More Resin Works in Progress…


I so love wearing the rings I’ve made using faux crystals!  Everywhere I go people comment on how unusual they are and ask what types of stones I’ve used in them. IMHO, faux crystals made from resin are fantastic substitutes for the real thing…not only are they beautiful, but incredibly durable.  Had I used actual crystals in the rings I recently made, they would have broken or chipped by now as I’m rather hard on jewelry, dropping pieces or clumsily knocking them against doorways and walls! Shown in the above photo and fresh out of their silicon molds is a collection of yellow-green faux Beryl crystals that I made this past week.  I intend to make more rings (of course!  Can one ever have too many rings?  I think not!) and perhaps several drop pendants using these as focal stones set in sterling silver. Stay tuned!

  1. How large are the rings Barbara? I love large statement jewelry, always have. Has nothing to do with the fact I am 5’8.5″. If it doesn’t shout, I pass.

    • My latest rings measure 1.25” and 1.5” in diameter and I’ve switched to fingerless gloves to accommodate them! I feel the same way about ring size as you do. Dinky rings just don’t cut it for me and I’m only 5’1”.
