resin bead necklace

Make a statement with one-of-a-kind jewelry beads that you can create with just a small amount of resin. These beads are fun to create using leftover resin from other projects.
Step 1

Mix 20 mL of clear casting resin according to package directions. This will be enough resin to fill both the large and small round bead molds.

Step 2

Split resin into different mixing cups and create desired mixes. To make beads similar to the ones used in this project you’ll need the following:

  • Gold foil flakes mixed with clear resin.
  • Opaque white resin dye mixed with clear resin.
  • Copper mica powder mixed with clear resin.
  • Dark pink mica powder mixed with clear resin. You can achieve different shades by mixing different powders together!
  • Opaque yellow resin dye mixed with clear resin.
Step 3

Place mold on a protected surface and pour various mixtures into the molds as desired. Make sure to get out any bubbles by squeezing the bottom of the mold to bring them to the surface.

Step 4

Let the resin cure for 12-24 hours and remove beads from mold.

Step 5

String the beads onto necklace chain.
TIP: You may need to remove the clasp or a link to do so.
