Even after several years of exploring resin, I’m still learning! Resin is one of those mediums that you can use to push the envelope and continue to discover what you can create next. Take a look at some of the artists that I find to be very inspiring in these 30 Inspiring Resin Jewelry Creations.
Alice Kresse is doing some seriously cool and hip pieces using resin! WOW! http://akresse.com/epoxy-resin/
Cat Kerr created these great pendants using sea glass, transfer images, copper foil iron solder and 2 part resin over the top. I think these are awesome! I’m so trying this! http://inthelightofthemoon.blogspot.co.uk/2012/02/sea-glass-pendants-and-my-sweet-friend.html

The contemporary resin pieces that Summer from Spotted Dog Farms is creating are stunning. Creating pieces like this is a time consumer! I’m totally in love with the idea that you could encapsulate your wedding flowers and have the piece signed with your wedding date. Isn’t that a cool gift idea? https://www.etsy.com/shop/SpottedDogAsheville
Carla de la Cruz is doing some beautiful constellation inspired jewelry! http://www.carladelacruzjewelry.com/?page_id=116&mycart_category=19
Jessica and Gwynne Burgess sell some beautiful bangles and rings on their Etsy site, Rosella Resin. The colors are so soft and sweet. And then mixed with those gold flakes. Yummy! https://www.etsy.com/shop/RosellaResin/sold?page=8<id=258065820
I’m totally nuts-o over Carol-Ann’s resin pieces on Resin8ing Darkness. This woman is a hidden gem! Great images! Great shapes! Great design! A++++!!!

I thought Alice Bignami Todd’s resin play was awesome. This is a great way to use up that excess resin. Alice writes:
“To make this pendant, I first poured the excess resin mix from a previous project onto a smooth sheet protector (made of polypropylene or polyethylene to which the resin does not bond) and left it to cure. Next I lifted off the set resin and cut it into small pieces with scissors to make the “mosaic tiles”. Finally, I put a base layer of white colorized resin into a Nunn Design grande square pendant and before it set I arranged the “mosaic tiles” in the resin with a toothpick.” https://www.etsy.com/shop/resinjewelsbyalice
I thought these resin spacers were awesome.
In this tutorial from What I Do, they walk you through the steps of finishing resin. I think all consumers should see this. It sure made me have an appreciation for the labor involved in these bracelets! http://whatido.com/posts/resin-finishing-like-a-pro
