RESIN RINGS








Last night I had my normal insomnia, so I decided to be productive and work on some ring samples for my upcoming resin workshop.  Why do I decide to do these things at midnight?  Anyway,  I had lots of fun making these and could have stayed up all night working on them!  The square one was made with a reprint of ancient Greek text taken from the Rosetta Stone that I applied acrylic paint to. The larger of the round bezels is a mosaic that I made from bits of eggshell.  The smaller of of the round bezels is simply a scrap of pretty paper, overpainted with acrylic paint.  Once the paper (or eggshells) are set into the bezels, they are covered with resin and allowed to set for 8-12 hours and cured for a couple of days.  I wish they would hurry up, I want to wear the green one!

For more information on my all-day resin workshop on Saturday, February 28th, contact Bead Haven in Cedar Rapids, Iowa at 319-247-2323 or visit their website here.  The class description should be up on their website soon.
