Retired - Emerald Tidepool Necklace

PROJECT N2120
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
An organic Vintaj pewter bezel pendant is the perfect backdrop for a emerald artisan piece.
Instructions
These instructions will give you a necklace that is 16 inches in length. To adjust the size simply modify the length of chain respectively. It is also recommend that you use protective gloves and a face mask while working with resin. You will also need a toothpick and heat source such as a cigarette lighter.
  1. To begin, mix together the two part Ice Resin in a cup.
  2. Slowly add a tiny drop of the transparent dye. Build the color to your desired color. Mix until completely mixed.
  3. Carefully drip the resin into the bezel piece. Use a toothpick to help the resin get into the bezel and touch all the sides.
  4. After a few minutes use a heat source to bring any bubbles to the surface and out of the resin. Allow this piece to cure for at least 1-3 days.
  5. While your resin is curing you can prepare the rest of the necklace. Cut off 16 inches of bar chain. To one end attach one jump ring. Close the jump ring. Move to the other side of the chain open another jump ring and attach it to the final bar of the chain and attach one lobster clasp. Close the jump ring.
  6. Open one jump ring and attach it to the largest ring on the connector link, and around the center of the chain. Close the jump ring.
  7. Once your resin piece has dried, open another jump ring and attach the pendant to the bottom loop of the connector link. Close the jump ring.
  8. All done!
