Last resin for a while

I did another series of 'as if holding water' (cold formed resin) earrings and pendants. Things I was testing: focussing on square and triangular shapes; leaving the metal with a brushed look; setting small metal fragments in the resin; and attempting to get the resin to set with minimum bubbles.

As you can see from the photos below I think I achieved my goals.

I did deviate and made a trio of pendants out of she small (3-3.5cm in diameter) Starburst Bowls I had made from the bases of small goblets. I used metallic coloured beads in these pieces so I ended up with a few more bubbles.

I think I have done enough resin work for the moment so I will give it a rest.

  3. I like these very much, B, and you've mastered the bubbles. Very pretty. Like Amanda I need more ears. At the moment I seem to be wearing your earrings almost exclusively, and love them all.

  4. Hi P, JM, A & C - I'm pleased this little lot appealed - looks like I'm on the right track with them. They will probably pop up in an Expo in October I have been invited to participate in. I had to laugh regarding the number of people requiring more ears!!! C - pleased that some of my earrings are still favourites with you. All - go well. B
