Free Resin Jewelry Design Instructions

Speaking of projects and resin. Being a big fan of resin myself, I recently designed a holiday bracelet using resin in a few different ways. Click through for a Holiday Resin Bracelet, materials list, and instructions.

I hope you are inspired to make one or three, or you find you can take the techniques in your own direction.

Insider notes:
The colors in this bracelet are inspired by the Swarovski crystals Artemis bead (article 5540) in olivine and the lucerna bead (article 5030) in Siam. Once I picked out the crystals, I think I put the most time into experimenting and finding the right materials to create complementary colors for transforming the charms so they matched the crystals.

This design can be recreated with so many other colors. Have fun experimenting and designing your own variations with the charms and beads that inspire you.
