pink speckled resin earrings

These shimmery earrings can be customized in endless ways by adding foils and/or glitters to UV resin. Ready in just minutes!
Step 1

Make sure the mold is clean, dry and free of dust.

Step 2

Pour enough clear resin to cover the bottom of the mold cavity directly from the bottle.

Step 3

Now, add hot pink holographic pieces to the clear resin as desired.

Step 4

Heat under a UV lamp for one light cycle (or place in direct sunlight for about 15-20 minutes) to cure this first layer.

Step 5

Pour some UV resin into a silicone mixing dish and add a few drops of white dye into the resin. Mix well.
TIP: Start with 2-3 drops and add more if an opaquer white is desired.

Step 6

Pour the white resin into the cavity until full.

Step 7

Cure the mold under the UV lamp (or in direct sunlight) for several minutes until completely cured. Cool for 1-2 minutes. De-mold the shape by popping it out of the mold.
TIP: If still slightly tacky, cure again under the UV light.

Step 8

Mark extra where extra holes are needed to attach to the hammered half circle metal shapes. Place the shape on top of the resin shape and align the middle hole on the connector to the hole at the top of the shape. Mark the hole and either side.

Step 9

Use the hand drill to add additional holes to the shapes.

Step 10

Attach the shapes to the metal connector with jump rings.
TIP: To open and close a jump ring, simply grasp the jump ring on both sides with chain nose pliers and twist the ring open, from side-to-side. Never pull the jump ring which can cause distortion.

Step 11

Carefully open the loop at the bottom of a fishhook earring, slide through the hole at the top of the metal connector and close the loop.
