So you’re ready to make resin earrings. Something cute. And colorful. Preferably creative. And if you can make those resin earrings the easy way, well, winner-winner chicken dinner.
Now, your next question is probably how you’ll make these earrings with resin — the easy way.
Oh, I’m so glad you asked.
Resin Supplies list:
Boho chic earrings silicone mold
Resin Obsession super clear resin
Pearl Ex powdered pigments
Jump rings and ear wires
Step 1: Color the mold.
Dust the molds with the Pearl Ex powder. Be sure to dust the mold details thoroughly. Once finished, tap out any excess powder.
Step 2: Fill with resin.
Mix 1/2 ounce total of super clear resin, then pour into the molds. Go over the surface of the resin with a heat gun to remove bubbles before letting the resin cure. It will take the resin 24 hours to harden.

Step 3: Demold.
Once the resin earrings are dry, peel the mold away and lift out your earrings.
Hey, did you notice how the color brushed onto the surface of the boho earrings mold colored the resin? That’s just one of the cool things about using pearl ex powders with resin.
Step 4: Highlight detail.
Now here’s where this part of how to make boho earrings gets super fun.
Choose an acrylic paint that contrasts your resin color and brush it over the earring surface. Then, wipe the surface of the resin earrings with a paper towel. Because the holes of the earrings are small, you may need to repeat this a few times to ensure all the holes are filled.
Technical note: The earring on the left was wiped with a paper towel, while the earring on the left was dabbed with a paper towel. It comes down to your preference for how much paint color you want on your boho chic resin earrings.
[OPTIONAL] Step 5: Add glitter.
This step of how to make boho earrings isn’t required, but I find the glitter adds some extra pizazz. While the paint is still wet, lightly sprinkle glitter over the earrings. Then, let the paint dry.
Step 6: Attach findings.
Add jump rings and ear wires to the resin earrings to make them wearable.
Aren’t these boho earrings fabulously chic?
I love how the earring molds give texture to the resin. Add a little bit of glitter, and WOW!
These earrings look like they’ve been inlaid with stones, especially the bronze and turquoise pair at the top left. I can’t wait to wear them!
