Art resin pendant necklace – How to make a pearl and turquoise pendant

How to make a turquoise and pearl pendant with resinMaking a beautiful art resin pendant necklace is easier than it looks.  The secret sauce is knowing a key detail about resin so you know when to make it work to your advantage.

Resin Supplies needed for this tutorial:

Step 1:  Prepare the resin


measure resin

Measure the resin and hardener into two separate cups.  Add colors to the Part A (resin) side.

To get the turquoise blue color shown here, I used the formulas in this article on how to mix colors.

Thoroughly mix the resin.  Make sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the cup along with the mixing stick itself.

Step 2:  Pour into the bezel blank

pouring resin

Pour a small amount of resin into the bezel.  Be careful not to overpour.  Allow curing until sticky.

So you may be asking yourself how you know when the resin is sticky.  Keep a small amount of your resin in the mixing cup.  Check it periodically.  Once it shows a string when you pull out the toothpick, that is what I call sticky.  (This took approximately 2 hours.)

Step 3:  Add bling to your art resin pendant necklace

Gently place your pearls into your resin.  (Having the resin at the sticky point will keep your pearls from sinking to the bottom.). Set aside to cure.

  1. I love this Katherine….But I have 1 question …can I use the hardener that I use ? I use the easy cast so will it work just the same and add it to the color resin? thanks Kathy Howington ..p.s. hope to hear from you soon ..

  2. Hi Kathy,

    Resins and their hardeners are specific to each other. For our color blast resin, you will either need to use the Part B (purchased separately), or you can use the hardener with our super clear resin kits. The Easy Cast resin hardener will not work.
