How to Make Resin Pendants and Brand New Jewelry Projects Inside!
September 03, 2008

Hello, jewelry making friends.  This past week or so has been all about how to make and use resin jewelry components in your designs.  Have you always wondered how to make those cool resin pendants featuring your own embedded photos or other objects?  Then check out my step-by-step resin bead and pendant making project, and learn how to make resin beads today!  I am also featuring several resin jewelry designs using components from the "Fresh" brand, available at Michael's Crafts stores.  These resin components are bright and fun, and best of all--inexpensive!  Given the price of metal and gemstone beads these days, resin is a fun alternative to try when you want to make something unique and creative without spending a fortune. My latest free jewelry projects are listed below, have fun!  

Keep checking the blog each day, as I upload several new jewelry making projects every week. If you're looking for inexpensive beads and supplies discounts, be sure to check the Events Calendar for a Bead Show coming to your town.  Also, in the Jewelry Supplies group, I try to announce the latest bead store and bead website sales each week.
