have a new pair of earrings that work with a variety of different outfits.

I used blue jewelry gel resin from You-V, an earring mold, a UV flashlight, and some glitter inclusions.
The resin and inclusions are in the mold. Blue jewelry gel resin is transparent and very light in color. In this image, you can see the randomness and similarities of the inclusions.
All the curing steps were done with a UV flashlight. The gel can be cured with a UV nail lamp as well. Because the resin cures quickly, it was easy to hold a flashlight for the time needed. A UV nail light will also work.
Once the resin pieces were taken out of the mold and cleaned up, they were ready for the jewelry findings. I actually needed 2 more small jump rings that aren’t seen in this photo.

Not all UV resin works the same way. You-V is rather special in that it cures quickly (30 seconds to a minute) and is SGS certified with solvent-free composition. Under regular handling, it has a low risk of skin irritation making it safe to use without protection as well as safe for kids to use.
