I’ve been playing with resin again…

and having so much fun!  This time I’ve printed text on translucent paper and when the resin is poured on it, the paper virtually disappears so the words almost seem to be floating on their own.   Hammer textured bronze rings hold the text and I couldn’t resist adding  fuchsia colored glass shards and a sprinkle of “fairie dust” to them.  Patinaed bronze metal clay in the shape of tiny nautilus shells are suspended on 18 gauge sterling wire and swing to and fro.  These earrings are light weight and comfortable with a lot of movement!  This pair will be going to Brio Gallery in Galena, but I’ll be making more earrings using resin in this fashion and plan to have several pair available in my Etsy shop soon!
