BEST RESIN JEWELRY IDEAS
1. WOODEN RESIN RINGS
Shop For Ring Resin Molds
Making rings with resin is very popular and there are many ways to make them. You can carve the resin with tools once it is cured or you can use ring molds. If your are handy with wood, wooden resin rings are stunning and make a great gift idea.
2. FLOWER RESIN RINGS
Resin rings with flowers are one of those classics. When adding flowers to resin, they must be completely dried out to avoid changing colors or even growing mold over time.
To make resin rings, the easiest way is to purchase ring blanks and small dried flowers.
3. RESIN FLOWER PENDANTS

The most delicate designs can be made with round resin molds and dried flowers. Not only can you add flowers to resin, you can also include shimmer paints and glitters to give them extra accents.
4. SQUARE RESIN CHARMS
Square charms can be made in many sizes. You can make dainty charms or go all out to make large chunky resin jewelry.
When shopping for square molds, look for high-quality silicone that is made for resin. The best molds will be soft, durable, and have a high tear resistance when unmolding the charm.
5. RESIN CHARMS
Pendant trays come in lots of sizes, shapes and designs. When using a pendant tray, you pour the resin right onto the charm to set.
You can add flowers and dried herbs for a natural look. Or you can cut pieces out of paper, and when they are ready, seal the paper for resin and pour the epoxy right on top for a domed look.
6. RESIN BRACELETS
Imagine all of the beautiful creations that can be made with resin bracelet molds. The nice thing about using silicone molds is that you just need to twist the mold gently to release your piece.
Your design will come right out of the mold when it is completely cured.
7. RESIN DANGLE EARRINGS
Resin earrings can be made with either earring blanks or free form pouring. You can purchase sublimation blanks in lots of different shapes like teardrops, square and vintage.
