OMG this resin earrings DIY project is so simple and the end result is so stunning. Imagine making sterling silver earrings for less then $4.00 a pair! Jumping right on the trend in geometric-shaped jewelry, I used small circle shaped rings and added a little flare with coloured resin and metallic powders.
Using quality tape (I like to use a translucent sealing tape), place the rings on the tape, pushing down firmly to make sure the seal is tight. This will ensure the resin does not leak out.
Pro tip: I folded the edges of the tape pieces so that I have some grip to move the tape around a bit or hold it down when adding the resin.
Time to mix the resin! I used Castin’ Craft Easy Cast resin because you only need a small amount and can mix this resin in small batches. I mixed the minimum amount, 1 tbsp of resin and 1 tbsp of hardener (2 tbsp of mixed resin in total). I like to use silicone containers that I can reuse by picking off the resin once cured.
Use a toothpick to add coloured resin to each ring. These are small and require a lot of patience. You also need to resist the urge to pour in too much resin at a time. I wish I had some of these pipettes on hand. They work great for this kind of work! I used a plastic straw to gently blow out the bubbles. Be careful here as you can spill the resin if you blow too forcefully.
