This "pearls in resin" project was completely inspired by a designer/author I admire. I have featured and linked to Lisa Pace several times and thought that you might enjoy seeing something inspired by her latest book.
My supply list was minimal.
2. Nunn Design Ornate Grande Brooch Oval Antique Gold.
3. A collection of broken and single pearl earrings and necklaces.
4. The new book by Lisa Pace.
In Lisa's book I saw this gorgeous charm project. She simply filled a bezel with pearls and poured in resin. In ten years of resin work I have never done that. I thought it looked wonderful!
I did put some glue into my bezel so that I could arrange my pearls and know that they would stay in place.
The back of the Nunn Design brooch already has both a pin back and a link to make it a pendant. This is why I worked on a stack of cardboard.
When all my pearls were in place and the glue had dried I poured in Jewelry Resin. Everything looks like it is floating in water now!

I'll also have a give-a-way at the end of the week so you can win the whole new collection!
