PROJECT N8065
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
Pleasing shades of lavender meld in this vintage style necklace, using a mix of 2-part resin and pigment. A Swarovski Crystal pearl floats at the center of a Nunn Design antiqued gold bezel. The pendant is embellished on the back with floral etchings, and hangs from a finished ball chain.
Instructions
In addition to the materials listed, you will also need a few toothpicks, a face mask, and some disposable gloves to complete this project.
  1. To set your pearl: Begin by using a toothpick to apply a small amount of E6000 glue to the center of your bezel. Set one 6mm Swarovski Crystal pearl into the glue, positioning the bead so that the holes won't show once the resin is added. Allow to dry for one hour.
  2. If you are new to using 2-part epoxy resin, please watch the video: How to Use Nunn Design Resin.
  3. To see how to color your resin, please also watch this video: How to Mix Nunn Design Resin and Castin Craft Pigment
  4. To mix your resin: Put on your disposable gloves and face mask. Based on the instructions in the video in step 2, measure your resin and stir with a popsicle stick until all striations are gone.
  5. Using what you have learned in the video in step 3, color your resin "Lavender Herb" using the following ratio of pigments to resin: 1 tsp Nunn Design Resin, 1 tiny toothpick tip Blue, 1 toothpick tip Red, and 2 toothpick tips White. Mix thoroughly.
  6. Next, use the tip of a clean toothpick to carefully drip the desired amount of resin into the bezel around the pearl.
  7. To attach your chain: Use pliers to open a 5mm jump ring, and slide on the loop of your pendant. Also slide on your 2mm finished ball chain. Close the jump ring.
  8. Enjoy your necklace!
