Resin jewelry charms

Let me share a little secret with you. The easiest way to make resin charms wearable is to use resin jewelry molds that cast with the findings holes in place. That means instead of drilling holes in the resin charms, the resin forms around a stem, leaving a hole when you remove the charms. That means you don’t need any special equipment or skills to turn your charms into wearable jewelry. Simply demold, attach jewelry findings, and wear! Here’s the easiest resin jewelry project you will ever make.
