Resin in the Mix

March 23, 2011, 13:47 pm  Posted by Lark
 

Resin is an amazingly versatile element when used in jewelry making. It can be used as a clear varnish covering an image or collage. It can encapsulate an object. It can be colored. It can be used as an opaque filler. Sparkles, sand or other elements can be added to the filling. Its surface can vary from shiny to matte. Resin can be poured into a mold to create parts or a full piece. Overall, the jewelry tends to be a lot of fun and the translucent qualities of the medium are beautiful. Take a look at this gallery of work that demonstrates some of the different techniques used with resin in jewelry.
