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.

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.

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.

Tres Jolie Monthly Kit :: Necklace

Working with a kit from Tres Jolie, I made a chipboard gear necklace. I am a guest designer for the month of June. #sponsored

This month I am a guest designer at Tres Jolie Kits. I was sent the Cards, Tags, and More kit. The kit included chipboard gears. I used those to create this chipboard gear necklace.

I used a variety of metallic paints on the gears. To begin I painted one in brown/bronze and the other in silver.

The necklace would be fine in brown and silver but I tend to like a bit more color so I used a blotting technique on the silver painted gear. I also painted the backs of the gears so they would look finished.

After gluing the dried gear pieces together, I added a thin layer of UV Resin. The resin adds a finished glossy look to the piece as well as adding stability.

Wrapping craft wire around the end of my paintbrush made for a bail for the back of the gears.

I Super Glued the bail to the back of the gear pieces that were glued together. In the above photo you can see that back of the piece is painted.

All that is left to do is thread the cord and ribbon necklace through the bail. I toyed with the idea of making this into a pin or a necklace. Obviously I chose the necklace. Which do you think you would choose?

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.
