Modern Resin Jewellery

by Sara Naumann

Be impressed by the ease and versatility of resin jewellery making.

Building on the success of her first book, well-known crafter Sara Naumann provides over 50 new projects that are modern and straightforward to replicate. She demonstrates how simple and quick resin jewellery is to make, using minimal equipment and readily available products. All relevant safety information is included, along with a troubleshooting section.

The technique is very easy: simply mix the two-part resin together and pour into a mould, bezel or pendant. Sara uses pre-made, inexpensive moulds in a variety of shapes and sizes. Rings, pendants, brooches, cufflinks, hairpins and bracelets are all achievable and look professional.

You can add numerous items to the resin to create different effects. Paper or foil inserts, for example an old photo or map, can provide a background for bezels of varying shapes and sizes, or make your own custom background by spraying or stencilling your own designs onto paper. You can also immerse various items in the resin before it cures, such as dried flowers, glitter, sequins, watch parts and gemstones, or use dyes and coloured inks to personalize. 

Create a broad range of fresh, stylish projects to make your own bespoke wearables or fabulous gifts.
