leaf hoop earrings

Try making this easy set of earrings, made in just minutes, with new UV ResinCraft for that chic, boutique-look. Use fillers, like dried flowers or glitter, to make a completely custom piece.
Step 1
Make sure mold is clean, dry and free of dust. Pour UV Resin into the mold directly from the bottle into the circle hoop mold, filling the cavity less than a third of the way. Pre-cure under the lamp for one minute or leave in sunlight for 5 minutes.
Step 2

Add dried flowers and leaves, placing them precisely with tweezers.

TIP: Take your time to move each element in place, making sure that no air bubbles get trapped underneath. Keep in mind that the bottom-most part of the molded piece is the front. Front-face your design and flowers toward the bottom of the mold.

Step 3
Pour additional resin to fill the mold to the top.
Step 4
Next use a small silicone cup to mix a small amount of resin with fine Gold glitter. stir to combine. Pour this into the small circle mold. Cure the mold under the UV Lamp for several minutes until completely cured. Cool for 1-2 minutes.
Step 5

De-mold the shapes by popping them out of the mold.

TIP: If still slightly tacky, cure again under the UV light.

Step 6
Place a drop of the UV resin on the back of the smaller glitter piece and place the flat pad earring finding. Cure under the light to attach the findings.
Step 7
Connect the two pieces with a jump ring.
Step 8

Repeat Steps 1-7 for the second earring.
