Resin - Jump Ring Pendant
Disposable Mixing bowl or cup
30-50 Silver Jump Rings
This project shows you how to use Silver jump rings as an embedding material to create a fun ring.
Find a resin mold is a desired size for your pendant, you could use a ice cube tray for a square pendant and just make it shallow, it will depend on your own style requirements as to what size and shape pendant you would like to use.
Pour your resin into your mold and allow it to settle for around 10 mins before dropping in your jump rings. Use a plastic knife or tweezers to push the rings into the mold or just let them settle naturally, make sure you don't push them to hard on the bottom. Allow it to set overnight.
To create a pendant simply drill a small hole and connect a jump ring, ribbon or chain.
