So, I’m having a great time using Alumilite Amazing Clear Cast Resin! I’ve been making resin earrings and its so much fun! These first two I posted yesterday before the findings were attached but these are better, clearer photos. I added Delica seed beads to each of these, setting some into them after the resin started to gel. This first pair has silvery beads in the front and behind those, black and white beads. I think these turned out pretty cute.   This pair I did a baby blue, bright pinkish purple, and white beads into. They are kind of 4th of July in feeling, though I’m a bit late for the holiday. These have a small tab at the top of the mold shape made to be drilled, so I got to see how good I am at putting holes in things.

That led me to eBay (just to look of course!) and had me searching for lots of yarn. Maybe someone wanted to clean out their stash and had a mess of yarn with a cheap bid. It doesn’t hurt to look, right?   These are the six hanks of recycled silk sari yarn I ended up buying Monday night, which was shipped out Tuesday, and arrived on WednesdayRead the rest…
