The Art Of Resin Jewelry
Resin jewellery is made from liquid plastic that magically turns solid when a hardener is added. The popularity of these resins for jewellery-making has soared with the introduction of easy-to-mix, low-odour products, ideal for crafters. Now best-selling author Sherri Haab shows how to put the miracle of modern technology to work making necklaces, bangles, bracelets, pins, earrings, and rings. Projects range from simple to sophisticated, from Bakelite-style heart pins to faux amber earrings to glitter gem bracelets, and more. Packed with tips on tools, supplies, finishing, and creating special effects, including ideas on combining resins with polymer clay, "The Art of Resin Jewelry" is a beautiful and practical introduction to an exciting new craft.
