For those of you vacationing for July 4rth at the beach this is a little reminder to gather some small shells for your resin projects. Shells in resin look great...but shells attached with resin clay look even better!
For my pendant I started with a finished shell component that already had drilled holes. Jewelry Clay
and blue Pearl-ex was all I needed for my project now.
I placed some Jewelry Clay on the edge of my pendant and then artfully arranged my shells into it. Even tiny glass beads stuck to the clay perfectly. Then I brushed Pearl-ex over the whole project Pearl-ex only clings to the clay, so when my piece was cured I brushed away the excess.
So gather some shells this week if you can.....and pick up some Jewelry Clay
in your travels too!
