You’ve made a beautiful resin charm, and can’t wait to wear it. Except you have no idea how to make that happen. Do you need equipment? Fancy metal supplies? And what if you’ve never done this before?
Don’t worry. I’m going to show you how to make your resin charms wearable using jewelry findings.
Findings? Yep. That’s what you call them. And you’re right – it’s a peculiar thing to call them and I have no idea why.
Jewelry findings is the catch-all term for unused components you use with resin charms to make them wearable. These include:
Now that you know what the term jewelry findings mean, how do you use them to make resin jewelry?
Use jewelry adhesive on the bail and the resin charm, then bring the two pieces together. (It is that easy.)
Pro: I love this method for resin novices as you don’t need any unique skills or equipment.
Con: It requires a large surface to get good contact between the bail and resin.
Some findings need a hole in the resin charm. To do that, you’re going to need a drill.
Pro: You have more options of where to place your findings.
Con: Drills can cost up to $100 for a good one.
I know you’ve got more questions about using jewelry findings, which is why I’ve got this handy video.
Got five minutes? Then you’ve got time to watch.
Have more resin questions besides how to use jewelry findings?
I want to help. I wrote the book, Resin Fundamentals, for beginners like you. So instead of learning about resin through trial and error (which is no fun), you can learn from my 15 years of resin artist experience. Buy the ebook for less than the cost of a resin kit, and you’ll get a download link in minutes.
