5 Resin Jewelry Designs To Make When You’re Stuck For Ideas

Five resin jewelry designs to make

You’ve got an afternoon to yourself. So you’ve gathered your resin supplies because you’re not going to let this free time go to waste. But as you pull up your chair, you’re for resin jewelry designs to make.

I’ve got some resin jewelry designs for you to try, but I’ve got something else to share first.



1. You’re doing it from a place of learning.

This is like your high school biology experiments. Your teacher gave you the steps, and you recreated them. How else are you supposed to know how to grow fruit flies if you don’t get the starter kit?

Because the college course is where you learn that two-week-old peaches grow fruit flies all by themselves. 😂

2. You’re not passing it off as your original idea.

If you’re recreating resin jewelry designs, then give credit where it’s due. Because not doing that means you’re a son of a motherless chicken donut.


So now that we’ve got that out of the way, here are five resin jewelry designs you can make on your next epoxy crafting day.

💡 Pro tip: Make all the designs first, then add resin. That way, you won’t waste any of your clear epoxy by making one pendant at a time.

First layer

Glue paper images into a jewelry bezel blank with glue. Apply a layer of glue to the bottom of the pendant. Then, coat the back of the paper with glue and place it in the bezel. Finally, add enamel powders into the bezel to accent the border between the two pieces.

Use a hole punch to randomly punch circles in colored papers. Add glue to the bottom of your jewelry bezel. Place the paper dots in the pendant. Then, apply a layer of glue over the entire punched dot surface.

Resin jewelry designs without a bit of glitter? Don’t even consider it. 😜

Use a vintage image as your base, then fill in the gap around the edge with glitter mixed with glue to fill in the gap.

Or you can use glitter glue for this step too.

Second layer

It’s time to mix the resin.

The Resin Obsession crystal doming resin is perfect for giving a crystal-clear finish to your resin jewelry designs. It self-levels meaning you don’t have to do any extra work to get an even surface. Plus, it cures glossy and shiny.

Place the tissue paper on top of the resin without sealing it. It will take up the moisture stain of the resin, making the paper translucent.
