If you haven't tried your hand at resin crafting, this is the perfect project to start with. Resin comes in 2 parts, when mixed together creates a chemical reaction to harden it. It hardens to a glass like finish, shiny, smooth and crystal clear.


Resin can yellow over time, so it's best to use on surfaces that are darker in color or at least not white. All resins yellow over time, this is not brand specific. Just a heads up when working with it. It provides a glossy, wonderful finish!

I picked an "H" for my daughter, which letter will you choose?


Find a font that has the style of lettering you love. I love a great script font, you could use a permanent marker and hand letter it yourself, or use vinyl and cut it with an electronic cutting machine.

Step 3: Jewelry Resin

Now read the directions for the jewelry resin. It's so important to make sure you are fresh on the directions before mixing up resin. It's time sensitive and if it's not mixed right, it won't set right and your project will be ruined.
Okay, so read the directions.

This bezel does not need much resin, but mix 1 part resin with 1 part hardener and mix for 2 minutes.  Transfer into a second cup and stir with a second stick for 1 more minute.  Mixing this 2 phase process is crucial for the hard setting of the resin.


Mix slow so you don't whip excess bubbles into it.
