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.

materials

I used blue jewelry gel resin from You-V, an earring mold, a UV flashlight, and some glitter inclusions.

resin in mold

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.

uv light

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.

jewelry parts

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.

To see all the process steps and tips watch the complete video tutorial below.

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.

DIY Butterfly Earrings

final earrings

I was so happy with the result of these DIY Butterfly Earrings. When my daughters saw them they requested pairs be made for them too, so I knew I had stumbled upon something good.

stamped image

I began with a stamped image on Grafix shrink art film in white. StazOn ink is great for this process because it is made for every surface and stamps a rich dark black.

cut out film

After stamping the image and allowing the ink to dry, I cut out the butterflies with a small detail scissor.

colored in

Coloring the butterfly with water-based markers was a bit of a challenge on plastic but I have a few tips in the video tutorial to make it work.

size difference

See the size difference between the stamped image and after the film has been shrunk. I used a heat gun to shrink the film, a dedicated toaster oven also works well.

I colored the edge and the back of the butterfly with a permanent black marker. Then I coated the back with matte UV resin and the front with jewelry resin both from You-V. The cool thing about You-V resin is that it is a quick cure resin, less than a minute under a UV flashlight.

You can see the gloss of the resin on the butterfly now. Drilling a hole into the top of the wing prepares the piece for the jewelry findings.

Polymer Clay and UV Resin Earrings

I am really excited about the results I am achieving with this technique. I think I have only just scratched the surface of the possibilities. I really like how the paint (DecoArt Interference)¬†changes from white to colors when applied to a dark surface. The UV Resin really enhances the colors and gives emphasis to the dimension. I’ve only made earrings so far but I look forward to making pendants and more. The colors are so pretty and work together well.
